When Polaroid stopped production of their instant picture film, some folks came up with an impossible idea. Why not produce the instant film ourselves. So they purchased the the complete production equipment and got started.
This spring they did „the impossible“ For some Polaroid cameras you can once again get instant B&W and color film.

Andreas Hentschel and Marlene Kelnreiter are with us in the studio demonstrating exactly that this can be done. Next up on the agenda for the „Impossible Project“ is a solution to seperate the battery from the film pack, charge it back up and save the environment at the same time. Seems like the sky the limit when were talking Impossible projects.
