A teaser trailer for a new film going behind-the-scenes at the Ilford Photo film production plant in England has been released online.
Ilford Photo announced the film with the teaser trailer via social media on Tuesday (9 July).
Ilford Photo said on Twitter: “Take a look inside our factory in Mobberley, England where we manufacture the ILFORD and Kentmere ranges of black and white films, photographic paper and chemicals.” The tweet was accompanied by a 58-second teaser trailer of the black-and-white film, which was made by Sarah Reyes and Daniel Driensky, under the name Exploredinary.
The film comes as Ilford Photo prepares to celebrate its 140th anniversary.
The company, one of the world’s leading producers of black-and-white film, was set up in 1879, originally in Ilford, north east of London.
There’s no further information on how long the film will be, nor when and how the full version will be released.
From the short excerpt shown on social media, the film shows the production of film at Ilford Photo, which also makes the Kentmere brand films alongside classic black-and-white emulsions such as HP5 and FP4.
The company used to be known as Ilford and moved to the Mobberley site in Cheshire in 1983.
In 2004, as film sales began to fall, the company went bankrupt with debts of £40m, but was resurrected a year later after a management buyout.
