Film News: The Hillvale Cube
How cool is this? When I first saw it I couldn’t tell what it was until I saw the telltale signs of film canisters. Hillvale Photo in Melbourne has been very busy indeed. So busy that they crushed up 50,000 empty canisters and turned it into a work of art.
Presenting Cubes by Hillvale Photo. On the 2nd of May, 2016, Hillvale developed their 50,000th roll of film since opening. Follow the link @hillvalephoto or hillvale.com.au/cubes to watch the process of what Hillvale did with 50,000 empty film canisters.
This is 50,000 film canisters crushed into cubes.
This is a dedication to all of you who have used Hillvale. Hillvale started with an inherited machine with the aim to offer a more affordable, relevant and community focused photo lab service. Without you, Hillvale wouldn’t be able to continue developing film and improving their service everyday. Hillvale strive to give you the best outcome they can through your comments, acknowledgements and criticism. Here’s to the next 50,000.
In case you didn’t know, Hillvale Photo is a friendly little lab with some really passionate staff. They have been nice enough to send me some pictures of the store. I will definitely have to put this on my places to visit list. If you are in Melbourne then you should definitely hit them up.
Congratulations on the 50,000 rolls guys. Here’s looking forward to the next sculpture.
