Film News: Double trouble from Dubble
Last year Dubble released two specialist films in conjunction with KONO! The Reanimated Film. And now they are back again with a couple more wild experimental films for you to try out. And as a special reward for JCH readers, we have some of this film to give away if you read to the end.

They will be available online via and KONO’s own store from 26th March as well as selected stores in the coming days.

The first collaboration back in October led to the release of a limited run of speciality films. They were very popular and sold out fast. It was then decided to carry on the production and expand the range as a response to the increasing demand of speciality 35mm with unique effects

Introducing two new films: Monsoon and Bubblegum

As with the first two films, the two new ones have been created using a one-of-a-kind machine called “The Reanimator”; a device developed by KONO’s Uwe and Ralf Mimoun. The Reanimator produces a mix of digital and analog film manipulation directly onto 35mm.

Both films have been reanimated with two different full frame tints producing varied results depending on shooting conditions.

1/ MONSOON EDITION : fresh tones like after a monsoon rain

2/ BUBBLEGUM EDITION : sweet colours that will inspire your taste buds

Technical information:

Both editions will be colour 35mm, 200 ISO 24 exposure and will require a standard C-41 process. Any mini-lab will be able to process and scan dubble film

Where to buy:

Stores to be announced in the coming days

About dubble

Launched in 2013 dubble is a mobile app that allows people to mix photos with anyone in the world. Inspired by 35mm film swapping dubble has its roots in analogue photography.
Since the launch of dubble two other photo apps have been released: dubble studio (to create double exposures with your own photos) and dubble print (print your photos onto a variety of products).
The launch of dubble film brings it in line with its heritage as well as providing a nod to all of its users that shoot film.

About KONO! The Reanimated Film

Launched in 2014 by Uwe Mimoun Is an European analogue photographic company currently developing a range of creative 35mm films.
KONO! films are based on obscure stock originally intended for shooting motion pictures, scientific use or anyplace else where photosensitive emulsions were used. Despite their outlandish origins all films were treated in a way, that they can be developed at standard mini labs.

The newest invention is a hybrid device called “Reanimator”, linking the digital to the analogue world on photographic films. Each product is made and packaged by hand.
All films are produced on machines designed and built by us. KONO! films are sold worldwide by selected partners.

So, now that you have been through all of this you are probably thinking “Hey JCH, how do I get my free film?”, well it is simple. Kono and Dubble will give 1 reader a 4 pack of the Dubble films. All you need to do is comment below on how you would use the film. The best comment will be selected by us and you will get some film to play with. Simple.

Bonus points for funny/sharp comments of course.

    As a student who is in the final stages of his Bachelor’s degree my life with friends is filled with despair and momentary happiness. I would use these films in a project where I am recording the last time I am spending with the people around me during our last time together. All the mixed emotions and events that happen in this turbulent part of our lives.

    I’ll use the films to catch a swamp gas monster in the woods!

    I’d load up some point and shoots and send them around the globe to 24 different people before receiving them back. leaving single rolls of film with 24 different countries on them. It’s a project I’ve been wanting to do for a while and this film would be ideal for it.

    I would take psychedelic images of me and my friends, and family, doing stupid things.

    Selfies of me in the shower. Hope this stuff is water is water proof.

    I would shoot them as I do any other 200 speed color film. Normal everyday life scenarios. I’d like to see how they perform under regular/average use.

    These unique films will be used by a silly wandering wizard for the very simple, and laughable purpose of altering human perception of space, time, and reality, in a small, sexy, and magical little town.

    Personally I would take the film with me to New York City during my next street photography visit & shoot some out of they way highly colorful locations

    I want to take a lot of portraits with this film. Really get the weirdness of it out in portraits of people.

    That and Id love to see how the monsoon reacts in a tvs / t4.

    I would use those films in street photography in New York City.

    i’ve been stuck using Kodak Portra for too long. looking to open my mind to the kaleidoscope world you can provide me.

    Really looking forward KONO! to use their ¨Reanimator¨ on Fujifilm so they can get their sh*t together and back to life.

    The bubblegum film would be perfect for the festival I’m helping organise in June! Sunshine, music and my XA4 – what could be better?

    I am here to kick ass and chew Bubblegum. And I am all out of Bubblegum. This year, I am goig to traver to Sunstroked Las Vegas, gaze over the Golden Gate Bridge at the Stroke of Moon and hopefully dodge any Monsoon while on the streets of NYC, all heading back home to Hamburg.
    Winning this film would help me capture all of these experiences.

    kill all four films on gibberish.
    lose half of all frames cause my new contax is nearly broken, but I still use it for all the “uhhs” and “awws”.
    scan them with a “darkroom”-app.
    load’em up to Instagram, just for the #nofilter

    I would love to shoot the Iguazu Fall with these beauties

    I would shoot something that makes you want to give those 4 packs of film to me. Just give the roll and you’ll find out

    These would be great to use for my upcoming trip to Osaka and Kyoto! Unique color films for colorful cities!

    I am often shooting expired film solely for the look it gives. Films imperfections and unique aesthetics is a great part of the reasons to shoot film! Even mistakes often adds to the picture. Given the signature look of these films, without much of the dullness of expired film we could potentially create something really beautiful here. Hoping for you to share some of the goodness and we’ll see what this film is really capable of. Would absolutely love to get my hands on some of these gems.

    I’d love to shoot the bubblegum with a heavily inked alt model I know… and the other roll with the same model for the contrast between “pop” and “introspective”

    “Prepare for trouble,
    And Make it double!
    To protect the world from discontinuition,
    To unite all people within our invention,
    To denounce the evil of tyrants and lowballers,
    To extend our reach to the stars of above,
    Team Reanimator blast off at the speed of light!
    Surrender now or prepare to fight!
    Mimoun~!, Thats Right!”

    Gotta Catch’em All!

    Thats going to be my rhyme when I think about ‘BubbleGum’ – Jessie/Pink
    ‘Monsoon’ – James/Blue. Going to capture loads of BoKehBalls with them!

    I’d use the film for portraits leading up to 600 in my 1000 portrait project, to give some interesting colours and effects, and being more film into the project.

    Joe H. March 28, 2018 at 3:03 am / Reply

    I would use the film to capture my signature, mediocre-at-best, shots of my day to day life. To further ensure the pictures’ mediocrity, I will develop the film at home, like always, to really get the amateur look that I have been excelling at.

    Wouldn’t Bubblegum film just make my sticky light seals worse?

    As a person, who occasionally struggles with an anxiety from modern life, I realised the importance of mindfulness, which for me is to focus away by taking photographs of various places that might have some vintage or even cinematic quality about them. In my approach I am looking to create ‘authentic-original’ that means to capture an essence of space or place that refers its back to ‘original’ state with only ‘authentic’ use of particular types of film strictly without any editing. So far I have been using old Polaroids or other expired and experimental films, but trying Dubble films will be certainly an interesting step forward,especially with their cinematic colour tones.

    I would use the film to moon soon and chew bubblegum. And I’m all outta gum.

    This is just in time for the new annual 96 shots film project! 96 shots will make the viewer believe that some photographers should be monitored for proper medication levels.

    There is an evil plan for 24 of those shots: I’ll load my wife’s camera with a roll and not tell her what is loaded. So she’ll doubtless assume it is HP5 or something similar in B&W. Who knows what will happen? Maybe she’ll use B&W contrast filters or a polarizer; the results could be strange.

    All 96 shots to be taken on the same day. But maybe it will take a week.

    Accept no substitues. Give that film to an awful photographer like me, and then the true merits of the film will become apparent!

    You say one. I say two.
    One for me and one for you.
    Dubble is as double does,
    Twice is better, just because.
    And so it is, and shall be,
    One for you, and one for me.

    Let us, then, uncouple from
    Ideas about “bubblegum” –
    Awful, pink, way too sweet –
    A film? From Dubble? A feat!
    Reddish, warmish, OMG!
    I want some Bubblegum for me!

    And, I hear, they have Monsoon –
    Moist and soft, not a simoon
    Of heat and grit, nay, but gentle
    Something to want, unlike kentle;
    And then to make with a full heart
    Filmy, lucious, decadent art.

    Oh, Bellamy, can’t you see?
    None for you! All for me,
    My OM-1, and not the “2”,
    Old lenses like my Angenieux –
    Let me win, oh please! Oh please!
    Say, “Yes! You win!” Don’t be a tease!

    I will use this film to take promotional photos for Double Bubble Gum. Maybe then they wont be after any royalties!

    Will load it in my p&s olympus and shoot follow-up downhill runs on freebord and longboard with friends here in China as well as shooting some casual photos of rural areas where we ride.

    Would love to run a roll through my T4 on the streets of San Francisco/ redwoods of the Northern CA.

    Monsoon season’s not too far away here where I am. The monsoon film might be pretty fitting!

    If you let me win the film, I’ll make sure not to mess up before having them developed.

    This is my submission for the giveaway.

    Raquel Cantero Alfaro April 4, 2018 at 7:50 pm / Reply

    I will use those new films with the new old analog cameras that I usually buy hier in the fleamarkets of south germany. I´ll test both at the same time, film and camera. I´ll develop the film by my self too…
    Let´s see!
