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.
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
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

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.
