70mm Cruel Drool Dual Jewel Analog – Yule Log 2.015

What’s up yule foolz?  Only complete toolz deny the annual logz of yoolz.  This year we kicked the format up about as far as it can go short of IMAX and opted for vertically composed 70mm film for 2015′s nod to the log.  It’s got drool.  It’s got dual jewelz.  It’s got action that’s on the mild side of cruel.  And, despite its delivery being digital, this egg-nog paired log has originated from the analog.

Keep the shiny side up and your negatives uncut, and let the log’n rock your noggin.

Be sure and check out all of this year’s Yule Log 2.015 loops at watchyulelog.com

Thanks to Yule Log 2.0 creator/curator Daniel Savage and digital agency Wondersauce for putting this together each year!

A roll of completely exposed Kodak Verichome film from over 70 years ago sits waiting to share its secrets.

After wrestling the film from the spool and into a processing tank, the chemical process can begin.

Once dry, the film gives up a story told only in images.

Overlapping exposures from a possibly malfunction camera populate the strip.

Fogging from years of radiation cloud the frames and soften the pictures.

With just a few simple chemicals, the power and persistence of analog capture is demonstrated nearly seventy years later.

Kodak HC-110, Dilution B.  8 minutes.  Cold 62F.
