(The Dissolve) Yesterday, Kodak officially emerged from bankruptcy, returning to operation as a business primarily interested in packaging, graphic communications, and functional printing. (Translation: they've put a lot of money into proprietary commercial printing technology, touchscreens, and the like.)
Celluloid stock will still be part of the restructured company's plans: Andrew Evenski, president of the Entertainment & Commercial Film division, told Variety Kodak had created two new archival film stocks last year. Studios were leery of trying out stock from a company in the middle of bankruptcy. "We're viable again, so I'm hopeful the studios will take another look at film and archiving," Evenski said.
