The Analogue Photography Series: Film is Still Alive

Film is Still Alive
Take Kayo (Bigheadtaco)

It’s hard to believe that five years have already passed since the documentary “Film is still alive” was released. I had the pleasure of being featured in this project, directed by Take Kayo, who is also known as Bigheadtaco on YouTube. Looking back, it’s amazing to see how much the film community has grown in such a short amount of time.

One thing that hasn’t changed, however, is the love and passion that people have for film photography. Despite the rise in prices, more and more people are becoming interested in shooting film. As someone who has been shooting film for years, I don’t want to see anyone give it up because of the cost. It’s worth every penny.

For me, film photography is more than just a hobby. It’s a tangible and physical way of capturing moments in our lives that can only happen once. Film slows down the process of photography and forces you to be intentional with your shots. It’s a beautiful and rewarding process that I wouldn’t trade for anything.

The documentary “Film is still alive” captured the essence of the analogue film community and showcased the diverse range of people who make it what it is. From professional photographers to avid amateurs, there’s a place for everyone in this community. The documentary also highlighted the photographers, communities, and shop owners that support and promote film photography.

It’s reassuring to see that, even in 2023, film is still alive and well. I’m grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of this documentary and to have met so many amazing people in the film community. I look forward to seeing where the future takes us and continuing to capture moments on film.
