Process Reversal develops resources, materials and tools to make film more accessible. Upcoming projects include a video series on techniques and processes, manufacturing rollers for projection loops, and designing and producing new processing equipment.
PR is also committed to developing Lab spaces for film artists and educators to work. We provide equipment to existing communities, and we are working to create an entirely new Lab of our own from the ground up in Denver, CO.
Literary Resource Archive
The objective of the Literary Resource Archive is to locate and acquire important technical literature on film in order to make it available to the public. These literary works (which are either in the public domain or supplied to us by the authors) can be of historic or contemporary value and span the whole spectrum of film making, such as production, aesthetics, theory and research.
Film Labs Wiki (formerly The Formulary Database for Motion Picture Film)
The objective of the Film Labs Wiki project is to create a public platform for distributing information and discussing processes and procedures for film making. This project is currently in Beta.
The objective of the Film Processing Tank project is to design an open source device for hand processing film on a reel. This project is currently in Beta.
