The Labcaf

The non-toxic method of the Labcaf allows filmmakers to set up in spaces that do not have sophisticated ventilation systems (like an artist studio). Instant coffee and washing soda are the basis for one formula, which until now has been used by a small group of enthused still photographers. The Labcaf offers a model for moving larger quantities of motion picture film (i.e. hundreds of feet) through non-toxic processing baths. Our research includes a working prototype for processing film (with inspiring results!) and feasible alternatives to reinvigorate analog filmmaking.
