Street Candy Film calls it a day and shuts shop citing rising cost of production

Vincent says that he doesnt understand what his next job will be, however hes taking a break from running a business for his own well being. Whatever he ultimately selects to pursue next, we want him well!

The exact same post was also made to Street Candys Instagram, ingrained below. The posts check out …

In 2020, the company ended up being the first to offer 35mm film in recycled cardboard containers instead of the decades-old plastic cylinders much of us matured with in the pre-digital era, in an effort to reduce plastic waste. This is something that the likes of Ilford, Kodak and Fujifilm (assuming Fuji does not kill whatever off first) needs to actually have selected up on by now.

The company launched two films. ATM 400 in 2018, which was made from security monitoring film and used a wonderful contrasty look and MTN100 in 2021, another white and black film made from motion picture movie stock. As of the Facebook statement, they stated there were 174 rolls of ATM400 left, and now both movies are now listed as ceased and out of stock on the Street Candy site.

Its with an aching heart that Im announcing completion of #streetcandyfilm
Ive done everything I might to keep this running and had fantastic hope in the future after all the assistance we received from you all, since the beginning and, particularly when I announced just recently that I was struggling to keep things running.
There are some things that our out of my control and when your company depends on a movie manufacturer who decides to triple the cost of film over night, there is simply nothing left I can do. As much as I hate to write these words I do not see myself offering film for 15EUR a roll.
Not exactly sure what Ill do next but for now I prefer to end this here and take a break from running this business for my own well being.
If you wish to grab some prior to theyre gone for excellent, the last 174 rolls of ATM400 left in stock are now readily available on the site.
Im out of words for now so Ill end up by thanking again our dear professional photographers and partners who helped us and participated of this adventure to #keepfilmalive

Rising costs arent precisely uncommon nowadays with production and logistics problems brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, particularly when it concerns movie. Simply recently, Fujifilm revealed that it will be increasing its prices on film and developing services throughout the world due to the increased cost of raw materials along with transport and “the decline in demand for photographic associated items”– lower production volumes increase expense per product, too, pandemic-related price boosts notwithstanding.

Well, this is sad news. movie business Street Candy Film, established in 2018 by Vincent Moschetti is stopping. In a post to their Facebook page, the company revealed that while they had fantastic expect the future, increasing expenses from their providers have actually provided them no option. They state the maker who produces their product “choose [d] to triple the cost of film over night” there was nothing left for them to do.
