John Reuter and the Fate of the Polaroid 20x24 (216)


Delve into the world of both analog and digital photography with John Reuter who is an accomplished artist, photographer, filmmaker, and director of the 20x24 Studio - the home of the mammoth Polaroid 20x24 camera.

John discusses the continuing development, shooting, and editing of his film Camera Ready - a fascinating documentary of the Polaroid 20x24 camera and the artists that use it. John reveals his reasons for getting rid of his two Panasonic GH4’s and switching over to filming with a Sony a7sII and a Canon C100 Mark II. A lot of ground is covered in this lengthy conversation - from the challenges of mixing footage from different cameras, funding the production of the documentary, and two possible futures for the Polaroid 20x24 Project.
