  • Where at in Nevada?

  • I love this channel

  • make a video from film

  • thats why ypu use a dark red room

  • whoa i didnt expect that this video is a crossover ones! hey matpat from film theory! *minutes 9:15

  • 12:29 confidence 1000

  • Come on, if your being honest, this video just sums up why digital is better than film... The colour pictures were wack and now need digital colour grading 😂

  • Is it only me.... or they are time by time putting inception soundtrack in background.

  • I'm like .... So sure nicko smokes weed

  • Omg, you guys go to Samy's! 😮

  • When he unscrewed it without thinking I actually pissed myself laughing. Proper cracked me up. Clint is the dogs bollocks. I loved how he was smiling as he was unscrewing it, blatantly thinking “I did it, I’m a genius” and then “OH SHIT ! What am I doing!?” 😂😂😂😂 So funny I’m still crying

  • you can dump monobath out of the side of the canister. the rinse film inside canister

  • just use a dark room and a safe light

  • This has resparked my love for film photography

  • So r they both deaf? And what type of hearing aids are they wearing?

  • I've shot, developed and printed silver based photography for more than 30 years. The first time you pull a film out of the tank and see the image on the film, there as if by magic is a special thing.

  • More of corridor analog videos.

  • K but Nick? Literally the cutest. I love his face

  • Taking me back to high school photography. I always enjoyed being in the darkroom, something about the low red light and slightly warm and humid air always felt so calming. Maybe it was the chemical fumes. Or maybe it was the memories.

  • I get that they are trying to make a video here, but why would they not make some kind of dark room? I mean, they spent the first few minutes of the video talking about how precious their memories are, and then they make this video where they look like two bumbling idiots. I mean, I have to assume some of it is done for effect; that they are playing parodies of themselves. However, if I were developing film for the first time and there were real stakes you had better believe I"d be doing this we a roll of throw-away photos I don't care about first. This I had to stop watching part-way through because this made me so anxious.

  • Im thinking of getting a film camera myself but I'm not super knowledgeable in the ways of film cameras, does any kind soul know what's a good film camera to get?

  • Corridor Analog

  • Aw man. I remember having to develop pictures in high school. So much fun. The red room was my 2nd home 🥺

  • You should do a reaction video of your wives/girlfriends watching these LVcd videos, including this one for Valentine's Day.

  • Photos that look old make me feel sad

  • And now I’m smiling

  • Use a bottle opener instead of pliers to open the film canister. It allows you to pull the film directly out and more easily load it into the reel. I can't once remember having to cut the film, but then again it's been over twenty years. Great job though learning a new process.

  • Did you guys enlarge any prints or just scan the negatives? 🤔

  • I was so stupid for my first three rolls of film. I was mixing from powders, and I inhaled some bleach dust (whoops!). And I did C-41 color. Maintaining the perfect temperature within 0.25 degrees is not easy! But the result is so fun!

  • Idk why but memories sound a bit Harry Potter

  • I wonder how they are transferred to paper/print....

  • im an ametuer photographer and would love to shoot pictures and learn from you both one day

  • Also if you pressed the release, you could have wound it back into the canister.

  • I love that they are doing this in Los Angeles.... Where I send my film from the East coast to be developed. There are like at least 5 places that do that there.

  • This was oddly emotional

  • im learning this at school :3

  • So overly dramatic about the whole process haha. Developing both B/W and color film at home is super easy.

  • What headphones are those i always see clint using in many of the videos. I believe they are bone conduction headphones. Can you tell use what brands do u guys use. As i have seen many corridor digital guys using the same type of headphones.

  • this is awesome. just finished my first roll of film and i cant wait to see how the pictures turn out when i get them developed!

  • Thanks for teaching me about Monobath- I teach B&W darkroom photo to junior high kids and will give that a try! BTW, the head of the film is called the leader, and I got a laugh out f you both loading your film onto the reels...I teach my students to do this is under a minute. kids really struggle to open their canisters too and a good old fashioned bottle opener is the best!!!😍👍📷

  • Why does Nick look like a short person in the thumbnail....

    • Because Clint is looking at up the film to see the light going through it, and Nick is slouched down a bit, to see the film too. Also, the camera is a little high up, and facing down a bit.

  • I wouldn't have fed the chemicals straight through the sous vide circulator like that. I would have put the chemicals in a container and then partially submerged that container into a water bath at the right temp. Would have taken longer to bring them up to the right temp but it wouldn't have put toxic chemicals through your circulator.

  • What camera and lenses do these guys have?

  • Kids nowadays.

  • thanks to this video i now know why digital cameras are superior

  • This is like corridor digital breaking bad

  • I saw this video and immediately watched a bunch of other videos on film photography. I borrowed my dad's old camera and just got the scans back today for my first two rolls of memories 👌👌👌 Really wanna try developing it on my own soon!

  • What's the beautiful music at the end of the video?

  • What was that drum niko had

  • Please do more analogue photography videos

  • I took photography class and we had to learn how to do this and it was insanely stressful in that bag!

  • This just reminds me of doing this in art college just a few years ago and I loved shooting film and still shoot film, i agree with Nick i was always scared if i missed up a step when putting my film in that roll. Also after you swish the chemicals around in the tank with your film you should have waited to take the light blocker lid out with no light hitting your film and you should have taken the film row out by the sink first!

  • 16:48 wren :(

  • The Perfect Camera Rig (2020)

  • What was niko playing on

  • "we saved every memory from Cyan mountain!"

  • Why not create a dark room seems insane to try to do this in a bag blindly

  • Should have eaten avocado toast just to troll boomer memes lol 😂

  • This reminded me of my friend and I trying to bake for the first time at the age of 6 for the girls we liked in school. This was early 2000s so we did not have phones and we used a lot of books and manuals which we did not even understand!

  • i still don't know how it goes from that tape to a paper with actual colors...Little tip: Would love to see a part 2 for it this i sort of know the process(already seen someone on a dark room doing this with UV light if i'm not mistaken..)

  • Maybe you should have worn gloves while handling colourd chemicals

  • Loved watching this. Had flashbacks to photography school, lol (minus having the extra steps they cut out by using the monobath).

  • Just fyi "sous-vide " is the technique and means "under vacuum". The device you bought is just a circulator.

  • this brought me back to my photography classes in high school, dang

  • Just hearing Clint say memories and not pictures made me tear up a bit. You don’t know how long I didn’t cry until I heard memories, which made me realize that compared to everything in the universe, we’re just a speck.

  • As someone who did photography in highschool, doing the dark-bag work is super easy. Just make sure you put all the tools in there before you open that film!!!

  • I'm currently waiting on a black and white roll I took about 7 years ago to be developed. I just hope my memories are able to be recovered because the roll has been in various temperatures over the years.

  • You are having fun so in my opinion you are doing everything right, Film is like magic and should be appreciated as such. I love this medium for that, nice work 👍

  • They did surgery on a camera

  • what's the montage music? it sounds like goodtimeswithscar's superfast build mode music

  • Anyone know what the song is that start at 16:40 ?

  • Me to her: 5:19

  • I used to work in a photo lab so our chemicals were heated by machine and developed using a gear and roller system so I can't give you much help for the developing part, but if you want a nice hint for getting the film out of the canisters we used a plain old church key can & bottle opener, you would hook the little part on the flat end under the lip of the bottom of the film canister and pry it right off, push the plastic spool through the top out the bottom and you could unwind the film and cut it off. Way easier than using pliers. Good luck, have fun! Experiment if you can - we used to take slide film and run it through our C41 Chemicals, and vice versa, just to see what would happen. Just don't experiment with important ones until you know what will happen!

  • Nice.

  • Please review a hindi movie named " Jaani Dushman " , aparichit and malayalam movie Pulimurugan

  • Viva La Dirt League and Corridor Digital collaboration should definitely be a thing in the next couple years for sure! Whether it be a Node video, Corridor Crew, Corridor, Corridor Cast, or on the Guillotine Channel.

  • This makes me want to use that film camera I have in my closet

  • Hey everyone, please can you review 'X-men: Dark Phoenix'

  • Hi, i am trying to get into film photography. I have figured out what camera i would like. Right now i am wondering what film roll i should get that isn't to expensive or too cheap. 35mm negative black and white. Can anybody help?

    • The classic standard cameras are like a Canon AE-1 or like a Pentax K1000 but there are sooooo many amazing cameras. If you’re starting out: Ilford HP5 is one of the best inexpensive black and white films out there. In my opinion Kodak Tri-X 400 is the holy grail of BW films. If you want color film Portra 400 is always the best beginning stock. However a cheaper stock like Kodak Ultramax 400 or Kodak ColorPlus 200 is also great choice.

  • Nick: "you hear that noise?" *Niko playing under them*

  • Wouldn't it be easier to make a dark room so you could see with a red light ?

    • The red light is for printing black and white prints. It will destroy film as readily as daylight will.

  • I had this same camera(nikkormat ft) and also had problem with jammed film inside.I was trying to take too much exposures because film wasn't cliped correctly and exposures count was incorrectly. After testing how each mounting result in numbers of exposures it was fine. I also was fighting with unexposed film in camera end it was SO STRESSFULL but in the end it was fine. To processing of film other people mentioned most of whats important but i can add that washing should be done before taking out the film because it helps regularly distributes water inside and also in the long run is better to wach them few times and store them in special sleeves to reduce discolouration. One tip is also when You drying out film is better to do this in small room wich no dust (bathroom) it helps film to dry clan and don't attract any dust to itself. There are also some sprays to make it hydrophobic but some people below wite abut this so i won't :D

  • I would love a video on what film cameras to buy!

  • 16:47 I really like that pic of Wren.

  • コ リ ドー ヂ ジ タ ル Ko Ri Do Di Gi Ta Ru Corridor Digital

  • Something I’m wondering is how did niko learn to play the ufo?

  • Anyone else notice how the faucet fell off when nick went to rinse the negatives?? 😂😂

  • Why did you use a bag, couldn't you make a dark room?

  • 16:53 you could show that picture to them, And they might think it was actually taken during WW2 or something

  • In my elementary school, I went to an after school film/media studies club, and we did some cool stuff. Taking black and white photos, developing them, shooting and editing the school news "channel" plus making short movies , studying media history, stuff like that. Now I wish I had kept up with that interest. Oh well.

  • I processed my own B&W and colour film for over 30 years (until I switched to digital), so I can offer some tips. When you're washing your films after processing, leave them in clean running water for at least 30 minutes. You can get a gadget called a Paterson Force Film Washer, basically a hose that plugs into the hole in the top of your dev tank and connects to a kitchen tap. It lets you flush the film with clean running water while it's still in the tank. The more thoroughly you wash the chemicals out, the longer the negatives will last without fading or discolouration. For the final rinse, add a couple of drops of pure non-ionic liquid detergent (e.g. Ilfotol) to the water to act as a wetting agent, and then when you hang them to dry, use a clean soft-bladed film squeegee to remove as much water as possible. That way you can minimise drying marks on the film. Hang the films in a dust-free environment to dry, preferably a purpose-built drying cabinet. Dust will stick to wet film and adhere to the surface, and once stuck it's impossible to remove. It's important to attach a weighed clip to the bottom of the film too, or it will curl up as it dries. Don't handle the processed film until it's completely dry. Wet film stock is really soft and scratches very easily. Once they're completely dry, store your negs in acid-free archival sleeves, and keep them somewhere cool and dark. I've recently been scanning a lot of my old negatives, and even 40-year-old ones are still mostly good.

  • Is nick deaf?

  • This was really wonderful to watch :)

  • This is the literal same equipment I used in my photo classes in highschool, we had a darkroom and did stuff way easier by just pouring things in and letting a pitcher sit in warm water to get the temp right, just get like a plastic tub and let the chemicals sit in there to get the temp, also those agitator containers should had a little thing on the top that you stick down in the middle where the chemicals go into and then it turns the actual film inside to agitate it instead of putting whatever it was over the whole top and tilting it

  • Used to love shooting and developing my film when I was at college and managed to develop my first roll at home this year! Such a satisfying process

  • heating chemicals is a proper time to wear a mask.

  • I've developed my own black and whites and it's SO GODDAMN SATISFYING to hold the negatives in your hands once you've rinsed the last drop of developer off. You almost want to frame the negatives instead of scanning them for positives.

  • I repeat, check out one punch man live action by Re-Anime

  • okay ive never developed photos before so this might be a really dumb idea but like couldn't they use night vision goggles and go into a room with no windows and block out all the light in that room

  • Niko needs to make a hang drum channel
