Film. No Compromise., the multi-media campaign from Kodak Entertainment Imaging, was the key message at the event. "This compelling program not only focuses on the creative benefits of shooting on film but also tackles the digital hype head on by attacking the myth that digital capture is always, "cheaper, faster and good enough," said Klaus-Georg Hafner, Marketing Communications manager for Kodak's Entertainment Imaing in the German, Austrian, Swiss, and Nordic Cluster.
