Film's best friends are the Film Makers, who not only made CineStill 120 possible, but are now making it beautiful.

Below is an excerpt from an interview with "Film Maker" Alex Medick by Chris Gampat at The Phoblographer "On Using CineStill 800T Film in the 120 Format" with some of the first images shared from our CineStill 800T 120 Alpha Film.

“I think most portraits capture more than just a nose and pair of eyeballs.” says photographer Alex Medick. “They show us an emotional/stylized reality, centering around specific people.”

Alex is a photographer based in Philly and is one of the few lucky enough to have gotten his hands on the film after the pre-sales that CineStill had. With his Pentax 67 in hand, he’s able to create some incredible compositions that not only balance technical skills but artistic skills. His portraits are subtle yet telling studies of his subjects and his ability to make use of spaces on the fly is something that many other photographers don’t have.

Phoblographer: What attracts you to the Pentax 67 and what made you want to use CineStill 800T for this shoot? Is it the high ISO abilities or the general look of the film?

Alex: The Pentax 67 is straight up one of the sexiest cameras I’ve ever seen. It’s a pleasure to hold, and the 6×7 negatives come out beautiful If I hold up my end of the work. I just got my box full of CineStill 120 last week and couldn’t wait to shoot it. Having only shot the 35mm version once, and never having touched the 120 I wasn’t quite sure how it was going to turn out in the daylight, but I’m pretty happy with it! I overexposed to around ISO 320 and was thrilled with the look I got. I can’t wait to shoot more of it, and see how it holds up under low light.
