click whoosh: polaroid documentary

A couple weeks ago a Polaroid documentary titled Click Whoosh was posted by a group of women filmmakers and youth media educators who all work or have worked for Reel Grrls (a filmmaking program for teenage girls in Seattle). The team put together a 7 minute historical documentary on the Polaroid camera with celebrating the art that is sadly fading for some. The women submitted for the first time ever in 2008 to the International Documentary Challenge ...they won the grand prize. This year they entered once again and won best editing. Both documentaries are absolutely wonderful and worth the time to watch.

  4. Ida: It is for sure and thank you!

    Anna: I was tickled to come across the documentary and I am glad you liked it.

    Christina: It is getting harder to obtain film even though they are slowly starting to reproduce it. I have my fingers crossed it will become more affordable with time. It's good to hear you are enjoying the photos though!
