Kodak never once sponsored StudentFilmmakers Magazine or workshops. We had schools from high schools to universities requesting over 12,000 magazines from all over the USA and around the World. hundreds of testimonials from students and professors, more than of any educational magazine in the industry. We have had professors order the magazines for use in their classes and we get requests to reprint content every year from instructors and we did many workshops with many ASC members who used film and loved film. We need hand have needed sponsors to print the magazines and pay for space and overhead to produce low cost workshops. We asked them every year multiple times to support contests, workshops and the magazines and newsletters for over 10 years. Ten Years of asking many times to help print Magazines with an advertisement. The people at Kodak said I was promoting digital filmmaking and that they didn't like that and not once did they do anything with us! That is just wrong, right?
