Agfacolor

by ZYNAB
A chronology of all the titles shot in Agfacolor from 1932 onwards. This is far from being a complete list, I’m sure there are more titles to discover, especially from countries other than Germany. Unlike Process 3 Technicolor’s sharp, vibrant pigments, Agfacolor gaves films a soft and rich pastel look, which I like a lot. It’s closer to the old Process 2 Technicolor in look, though with a much wider range than Process 2’s red and green. from wikipedia: “Agfacolor was the name of a series of color film products made by Agfa of Germany.

from wikipedia:

“Agfacolor was the name of a series of color film products made by Agfa of Germany. The first Agfacolor, introduced in 1932, was a film-based version of their Agfa-Farbenplatte (Agfa color plate), a ‘screen plate’ product similar to the French Autochrome. In late 1936 Agfa introduced Agfacolor Neu (New Agfacolor), a pioneering color film of the general type still in use today. Agfacolor Neu, called simply Agfacolor after its predecessor had been retired, was the German response to Technicolor and Kodachrome. Like Kodachrome, introduced by Eastman Kodak in 1935, the new Agfacolor film was an “integral tripack” with three differently color-sensitized emulsion layers. Unlike Kodachrome, the corresponding color-forming dye couplers were made integral with each layer during manufacture, greatly simplifying the processing of the film."
