What happens to film if KODAK goes away?

When was the last time you shot a project on film?  Probably been awhile.  Well it looks like the Film Legend is in it’s final days.  Geez, they are trying to make a living off of printers.  What happened?  I know they’ve been in trouble for some time and with technology going the way of the “Digital” it was only a matter of time.

In case you want to read a bit about what is happening with Kodak:

Did you know that Kodak was working in Digital Video since the 70’s? An excerpt from “History of the Digital Camera”

Since the mid-1970s, Kodak has invented several solid-state image sensors that “converted light to digital pictures” for professional and home consumer use. In 1986, Kodak scientists invented the world’s first megapixel sensor, capable of recording 1.4 million pixels that could produce a 5×7-inch digital photo-quality print. In 1987, Kodak released seven products for recording, storing, manipulating, transmitting and printing electronic still video images. In 1990, Kodak developed the Photo CD system and proposed “the first worldwide standard for defining color in the digital environment of computers and computer peripherals.” In 1991, Kodak released the first professional digital camera system (DCS), aimed at photojournalists. It was a Nikon F-3 camera equipped by Kodak with a 1.3 megapixel sensor.
