Mitchell Factory Video Tour - Industry on Parade

Feel free to discuss any topic related to the Mitchell Camera. Both 35 mm and 16 mm models are welcomed here. Also consider posting topics of other major motion picture cameras that you feel are important to the development of the Mitchell Camera.

Update: You may have noticed that we have returned to just one category as opposed to dividing the forum into 7 different areas. Apparently, it was an unpopular change and returning to the old format will allow posters to find their submissions more easily.

Hello fellow Mitchell enthusiasts. I have enjoyed learning about the Mitchell factory and so many members have added great research on this topic that I did some of my own. In 1929, Michell ran a campaign in American Cinematographer to alert his potential customers that he was building his new factory.

A brand new factory = fast shipment on new orders.

Each month during the construction, Mitchell would include a full page ad with an update on the factory construction.

I have included them here for your enjoyment.

When they were completely done, they just announced the fact with this plain text ad. Seems odd with all the other nicely tinted pictures but here it is non the less!

35mmKing,

Do you have the date that they moved to their new factory? Also I am curious as to what your research involved? If you care to share.

Thanks for the pictures,

Mark
