The Beautiful Process of Making DVDs

Illustration for article titled The Beautiful Process of Making DVDs

I didn't think that the process of making DVDs could be pretty, but this collection of photos proved me wrong. Take a look.


From the tiny sparkling pieces of polycarbonate which are turned into a hot mess so that they can be shaped into DVDs to the rows and rows of cooling discs—there really is a sort of beauty involved in the process of creating, packaging, and transporting new DVDS.

The photos you see here were taken at an optical medium factory in Kazakhstan and if you follow the links below, you can see even more of them—complete with detailed descriptions of which step of the DVD making process each represents. [ via English Russia]
