Archaeology of Moving Image Media Workshop


Please join us at the Academy's Pickford Center of Motion Picture Study on Saturday, May 21.

This free workshop will feature presentations and demonstrations that will introduce students and professional archivists/librarians to the basics of analogue and digital moving image media technology, with a special emphasis on film. The first part of the workshop will focus on the challenges of managing large and complex film collections with a case study presentation on the Academy Film Archive’s Packard Humanities Institute Collection of film advertisements, which will conclude with an opportunity to practice film repairs. Following the lunch break, the focus will be on identification and preservation of video tape format, including a discussion on tape deterioration, best storage practices, and digitization policies. This will lead into a brief section on digital assets, focusing on the differences between moving image digital assets and non-moving image digital assets.

Spaces are limited. Please RSVP by May 18th to
