The Preservation of Moving Image Material
Museum Development East Midlands in partnership with Crich Tramway Village is pleased to offer two 1-day courses in the care and preservation of Cine Film, or moving image materials.
Please note: The days are designed to either work as stand alone workshops, or you can sign up to attend both days. If you would like to attend both days please make sure you book one of each ticket.
This two day course is designed for museums who hold small amounts of moving image material and who don’t know where to start with its care and preservation.
Day 1: Skills to develop different film medias
On Wednesday 18th of October we will cover what moving image material is made from and how to identify the base material, how to identify the different formats of cinefilm and how to identify the common types of video recordings and digital materials. There will be a discussion of obsolescence, how to mitigate obsolescence and copying for preservation and access.
Day 2: Handling and use of AD strips
On Thursday 19th of October we will examine the storage environment, storage materials, housekeeping and handling that are recommended for moving image materials. We will discuss the degradation process known as ‘vinegar syndrome’ and look at how to monitor this degradation process using AD strips.
We anticipate high demand for these courses and can only accept one delegate from each museum. We will also be prioritising museums whom are accredited or working towards accreditation. For more information about eligibility please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
