August 18, 2018 | 09:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Adrian Wood | Restoration Asia
The realization of the value of film to create historical record is not a recent phenomena, it was first raised over 120 years ago, less than 3 years after the creation of cinema itself. This workshop will look at the history of film archiving and how successful it has been in protecting and preserving the creative and historical record in the world and in ASEAN countries. It will ask why so much of cinema’s past is lost when its significance was realised so soon. Through an examination of the changing technology of film production from the 1890s to the 2010s it will look at the lessons learnt and the mistakes made in those times. As filmmakers it is important to understand how you can work with film archives both domestically and internationally to access content as well as to preserving your creative works. Addressing the commercial pitfalls of technical obsolescence suggestions will be given whereby your creativity can be preserved for generations to come.
