NFSA Film Preservation Handbook

If you have an interest in films and film preservation, I would recommend a visit to the Australian National Film Preservation website to view the Film Preservation Handbook. This amazing resourse gives a in-depth knowledge of a wide range of preservation subjects including film construction, identification, storage and damage.

Below we list the chapter headings, directly from the NFSA site. Please follow the links to see the entire handbook.

 

 

Client Comments

quote1-40The preview disc you sent looks stunning--over the weekend, I put it up on a large screen at UCSC with a Christie projector just to check and Moumen Smihi was thrilled. We showed his Si Moh that you did and it also looked great.

quote1-40I premiered many scenes from your recent 35mm transfers in the new Lost Landscapes of San Francisco, and they were a HUGE hit. I am very much looking forward to doing more work with you. Thanks so much!
Rick Prelinger, The Prelinger Archivesquote2-40

quote1-40I just had to let you know how happy my client was with the quality of the 8mm film transfer you did for him. At 6000 ft of film (25 years of his families' life) there was a lot to deal with. Your technical expertise was very helpful in choosing the right digital format both for the subsequent edit we went through, and in hitting my clients budget and quality concerns. Feel free to use me as a reference at anytime. The whole experience was professional and very easy. Once again thank you.
