How do we preserve the films of today, for tomorrow?

Sep 25 2017

On August 25th Phil Rhodes wrote a fascinating piece published via Red Shark News about using film as a preservation format rather than constantly trying to transfer your material into digital! Read it here.

It is a really interesting read and goes to show what an amazing invention film was, and how it is a format that shouldn’t be abandoned just yet!

With so much material being backed up to LTO and the problem with the lack of backwards compatibility there is a strong argument to look for another answer — could film provide the answer?

As is often the case there is no simple solution but it makes a nice change to see a debate not solely focussed on which digital format to use.
