Fresh new batch from the 50's

The films just brought in, waiting to be opened.While technically these 16mm B&W films may be old, to us they are new and exciting.

This week, we've received and addition to our archive collection, 4 - 100 Foot 16mm B&W films, recorded in the early to mid 1950's by a (then) young student who was trying out some interesting and fancy technology he got a hold of, and after many years of sitting and collecting dust, he has agreed to let us take care and preserve these precious films.

What's fascinating about 16mm is that they can be transferred to HD, think about it, a video taken around sixty years ago, being viewed in HD.

When I saw this, I paused for a second - Wow!As with all our materials, the first thing we do when receiving something new, we inspect its physical condition, then we assign and tag to it a serial number which corresponds to a record in our database in which all its information -technical, as well as the recorded content- is entered.
