About this event

Tuesday, August 3, 2021 7:00 - 8:30 pm | $75

Archival Research 101 guides students down pathways for using third-party media in films. This course highlights how to avoid copyright and licensing pitfalls. Students will learn from pre-production to final delivery the basics of how to research, order, and clear archival photographs, films, and videos. We will move beyond Google and seek material at archives like the National Archives, Library of Congress, public libraries, museums, and universities. The course will cover media formats, copyright, licensing, budgeting, public domain materials, distributor requirements, and media management. Students will take away a list of go-to sources for historic film research and contemporary media licensing.

About the instructor: Sarah Katz

Sarah Katz has worked in television and multimedia as a Producer, Associate Producer, and Researcher for more than nineteen years. She has cleared rights for more than three dozen televised documentaries including the recently released series The Machines That Built America on History as well as museum exhibits like Ain’t Nothing Like the Real Thing for the Smithsonian, and The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. She has been commended by her colleagues for her thorough understanding of the field. Sarah has been called the most experienced Archival Producer he’s met by some of Jon Stewart’s producers and sought after by Oscar Nominated filmmakers for her research experience.

Workshop Note: Because of social distancing needs, this workshop will be held online via Zoom, but building community is one of Docs In Progress's guiding principles. So in order to allow time to meet fellow students, the Zoom room will open 15 minutes early and remain open after the class ends each night. It's the best we can do for now until we can all come together in person.
