About this event

This workshop will discuss approaches to safeguard your own legacy as digital filmmakers. Do you know where your digital files are now? Do you know what the best copies are? What if someone wanted to use them in 30 years? We will talk about what archives can, and cannot do, for you, and how to prepare your files for someone else to take care of them. We'll talk about what the big Hollywood studios do, as well as some small affordable DIY actions you can take today. After giving you some tips and tricks, we'll leave a lot of room for questions, sharing stories among yourselves, troubleshooting and feedback on your own experience as filmmakers and "accidental archivists".
