2012 Professional Development Sessions
Opening Session—“Recover, Restore, Respect: Reel Treasures in the Digital Age”
Two practitioners in the world of documentary film present individual perspectives on issues, processes, and successes in the transition from 16mm film to digital formats.
Dennis Doros, Co-owner of Milestone Film & Video
Shirley Clarke’s Portrait of Jason premiered in 1967 as one of the first great films of gay cinema and one of the finest documentaries of postwar America. It was a cinema vérité portrait of one Jason Holliday — an African-American hustler, cabaret performer and standup comic. In one filmed interview that lasted the entire night Jason revealed with humor, tears and much drama, a life completely unseen by audiences before. When Clarke died in 1997, the film and its reputation languished while the original film materials disappeared. Film archivist Dennis Doros will tell the story of Milestone’s search for the original film materials to PORTRAIT OF JASON. Thousands of papers in the Shirley Clarke collection were pored over month by month. Hundreds of phone calls and emails to labs, archives and shady individuals followed up each lead — often coming up with dead ends and frustration. It took an early morning revelation based on a mathematical equation before the best material was finally discovered — reels that were mislabeled and disregarded for decades. And even then, difficulties will be faced and overcome during the restoration of this film, Shirley Clarke’s masterpiece.
Dennis Doros, co-owner of Milestone Film & Video (www.milestonefilms.com), started his professional career at Kino International where he was responsible for restoring two classic silent films starring Gloria Swanson: Raoul Walsh’s Sadie Thompson and Erich von Stroheim’s Queen Kelly. He left Kino in 1990 to start Milestone with his wife and partner, Amy Heller. For twenty years, Milestone has been devoted to discovering and distributing films of enduring artistry. With Milestone, Doros has restored many films including Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack’s Chang, Orson Welles’ The Trial, Rolando Klein’s Chac: The Rain God, Gillo Pontecorvo’s La Grande Strada Azzura and Margot Benacerraf’s Araya. Milestone’s roster of discoveries include Mikhail Kalatozov’s I Am Cuba, Takeshi Kitano’s Hana-Bi, Hirokazu Kore-eda’s Maborosi, Charles Burnett’s Killer Of Sheep, Kent Mackenzie’s The Exiles, Lionel Rogosin’s On The Bowery and Shirley Clarke’s The Connection. Doros has supervised and produced over a hundred video releases as well as over fifty silent film scores ranging from solo pianist to full orchestra.
Doros is currently serving on the Board of Directors of the Association of Moving Image Archivists (www.amianet.org) and is the founder of the AMIA Press Office. He is also a consultant to Turner Classic Movies since 2005.
Trash or Treasure? Best Practices on Preserving and De-accessioning 16mm films
Maureen Tripp, Coordinator of Media Resources at Emerson College
Once a staple of education and entertainment, academic and public library 16mm film collections are now a medium that the digital age seems eager to consign to the trash. Libraries, under pressure to use space wisely, lacking equipment to project film properly, unsure of how and whether films can be transferred to other formats for preservation purposes, and operating in a “everything is on DVD or the Internet” atmosphere, are under increasing pressure to discard them. But some librarians, film scholars, and collectors continue their commitment to these films, which typically include educational films, early and silent films, documentaries, animation, experimental and avant-garde shorts, and historically significant artifacts. They realize that these materials represent a historic mix of film topics, style, and genres not always available in digital formats. Their content is in danger of being—or has already been—lost. Contrary to popular belief, not “everything” was re-released in later formats.
So what to do? In this workshop we’ll discuss some of the options. What can you transfer, how can you do it, and how can your institution afford it? What do you want to keep, and how can you make it accessible? Does it make sense for you to donate your 16mm materials, and if so, to what repository?
Maureen Tripp is the Coordinator of Media Resources at Emerson College’s Iwasaki Library. She oversees the campus media collection of over 15,000 titles in various visual and audio formats, including, of course, 16mm film. Maureen has been a member of the American Library Association’s Video Roundtable since 2000, and is currently a Notable Video for Adults juror. She is a long-time attendee (and fan!) of the National Media Market.
