Los Angeles, CA 90036

Join ARMA-GLA for our first meeting of the 2018-19 year! We will hear from an expert, Andrea Kalas, on digital preservation of moving images and learn how she plans for longevity and access. Even though Andrea preserves movies and television, the knowledge and experience she will share with us can be used to create programs for other digital media as well. 

Digital Preservation of Moving Images

What does it mean to digitally preserve motion pictures and television? It's a question that Andrea Kalas has thought about at length both in her current role at Paramount Pictures and throughout her career as a moving image archivist. How do you take the ideals of honoring the art and craft of these moving image forms, the principles of providing duty of care to one's organization, and the constantly changing technical standards in order to come up with a long-term plan for longevity and access? These are the questions Andrea will discuss and illustrate.
