A Visit To CinemaLab

10 03 2009

A few weeks ago I went over to CinemaLab to visit with Robert David, motion picture film preservationist extraordinaire, about our pending NFPF Basic Film Preservation grant. I took along a box full of 16mm reels, 1926-1936, depicting first ascents in the Canadian Rockies, which film preservation specialist Snowden Becker had wound on new cores and placed in new canisters way back in August.

Robert was gracious enough to show me around their enormous space, and I fell in love with all the machines. I do not know film production, but I certainly enjoyed looking at all the gears and reels and lights and gadgets. You can enjoy them in a small slideshow, if you like.
