VERY IMPORTANT

WE NEED TO FIND GOOD (OR BAD) 16MM PRINTS SO WE CAN TRY TO PRESERVE THEM. WE HAVE NO PRINTS OF SOME OF THOSE OLD NEWSREEL FILMS. IMPORTANT TO HAVE BEST PRINTS (EVEN VIDEO)OF THE FILMS FOR TRANSFER TO DIGITAL ETC. SO PEOPLE AND SCHOOLS CAN HAVE ACCESS TO THE HISTORY. ORGANIZERS STILL USE OUR FILMS AND TEACH HISTORY WITH THEM . AND WHERE ARE THE PRIMO PRINTS ARCHIVED ETC.

VERY IMPORTANT PLEASE LET US KNOW WHAT 16MM PRINTS YOU HAVE AND CAN WE BORROW THEM. Are they kept well or are they in your closet with a leaky ceiling ?

HOPEFULLY FOLKS WILL BRING THEIR OWN (HI-8, HD ETC.)cameras that can be used to film the film showings and gathering.footage that maybe used in larger work of history
