Craig Dingwall is visiting the USA in May as part of the NFSA’s George Eastman House exchange program. Craig is a telecine operator (the process of transferring motion picture film into video form) and colourist in the NFSA preservation team.
The Paley Center’s permanent media collection contains nearly 150,000 television and radio programs and advertisements, available in both New York and Los Angeles. The online database offers synopses, along with production credits for the programs. I had the pleasure of meeting Rebecca Paller, one of the main curators. She was really enthused to meet someone from the NFSA, as she knows of our reputation, and gave me a full tour of the centre.
