Digital moviemaking has grown significantly in the roughly five years since the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences released its initial Digital Dilemma report in 2007. That report looked at the challenges of preserving digital content. The Academy’s Science and Technology Council is preparing to issue Digital Dilemma 2: Perspectives From Independent Filmmakers, Documentarians And Nonprofit Audiovisual Archives report later this week, with this one focusing on Hollywood’s indie communities. Most of the surveyed filmmakers haven’t given much thought to preservation of their finished work; many arrange for storage but few store film or digital masters using reliable archival preservation practices. As digital formats evolve, old ones can become obsolete or deteriorate and in worst case scenarios functionally inaccessible — lost. Read the Executive Summary of DD2 here.
