Film Restoration – An obstinate attempt to save the history of our movies

obstinate attempt to save the history of our movies

Preserving our history is an attempt that only the passionate lovers of the art family can understand and fathom its seriousness. Everything has an expiry date, even a good joke. And being humans, we tend to cling onto our memories. All the movie reels are made up of nitrate negatives that deteriorate over time. Once a movie has been filmed and edited, the reels are stored inside canisters and are stored away forever. And the nitrate in the negatives causes the film roll to fade and turn to dust eventually. The preservation techniques and services are exactly what we provide.

Several movie studios like Walt Disney, for instance, have taken up the task of maintaining these reels using several techniques like digitizing, pigment library to keep the color codes of the  cells and replacing them from time to time with matching color codes. It wasn’t until the late 80s that the UNESCO recognized films as an integral part of our world’s cultural heritage.

Though there are multiple varieties of film reels being used the world over, almost all of these materials have proved to decompose over a short period regardless of how well we store or try to preserve them. Our techniques will sure enhance its life span and give our history a chance to survive and remain in our memories and physical presence over time.
