Interviews with Moving Image Archivists

A while ago, we at Moving Image Archive News interviewed some folks in the world of moving image archiving, preservation, and restoration about what they do in their jobs, how they got involved in the field, and the like.

Over the next few weeks, you can see what they said, here on the site.

If you know anyone who might be interested in working in the field, these clips should be informative and hopefully inspiring. Or, perhaps you already work in the field and are interested in finding out about other people in your line of work.

So, here goes. Today, to get things rolling, here are three people with varied roles in the moving image world.
