The Reel Thing: Register Early Now
Early bird registration ends Monday July 25 2011 for The Reel Thing, the Association of Moving Image’s annual showcase of the latest technologies in audiovisual restoration and preservation. This year’s event takes place August 18-20 at the Linwood Dunn Theatre in Hollywood, California.
Each year at the event, laboratory technicians, archivists, new media technologists, and preservationists discuss their work and latest techniques. This year’s program includes an opening-night reception and premiere screening of a “4K” restoration of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea; a “shootout” featuring new test footage from Panavision and CinemaScope; case studies of restorations of Marcel Carné’s The Children of Paradise, Ernst Lubitsch’s silent The Loves of Pharoah, and George Méliès’s 1902 Le Voyage dans la Lune; a session on preservation scanning techniques; among many other topics.
