1. Tanisha speaks about her educational experience at the Moving Image Archiving and Preservation Program (MIAP) in New York University's Department of Cinema Studies, Tisch School of the Arts, and the impact on her professional life.

    'I am in conversations with my MIAP friends, we all have compared notes, and we certainly know that in our experience, we walk into institutions and we are really the only people there that have this unique educational background. And we are relied on exclusively to provide aid for these materials...I am incredibly grateful for this formal training, and know for a fact that it is incredibly valuable to the institutions that we serve...'

  2. Kara speaks about her educational experience at the Moving Image Archiving and Preservation Program (MIAP) in New York University's Department of Cinema Studies, Tisch School of the Arts, and the impact on her professional life.

    'The curriculum has evolved. When I was in the program, we didn’t have as much emphasis on digital…Born-digital barely existed, [but] now we do a lot more work on managing those collections. I feel like I’ve been able to be part of that shift, especially with the [Preserving Digital Public Television Project]. MIAP has had to adapt to the changes...the program has done a great job of having engaged professors who can change their curriculum as needed...'

  4. Yvonne speaks about her educational experience at the Moving Image Archiving and Preservation Program (MIAP) in New York University's Department of Cinema Studies, Tisch School of the Arts, and the impact on her professional life.

    'One of the really great experiences I had in MIAP was working with a set of nitrate 35mm films...We uncovered these films in the garages of a couple of filmmakers, and we were able to go to Colorlab and learn about how the nitrate was decaying... We got to interview the filmmakers that were still alive and talk to them about their studios and films...I also went to the NJ Archives in Trenton and looked at old newspapers with ads showing the very reel I had in my hands from the 1930s…'

    'One of my stand out moments was [while I was on my summer internship at the University of South Carolina Moving Image Reseach Collections] where I worked with an extensive news collection. I learned a lot about film scanning and film inspection. I took that 10 weeks and turned it into a really nice thesis that I’m proud of. I took knowledge of digital scanning workflows to places like Anthology [Film Archives]...'
