Hello, I have been on this wonderful list serve for several years now and
this will be my first post. I would like to say that I have learned a great
deal from the many bright and creative minds that regularly post on the tig.
I am an A/V conservator at the National Library and Archives of Canada with
25 years service. I work in the Video Lab where we do preservation
treatment and copying of obsolete Video and film collections. A year ago,
we retired a Bosch FDL60 (the second of two machines we drove into the
ground) and replaced it with a Thomson Shadow. We are using a Da Vinci 2k
corrector and controller with the VS4 noise reducer. For the past 20 years
I have been the key person doing telecine. Working in the Archival field
there is not much in the way of film that I have not handled treated and
Presently, my job description (which is 15yrs. old) is being reviewed and
updated. Working in an A/V Archival institution makes my position here as a
colourists unique. Consequently, it is impossible to find a colourist job
description or similar description to draw from (a job description writer I
am not). I am hoping that I could be given advice as to where I may find
information pertaining to the role, responsibility, knowledge and skills
required of a senior colourists. Is there such a thing as a colourist's Job
Many Thanks in advance.
