A local Chicago filmmaker emailed this to me (below), but I have no idea
(not my area of expertise). Can anyone provide information on this? She
does not specify when the films date from, but it could be as early as the
1970's. On list or off is fine.
-- Patrick Friel Program Director Chicago Filmmakers 5243 N. Clark St. Chicago, IL 60640 (773) 293-1447 phone I have a film "archiving" question. I have been taking an inventory (and making a list) off ALL my films and prints. I have noticed that with a couple of my reversal films (black and white reversal original), at the beginning of the picture, a few frames are beginning to yellow and solarize. The films do not have a vinegar smell. They don't seem to have any odd smell. What does this mean? What should I do? Can I stop it? (I've pulled these films and put them in zip-lock baggies for now, separated from the others). Please help. Feel free to send this e-mail to anyone whom you think would know/could help. Many thanks. __________________________________________________________________ For info on FrameWorks, contact Pip Chodorov at <email suppressed>.
