The "Self-Preservation Guide for Film/Video Makers" is a chapter of
"Results You Can't Refuse: Celebrating 30 Years of BB Optics" a book
published by Anthology Film Archives. The Self-preservation guide is
part of our attempt at a grass roots preservation effort and
addresses exactly the sentiment expressed by Robert Schaller. It
doesn't give all the answers but it does give resources and takes the
approach that its better to do what you can - even only a little -
than to do nothing. We've posted a pdf of the chapter for free
download at:

The book is available for $10 at Anthology or online at:

Here's some other good resources:

Independent Media Arts Preservation

National Film Preservation Foundation

The Home Film Preservation Guide

National Film and Sound Archive, Commonwealth of Australia

Lux, UK - Keep Moving Images

Brodsky and Treadway

Electronic Arts Intermix
