Spring 2006, Manuel Santini, Internship at FOX Movietone News, New York, NY

At FOX Movietone News, the focus is primarily on access – licensing the collection to a variety of users. Manuel Santini became one of the staff who worked to locate the video or films – using multiple databases – and created screeners to enable clients to select the clips they needed. These tasks and the subsequent delivery of the footage to the client gave Santini valuable experience with common professional and industrial video formats. He found the logistical process and the size of the collection and disbursement of the collection very interesting, along with exposure to film–to–tape transfer through a visit to the vendor, Magno Sound and Video.
