Japan Institute of Moving Image Uses Cintel Film Scanner

PostThu Apr 20, 2017 4:20 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced the Japan Institute of the Moving Image has installed and is using Blackmagic Cintel Film Scanner for archiving student films that have been shot at the college over the past four decades.

Japan Institute of the Moving Image history began with the legendary film maker Shohei Imamura’s film school, which was launched in 1975. The college is one of the few film schools that still have classes using film cameras, and there have been more than 300 films over the years that their students have completed using film.

“We now deliver in digital, even shooting with a film camera in a class, but we used to create 10 to 20 student films a year using film media. We strongly felt we needed to do data archiving to preserve those films that we have created. Also, the telecine we had used was broken and could not be repaired, so we thought rather than purchasing another telecine, we wanted a film scanner. However film scanners on the market were not something we could afford,” said Daisuke Wakabayashi, the instructor of the school.
