Fox Movietone News Digitization Project, Phase I

Digitizing approximately 14,000 newsreels from the Fox Movietone News Collection from 1919 to 1934, and making these recordings freely available on the Web.

This grant to University of South Carolina (USC) Libraries Moving Image Research Collections (MIRC) will fund Phase One of the two-part Fox Movietone Digitization Project. Phase One is a two-year project that aims to vastly increase access to the Fox Movietone News Collection, by making approximately 15,000 of the estimated 23,000 total titles in the collection available as streaming videos on the free web with robust descriptive metadata. It also aims to test the preservation functions of the MIRC-DVR, via ingest of high resolution digital surrogates for 1,000 titles in the Fox Movietone Collection.
