Academy Motion Picture Oral History Digital Archive - Planning Project

A strategic planning effort for and initial development of the Academy Motion Picture Oral History Digital Archive, a repository that would include more than one thousand oral history interviews with screen and radio actors, directors, writers, composers, cinematographers, editors, and other production staff, which have been collected from 1947 to the present.

To support the development of a comprehensive strategic plan to create the Academy Motion Picture Oral History Digital Archive, the first industry-wide collection of motion picture-related oral and visual histories. With interviews recorded in 1947 through the present, the Archive will bring together the oral and visual history collections of a founding consortium of the Academy, Art Directors Guild, Film Music Foundation, International Cinematographers Guild, Motion Picture Editors Guild, Screen Actors Guild Foundation, Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA), and Writers Guild Foundation.
