The AnthroCine is a specialized film scanner, designed to scan old and damaged archived film stock at high resolution and low cost.

Launched: Aug 20, 2012
Funding ends: Sep 29, 2012

Film archives have more than just newsreels: movies, television, sports, culture, and every aspect human life were recorded... and most of it has never been digitized, and especially not at high resolutions. The AnthroCine motion picture film scanner will ensure that the world’s film heritage lives on.
Help Advanced Film Capture Save the World’s Film Heritage

There is an urgent need to digitize archived motion picture film worldwide; every day untold amounts of footage becomes irreparably damaged. For over 100 years humanity has recorded every aspect of its existence on motion picture film for the benefit of future generations. Decades of entertainment, arts, politics, sports and industry that were captured on motion picture film for posterity lie rotting – and with each day more is lost forever.

We believe that Advanced Film Capture’s AnthroCine archival film digitizer will create a unique opportunity for the world’s motion picture film heritage to finally make it into the digital realm, preserving the captured images for posterity and allowing them to be distributed within modern content ecosystems.

Why is this Happening?

There are companies and equipment that convert motion picture film to the digital realm everyday, providing what is know as a “digital intermediate” for contemporary motion picture productions. The high visibility and profit margin of modern motion picture productions has driven existing film digitizing efforts (commonly referred to as “film scanning”) almost exclusively towards newly shot film footage.

The majority of motion picture film archives simply lack the funding necessary to digitize their collection using the equipment currently available. Costs can be more than 50 cents a frame for the digitizing alone, well beyond the reach of most archives; at that price, an hour of footage would cost well over $40,000 just to scan (not counting film preparation and consumables). The efficiencies of the AnthroCine allow AFC to reduce the cost of film digitizing by up to 90% of what is currently being charged for a 4k or 6k digital deliverable. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/advanc...em?ref=category
