DVD Technical Production of a film on the history of cinema.
The association Documentaire sur Grand Ecran asked me to manufacture DVDs for their DVD collection “Special Collections”. Documentary films for demanding directors, for which I work in detail the preparation of master movies, encoding quality and monitoring of ergonomics.
The film, “Documentary cinema, fragments of history”, was directed by Jean-Louis Comolli.
A crossing of documentary films of the Lumière brothers to Guy Debord. By tapping into the images that make up three quarters of a century, Jean-Louis Comolli has chosen films that have gone through the past fifty years, in response to the command : find “his” history of cinema and particularly of documentary film. Clever visual score orchestrated by a voice-over (his) fingering the themes that are dear to him - instead of the viewer, the fiction in the documentary, the impact of technological change on the artistic... - the the film weaves between the extracts unpredictable links.
