Making Videos

Conservation Reel is dependent upon conservators to produce content to share knowledge with colleagues, students, registrars, and collections care professionals . This section of of the website is dedicated to the education of potential contributors in the production of video.

Working with video today is all about letting go of perfection and professional production methods. We would like to remind you that video is accessible, inexpensive and easy to use in your practice. We have broken down the approaches we have gathered through experimenting in conservation labs across the country and created all kinds of documents to share the nuts and bolts of making a video. As you explore the pages in this section we hope to give you ideas and confidence in your ability to incorporate video into your practice as a conservator.
