Ascent Media Group Authors Inaugural ?Home Movie Day DVD

(August 13, 2007)
DMN Newswire--2007-8-13--Ascent Media Group recently lent its support to the Center for Home Movies, providing DVD authoring services pro bono for the amateur film preservation groups inaugural DVD release, Living Room Cinema: Films from Home Movie Day Vol. 1. The DVD, scheduled for release August 11th, includes a selection of amateur films screened at CHMs Home Movie Day events over the past four years. 


?We have developed a great rapport with the Center for Home Movies over the course of this important project, stated Janice Simpson, Director of Global Preservation Programs, Ascent Media Group. ?Our support of this project is another example of Ascent Medias commitment to the archival community, as well as our shared vision for the preservation of, and access to, our moving image history.


Ascent Medias Digital Media team collaborated with film archivist and CHM co-founder, Dwight Swanson, on the project. ?The Center for Home Movies worked with a variety of sponsors, but Ascent Medias support was particularly appreciated, stated Swanson. ?Their work on the encoding, menu design and authoring has resulted in a high quality product that is hopefully just the beginning of a DVD series promoting Home Move Day and moving image preservation.


Home Movie Day is a worldwide celebration of amateur films, filmmaking and related events that provides opportunities for individuals and families to share their own home movies with their community. It is a chance to discover the importance of these films and how to ensure their permanent preservation. The 5th Annual Home Movie Day is scheduled for August 11th, 2007 and will be held at local venues worldwide.


?Theres no such thing as a bad home movie. These mini-underground opuses are revealing, scary, joyous, always flawed, filled with accidental art and shout out from attics and closets all over the world to be seen again.  Home Movie Day is an orgy of self-discovery, a chance for family memories to suddenly become show business. If youve got one, whip it out and show it now, stated filmmaker John Waters.
