NYC ARCHIVAL INTERNS
(Post-secondary Film/Arts or Archival Students in the New York Area)
FANGORIA is looking to digitize our back-catalogue of magazines, date range 1979-2013, and to make this archive accessible on our website, Fangoria.com.
The materials would consist of 34 years’ worth of print magazines, photographs, 35mm slides, and written correspondence from directors, actors, writers, FX artists, all currently housed in our office in the historic 42nd Street neighborhood of Manhattan. The volume of material would probably equal 15-20 boxes.
As part of this ongoing project, students will create a system for organizing and digitizing the materials, and will start the physical digitization process, working towards our aim of having the project completed by the end of of 2013. Our expectation is to get a student (or students) to commit to the project one day a week, or for a minimum of 84 hours total as suits the student(s)’ schedule.
While essentially an archival project open to students in any arts program, those interested in genre film would get the most out of it, as they have access to not only one of the genre’s most important archives, but also promotional materials and free movie passes that get sent to the office on a daily basis. Students interested in writing for the magazine may also find opportunities with the project, as they could gain professional writing experience in tandem with archival duties.
If interested, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
