    Location: Wolfson Campus, 300 NE 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33132

    Located in a high-tech facility on the downtown Miami campus of Miami Dade College, the Lynn and Louis Wolfson II Florida Moving Image Archives is devoted to preserving film and video that records the history and culture of Florida – from bathing beauties of the 1920s to civil rights crusaders of the 1950s; from Cuban exiles of the 1960s to disco dancers of the 1970s; and continuing into the 1990s and 2000s. The Wolfson Archives’ preservation initiative includes presenting these and many other historic images via public programs and making them accessible to researchers for licensing and reuse.

    Job Summary

    To facilitate these activities, interns will work in all areas of our preservation process. From cataloging and describing content to preparing films and videotapes in many legacy formats for digitization, interns will handle original materials and learn best practice procedures for moving image preservation and digital stewardship. Because we are actively digitizing all of our collections, they will also learn how to operate digital film scanners for 8mm and 16mm films, as well as the “robot” for mass digitization of videotapes. In addition, interns will learn how to edit together clip reels via Adobe Premiere for footage requests. This unique hands-on opportunity will provide them with a well-rounded experience at a very busy and diverse moving image archives.
