From WLS-TV (Chicago):
The Media Burn Independent Video Archive recently received a grant of nearly $500,000 from the Council on Library Resources to kickstart a new national initiative.
“It’s a partnership with six different institutions, and together we are going to be digitizing more than 1,000 video tapes,” said executive director Sara Chapman.
Media Burn was founded around 20 years ago as one of the first ever online video archives. Since their founding, they’ve digitized 8,000 hours of analog video. The collection highlights independent documentaries and videos that focus on social and political causes.
