The books data has its origins in a training programme called FILM
which was written by members of the Gamma Group with funding from
the EU fund Force. The committee comprised senior film archivists
and technicians in charge of film conservation departments or working
film laboratories within national film archives, together with technicians
from commercial laboratories which specialise in archival film conservation
and who do not work for national and local archives. The final group
consisted of many of the most experienced individuals in their fields.
Separate funding was made available to allow the original group
to present a more complete publication, under the EC Caleidoscope
fund. Special sections on early coloured films, natural colour films
and digital restoration have been added to the original contant,
and the result is 'Restoration of Motion Picture Film'.
