Fixafilm is a company with a mission. Educating the next generation about digital restoration and post-production is important to us. We’re guided by the principle that practical education is the best education.
Fixafilm has twice organised digital image restoration workshops, during which a group of cinema fans had the chance to learn step by step the basics of digital film restoration. The three-week workshops were free of charge, and interest exceeded our expectations. This project was particularly important because there are no schools teaching digital restoration. Unfortunately, the profession of restoration remains a niche one. So we were delighted to have a chance to share at least some of our knowledge.
Our other educational initiative is internships in Fixafilm as part of the Erasmus student programme. As part of this project we hosted a student from Turkey for a half-year position in our DI department.
