I'm an NYU graduate student in the Moving Image Archiving and Preservation program. I'm currently working on a research project about the ways that production companies, particularly small, independent companies, are using solid-state-recorded media, especially Panasonic P2, focusing on archival workflows. I'm looking for production and post-production people at small companies (documentary, fiction, news, etc.) who are dealing with these sorts of issues and who would be willing to talk about their concerns, solutions, suggestions, etc.
If you might be interested in speaking to me, please send me an email at jcv242 (at) nyu (dot) edu. These conversations wouldn't take much time and could be conducted by phone or email, or in person for anyone in the New York area.
