Quote from: TC on Jan 08, 2022, 09:02:56 AMWhat is a "workprint collection"?Quote from: oduodu on Jan 07, 2022, 12:23:30 PMjust out of curiosity what normally happens to work print s after a movie is finished?Maybe you mean release prints? The release print is owned by the distributor (generally, one of the big studios) and it gets returned to them at the end of its run. When it gets so dirty and scratched that it's unsuited for further distribution it gets recycled as "track spacer". Track spacer is waste film used to fill up the space between the mag-film segments of sound recording put together by film editors and sound editors when making up the reels of soundtrack. I am, of course, referring to the old days of old fashioned (i.e. non-digital) filmmaking.OTOH maybe you really are referring to workprint. Workprint is also owned by the commissioning studio. At the end of post-production all the out-takes and trims are boxed up and sent into storage in a temperature and humidity controlled vault, alongside all the original camera negative, both neg-matched and not (and other film materials too.) Eventually, if the studio wants to save on storage costs, rather than allow workprint out-takes and trims to fall into the hands of pirates, it will be securely destroyed.TC
