Archive Based Productions - Vol. 4, Issue 8, Fall 2015

In 1927, when Esfir Schub released her commissioned film The fall of the Romanov Dynasty to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the October Revolution, she hardly knew that her extensive use of film footage and newsreels of the event would mark the invention of a new ‘genre’: the archive based production or compilation genre. Television has adopted this genre, but audiovisual archives have fuelled a wide array of programmes and genres beyond compilation productions.

Government, business, broadcast and film archives as well as amateur collections and home videos are commonly used to spark memories and re-enact events from the past in various contexts. They are made widely accessible and re-used in traditional broadcast productions or given a second life in digital environments through online circulation.

This issue of VIEW invites scholars, archivists, producers and other practitioners to consider, highlight and elaborate on the use and re-use of moving image archives in media productions (for cinema, television, web, etc.). Contributions are welcome in the form of (short) articles or video essays.

Proposals are invited to explore (but not limited to) the following topics and questions:

- Has the digital environment created a paradigm shift in the use of audiovisual archival materials?
- The authenticity of audiovisual archives in the digital environment;
- In what ways can audiovisual archives transform our relationship to the past? What is the role of archives in helping us reconnect with or understand the past? How do national/organisational archive policies impact or limit the histories that are informed by these archives?
- The audio-visual archive as proof, testimony or document of reality, as shared heritage or collective memory;
- Case studies using moving images as historical sources;
- The use of archives in creative productions;
- Ahistoricism in the use of audiovisual archival materials;
- Found footage in moving image productions;
- Compilation programmes studied through issues of representation, distribution, production, reception, etc;
- Various formats and subgenres of compilation programmes: biographies, historical productions, art forms, etc;
- Comparative studies of the compilation genre;
- The search for identity in audiovisual archive collections;
- The use of national audiovisual collections in a European or international context.
