Working Method: Digitising and Cataloguing Arthur Howes’ Mini DV Tapes

Film-Archive-Seminar and Discussion with Harry Chapman

Royal Anthropological Institute
50 Fitzroy Street, London W1T 5BT
(North-East Corner of Fitzroy Square, off Warren Street, next to the French Theatre Book shop)

A presentation by Harry Chapman on the work done so far in digitising and cataloguing the mini DV tapes of the filmmaker Arthur Howes (1951 – 2004), held by the Royal Anthropological Institute.

The seminar will seek to present the method adopted for indexing the footage with a view to discussing the relation between the footage and the completed films, in particular those shot on digital video (Oromo – Human Rights [1996], Nuba Conversations [1999], and Benjamin & His Brother (2003), as well as the work in progress Bacchanalias Bahianas 1 – 5 [2004]).

Organised by the Royal Anthropological Institute, Film Archive
