Science and Technology Council Collection

Science and Technology Council Program: ‘Fantastic Reality: The Magic and Mystery of Movie Matte Painting,’ 2007.

The Science and Technology Council was created by the Academy’s Board of Governors in 2003 in response to growing developments in digital motion picture technology. The Council serves as a primary forum to address current technological issues facing the film industry. Additionally, the Council functions to chronicle and preserve the history of motion picture science and technology. Through this work, the Science and Technology Council has produced programs and events to teach industry professionals and the general public about the ways technology serves the art of motion pictures. Programs within this collection feature topics including “Film Formats Through the 21st Century,” “Milestones of Motion Picture Sound,” “Costume Design in the Digital Age,” and “The Arrival of Solid State Lighting,” as well as interviews with members of the Science and Technology Council. Since 2005, the Archive has housed over 600 items in the Science and Technology Council collection, a majority of which document the educational events and programs spearheaded by the Science and Technology Council.
