"In 1983, with pilot funding from the New York State Council on the Arts, Anthology Film Archives initiated a video preservation project. Its three objectives are to: 1.) identify and locate independent video-makers in the United States; 2.) borrow and then rerecord video works that are endangered by age, format obsolescence, etc.; 3.) preserve these re-recordings in the proper termerature/humidity conditions. As of this writing, August 1983, work is underway in all three areas. The next issue of "Video Texts" will present a report on the first year of this project's ooperation." Video Texts 1983.
