Reasons and expectations from participating in FRAME
Rita Marques When I applied to FRAME, I first wanted to update my knowledge in audiovisual archive management, and then to exchange with audiovisual experts about the new concepts for the future of restoration and use of digital archives contents. Particularly, I expected to learn about best practices to integrate the analogue archive organization in a digital environment.
Positive impacts of FRAME on your work and career paths
Rita Marques FRAME training contributed to develop my actions to increase the access and contacts between the archives and their audiences: how to deliver content adapted to the public's expectations; how to give sense to the content, etc. In line with these access challenges, I used the inputs of FRAME training to highlight the different opportunities the digitization of audiovisual archive has brought for contents management and use.
In a more general perspective, FRAME was an opportunity to reflect about the audiovisual archive work, as the training course gave an excellent overview about the change of position to the archival content manager. It shows its essential role in the creation and production of new contents and information.
What I learned from FRAME training is still very updated until now! The courses told us that the concept of archive changing in the timeline, and that technologies as to be introduced and adapted to our professional practices.
So, thank you very much all the expert speakers that I have the privilege to hear, the FRAME organization team for their dedication and attention, and also the members of FIAT/IFTA, FRAME’s partner, for sharing the knowledge and giving support to preserve the audiovisual archives at risk!
Professional projects supported by the participation in FRAME
Rita Marques To be part of a FRAME course has a special meaning to me. At this time I was archive manager in a private television in Brazil, TV Globo, taking part of a professional group working together to present vision of the future of the audiovisual archives to this company.
More particularly, I was working for the implementation of a more efficient archiving process, by gathering all the content that TV Globo produced into the same database. To do that, I must review all the documentation process, but this deals also with physical processing, intellectual management, communication and promotion of contents and information.
I have presented this project to my company's council in 2014; and it was integrated into the company’s action plan in 2016. Thus after participating in FRAME in 2015, I could reuse and adapt some FRAME training inputs to my company reality in order to successfully implement this project.
The presentations I have seen in FRAME were very enlightened, they fit together in the doubts that I had. During one week, we had an overview about the most important steps to organize and construct a reference archive in our digital era. FRAME Training gave me a guide to organize the day by day working and what I must do to have a success with my project's implementation.
Today, I continue to work for the audiovisual memory preservation and access: I have my own company and give consultancy services to audiovisual archive department in public television and other institutions.
