CineFiles Project Coordinator (2008-2010)
CineFiles is a digital image database of materials selected from the collection of the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive’s Library and Film Study Center. It is an ever-expanding collection, currently numbering 50,000 documents (including press kits, film maker’s texts and correspondence, excerpts from thousands of out-of-print publications, exhibitor manuals and advertising campaigns, film reviews, interviews, and other documents) related to films, filmmakers and film history. The resource is designed for use by students, scholars and educators (in film studies, the humanities and social sciences) and lovers of films all over the world.
As Project Coordinator (2008-2010), I managed the web redesign effort for CineFiles including usability testing and focus groups with educators; worked with classroom instructors to conduct workshops and develop in-school curriculum using CineFiles; and created resources for the Portal for Educators. Some sample guides are included below:
• Birth of a Nation
• Control Room/Tanner ’88
• Bowling for Columbine/Elephant
