Administrative Information

Preferred Citation

[Cite the item and series (as appropriate)], Art Works: Behind the Scenes at the Getty production materials, J. Paul Getty Trust. The Getty Research Institute (IA40013).

Acquisition note

The original accession 1998.IA.01 consisted entirely of audiovisual material (film and video) and was roughly 48 linear feet. In 2011 some of the materials from accession 1998.IA.08 was merged with accession 1998.IA.01 to reunite materials that clearly belonged together. Accession 1998.IA.08 was originally about 15 linear feet and contained all the documentation as well as audiovisual material created by the production company Two Headed Monster, Inc. All materials were originally transferred to Wim de Wit in Special Collections in 1998 by Evangeline "Vangie" Griego. Materials were transferred from Special Collections to the Institutional Archives once the Archives was established.

Processing note

This inventory was created by Simon Yu and Cyndi Shein in 2012. Material has been rehoused if endangered; very minimal processing has been performed. The description in this inventory was derived from film canisters/boxes, audiovisual tape labels, and inventories provided by the production companies. The presence of dates, running times, and film content is inconsistent; all known information has been included herein.

The computer disks described in Series III have been ingested but not transformed or processed.

Appraisal note

Two boxes of test shots were discarded because they were labeled "of no use to future work" by the creators. The tests were shot to check exposures and adjust camera and lens functions.
