Inventory of production materials
Series III. Production records 1995-1998 (bulk 1996-1997) 8.9 linear feet (11 boxes and 1 enclosure)
Materials comprise the electronic and paper records generated during the production of the video Art Works: Behind the Scenes at the Getty. Records document the work completed by the production companies OneSuch Films and Mountainair Films, Inc. and also the work completed by the film editing company, Two Headed Monster. Documentation includes contracts, releases, logs of dailies, camera reports, lab reports, inventories, story boards, scripts, presentation transparencies, correspondence, and background information on projects and locations.
The records date from 1995 to 1998 and appear to be a compilation of files maintained by different people; some of the content overlaps.
Arrangement
Material was largely left in its original order.
The following types of records are permanently closed: records containing personal information, records that compromise security or operations, legal communications, legal work product, and records related to donors. The J. Paul Getty Trust reserves the right to restrict access to any records held by the Institutional Archives.
Records that are closed/restricted are noted at the folder level and have been physically separated from the rest of the collection.
