Scope and Content of Collection

The records date from 1995-1998 and primarily comprise audiovisual and production materials generated by the Getty film project Art Works: Behind the Scenes at the Getty, a J. Paul Getty Trust film that was completed in 1997. Materials include negatives (35mm film reels), various formats of audio and video tapes, contracts, daily logs, storyboards, and other printed and electronic documentation on the project. Art Works is a 28-minute promotional film created to highlight the activities of the five programs of the Trust that were active during the time leading up to the opening of the Getty Center in 1997: Getty Conservation Institute, Getty Grant Program, Getty Information Institute, Getty Education Institute, and Museum. The film also spotlights the newly-opened Getty Center facility. The working title of the film was "Getty Film Project."

Excerpts of some of the interviews with Getty employees and select footage of the Getty facilities may also have been used to produce a video on the "Getty Center Opening."
