What Is Movie Paper?
The documents issued with a film make up the Movie Paper or Film Accessories:
- Movie Posters
- Press/Campaign Books
- Heralds/Trade Ads
- Promotional material issued by a studio with the release of film
What's So Urgent?
The threat to movie paper cannot be understated. The international cultural history recorded in the words and images of movie paper is disappearing.
Collectors, archivists, and hobbyists acknowledge that time takes it toll. Paper disintegrates as it ages. Sunlight, fire and water are lethal enemies. Another danger is the destruction of movie paper by people who are unaware of its significance.
A repository and research center is necessary.
