This Short-Film Documentary recaps the The Antique Automobile Club of America Library & Research Center’s story of building and modifying a 16mm film scanner from scratch. The film scanner takes 16mm films and digitizes them to a more accessible format to be viewed on the internet. It was crowdfunded and originally built to the specs of the Kinograph DIY Film Scanner. Since the original build, many improvements and modifications have been put in place including adding a step motor, new backlight, film gates, shutter delays, and other items to help get a more stable and clear image.
