ʻUluʻulu: The Henry Ku‘ualoha Giugni Moving Image Archive of Hawaiʻi at the University of Hawaiʻi–West Oʻahu is now accepting applications for the 2020 Roselani Media Preservation Internship, which offers a $4,000 stipend and valuable experience in a moving image archive.
ʻUluʻulu is Hawaiʻi’s official state archive for moving images dedicated to the care, preservation, and digitization of film and videotape related to the history and culture of Hawaiʻi. Its holdings include more than 45,000 videotapes and motion picture film reels about Hawaiʻi from the 1920s – 2000s. Collection focus is on unique, primary source material not widely available or commercially distributed.
The purpose of the Roselani Media Preservation Internship, which was established by ʻUluʻulu in cooperation with the Hawaiʻi Community Foundation, is to give a student of merit who is committed to the preservation of our media history – which covers the political, cultural and historical landscape of these islands – the opportunity to acquire practical experience in a moving image archive.
Also, this year, ‘Ulu‘ulu is a host site for the Association of Moving Image Archivists’ (AMIA) Diversity and Inclusion Fellowship Program. AMIA Fellows may complete their internship at ‘Ulu‘ulu if accepted into both programs.
Intern activities at ʻUluʻulu may include opportunities in:
• Cataloguing using media asset management software
• Processing and creating inventories of archival audiovisual materials
• Preservation activities, including cleaning and re-housing of audiovisual materials, and environmental monitoring
• Digitization of videotapes, documents, and photographs
• Social media information management
The Roselani Internship is six to eight consecutive weeks from May to September; intern must complete 200 hours. Applications are due March 15. The selection will be made by April 15. Click here for more information.
