What is the ARTchive?
The Watkins Student ARTchive is a collection of student work from across the curriculum: Film, Graphic Design, Interior Design, Fine Arts and Photography. While work from Graphic Design, Interior Design, Fine Arts and Photography is submitted by the professors, film students must submit a series of files to their professor and the library so that they may be archived as well as made accessible through the library catalog and the Watkins Film School YouTube Channel. These files are their deliverables and a requirement for their production requirements.
Access to these films will only be granted to those with a Watkins Email address, so this library of student films is secure and only available to members of the Watkins Community.
This guide will walk you through all of the steps towards submitting your films!!
Submitting Films in Three Phases
Submitting your Deliverables to your professor and the library is a little complex but we've broken it down into three phases:
1 and 2: You create your folder and files for archiving.
3 and 4. You submit compressed files to the Google Drive for access for your actors.
5. You submit this compressed file and a detailed submission form to the library for cataloging and access.
Library staff will put the information you provide in this form into the library catalog. This is how people may search and find your film: so don't skimp!

What is archiving? What is access?
According to What is. com,
An archive is a collection of computer files that have been packaged together for backup, to transport to some other location, for saving away from the computer so that more hard disk storage can be made available, or for some other purpose.
These are your uncompressed files, your sound files, etc.
What is the access copy?
According to the Society of American Archivists an access copy is 1. a reproduction of a document created for use by patrons, protecting the original from wear or theft; a use copy. - 2. A digital object (typically a graphic) that has been scaled down from a high-quality original to a lower-quality, smaller version, to facilitate delivery over low-bandwidth networks.
This will be the copy you will access through the library catalog and/or the Youtube channel. . . again and again.
