SOME INTERESTING DEFENSE DEPARTMENT FILMS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST PART I - INTRODUCTION AND EXPLANATION by Michael Ravnitzky, mikerav@ix.netcom.com

Recently I received a large partial inventory list of thousands of Defense Department motion picture films and videotapes. I have selected a tiny sampling of these films that seem interesting for some reason or other, or have remained classified for years despite evidence of some public interest in their contents. This is just a personal selection; please keep that in mind. There are thousands and thousands other films out there waiting to be viewed.

The source of these film titles and catalogue numbers are the film transfer lists and proposed transfer inventories held by the National Archives and DVIC.

Forthcoming lists of films in various subject areas will contain the addresses at the bottom rather than at the top.

Most of these films are either restricted in distribution or are still marked as classified, either confidential or secret, as noted. However, most of these films have not been reviewed for declassification or public release in many years, or even decades. You can request a copy of any of these films by writing to the following two addresses and requesting a copy of the film under the Freedom of Information Act. All of these films will be available and under the authority of one or both of the following two addresses.

The first address is the Department of Defense [DoD] FOIA Office. Note: in your request letter to DoD, you may wish to mention that these films are or were under the responsibility of the Defense Visual Information Center, DVIC, but that FOIA requests to DVIC are processed by the DoD FOIA Office.

WARNING: The DoD FOIA Office does not like to process requests for audio-visual materials such as motion picture films, because they are much more troublesome than requests for paper records. Nor do they have a very good track record in regard to processing such requests. Just keep careful track of your requests, and send in an inquiry if an excessive amount of time has gone by. You may need to send an appeal letter if too much time goes by.

The second address is the National Archives office that has accessioned some of these films--it is not entirely clear which films were accessioned and which remain at DoD. One or both of these offices have all of these films.

It occurs to me that the NARA facility at College Park is closer to me than the National Air and Space Museum....

Self-Service Copying of Motion Picture Film

Copying motion picture film requires a Betacam or camcorder for shooting the image directly from the screen of the playback machine. A tripod may be used. The motion picture playback machines project an image of a relatively low light level and there will be a flicker movement in the duplicated copy.

Sound, if available, may be recorded from the speaker by your camera's built-in microphone or from an auxiliary microphone (not supplied by the Archives) placed in front of the speaker.

Hmm. Got me a camcorder. Filming the screen would be the ghetto approach, but might lead to servicable recordings.

Going to NASA HQ archives tomorrow (they allow scanners, huzzah). I had considered going to the College Park National Archives facility afterwards, or on Saturday, but then I saw this:

Pull Times for Files:
Pull times for records on Monday-Tuesday are: 10:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 2:30 p.m.

On Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday there is an additional pull at 3:30 p.m.

Note: No records are retrieved from the stacks on Saturday or in the evening.


BAH. :mad:

I'll probably still wander by, but likely just to do bibliographic research: dig up a whole mess of references to have pulled at some later date. Probably won't go back on Saturday, since I won't be able to actually get anything (so it appears); plus it looks like a huricane is due to hit the area Saturday afternoon.
