Phoenix Finish at the Vietnam Army Studio
Björn Lantz, our Restoration Specialist, has just returned from three days with the Vietnam Army Studio.
Working at their temporary barracks in Hanoi, Björn trained eight of the Vietnam Army Studio’s operators in using their new Phoenix Finish system for film restoration.
They will be putting this training to good use, as they gear up to undertake the restoration of their film archive. This expansive archive features films and documentaries, dating back to the Vietnam War, including American newsreels and local footage, as well as more recent footage shot with digital cameras. Following the restoration process, Vietnam Army Studio plan to return the restored footage to film.
