Lynne Sachs (1961-) is a filmmaker from Tennesee. She creates films, videos, web projects,
Organized into three series: I. Recordings; II. Shot lists; III. Release forms.
Lynne Sachs was contacted by Library Director Dr. Larry Wilt and Chief Curator Tom
Beck regarding the donation of her original source material used to create, "Investigation
of a Flame," (2001) a documentary film about the Catonsville Nine. The Library agreed
to cover the costs of digitization by DiJiFi; the digital files were sent to UMBC
in Fall 2013 (MSS 2013-03). The available release forms and a digital file copy of
the documentary were sent by Lynne Sachs in December 2013 (MSS 2013-05).
The collection was processed in Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 by Archivist Lindsey Loeper
with assistance from student assistant Alex Geiger. The files were transferred to
the secure server and reviewed for any irregularities. Original file names were captured
and then the files were renamed using a standard format. The shot lists and recordings
that the Library has permission to display will be added to CONTENTdm at a later date.
