This project is a demonstration of digital film scan editing techniques that can be freely used by any individual or organization, free from licensing costs and subscription fees. In addition to being a tutorial-style guide, the project features two films from the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum that will used as examples for different edits to be applied, compared, and adjusted by readers following along with their own film scans. The goal of this project is not only to detail the process of creating restored digital versions of these films, but to make archivists aware of the possibilities once they have set up an editing environment that can be accurately documented and archived. Throughout the project, there is importance placed on storing the original scan, final result, steps in-between, and the exact script that was used to create the output in order to document and preserve the lineage of changes.
