In a time when memories are put on 16mm film reels, all cataloged in a library, The Archivist who preserves the memories must pursue the Bandit who has stolen his, before they are destroyed.
Greg Buracker is a filmmaker local to both the New York City and Philadelphia areas and has recently graduated with a BFA in Filmmaking from Montclair State University, along with an award for Excellence in Filmmaking. He has written and directed three narrative short films, including his most recent project, The Archivist , as well as a short documentary The Time is Now which recently premiered at the All Sports Los Angeles Film Festival. Driven by his love of past and present cinema, Greg is always looking to tell a story that explores human emotion through new creative worlds.
What I wanted to bring to the screen was a creative situation, taking place in another world but with a simple human story behind it. Using film/celluloid is an authentic and genuine form of storytelling. I wanted to present to the audience the story of The Archivist with a very authentic feel, from the cinematography to the production design and costumes, to every facet of the production. The audience needs to feel that this world is real. The Archivist is a film that expresses my love for film/celluloid, for while we are progressing in this industry it means nothing if we forget where we come from. Film is still a tool for filmmaking, just like digital cameras are. It is not something that should be forgotten. This film is also a tribute to my father. Everyday after he passed I wished for a way to feel his presence again. All I had were the memories. Now Iíve created a world where memories are in a physical form, something that I wish that I had with the memories of my father.
