Good morning Joris, good morning everybody,

as a mashup movie maker, I can attest to the quality and interest of the Open
Images platform <http://openbeelden.nl/>.
We have no such tool in France and some of these archives are part of the Free
Movies Manifesto <https://vimeo.com/120227182>.

Thanks for that,

Julien Lahmi

> Hi everyone,
> Last Friday I posted a new blog on the Europeana site about the largest
> digitisation project the Netherlands has ever seen. Beelden voor de
> Toekomst (Images for the Future) was a 7 year project to digitise hours of
> audiovisual material and millions of photographs. In March, the closing
> event was held at the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision.
> In these 7 years some great work has been done. Loads of material was
> digitised and made available to the public. The great Open Images
> <http://openbeelden.nl/> platform is a direct outcome of this project.
> Also a number of smaller and quick projects where batches of content were
> opened up resulted in great succes.
> But of course not everything went super smooth. In particular (surprise)
> copyright turned out to be big blocker, but also the project struggled
> greatly with making money out of digitised heritage.
> The final report of the project is only on Dutch (right Johan?), so I have
> tried to summarise the main outcomes and lessons learned in this blogpost:
> http://pro.europeana.eu/blogpost/images-for-the-future-lessons-learned-from-7-years-of-digitisati
> I think anybody who is thinking about or working on a digitisation project
> should have a look at Images for the Future to learn from.
> Cheers,
> Joris
