My job was as an Inspector/Printer. This entailed the removal of Nitric base film (pre-1954) motion picture film, and preparing it for copying both image and audio tracks. This type of film had multiple issues with shrink, stretch, warping and scratches. Lots of defects to be overcome before it could be printed. It was shown by me early on I didnt have a lot of talent for this kind of detailed repair work, so I became by default the film processing technician and was responsible for the systems processing of both negative and positive image processing on safety acetate film. After 5 years of pushing about 100k ft of film per day I decided I had had enough and wandered of to the USAF in search of something productive to do with my life. I succeeded.
