The conversation was free-flowing with occasional questions and interventions from the ADAPT crew.</div><div><br></div><div>This video is part of a series in which award-winning director of photography Brian Tufano demonstrates the ways in which he used 16mm film cameras early in his career.</div><div><br></div><div>ADAPT (2013-8) is a European Research Council project at Royal Holloway University of London. The project studies the history of technologies in television, focussing on their everyday use in production activities.</div><div><br></div><div>ADAPT examines what technologies were adopted and why; how they worked; and how people worked with them. As well as publishing written accounts, the project carries out 'simulations' that reunite retired equipment with the people who used to use it.</div><div><br></div><div>Participants in these simulations explain how each machine worked and how different machines worked together as an 'array'; how they adapted the machines; and how they worked together as teams within the overall production process.</div><div><br></div><div>www.adaptTVhistory.org.uk</div><div><br></div><div>https://doi.org/10.17637/rh.c.3925603.v1</div>
