3 Things Make Our Research Different
1. Colleges and institutes that do documentation and research are shackled into researching only material that they have in hand in their collections. Plus they also have the care and maintainance of the materials in their collections giving them tremendous overhead with little money or time left for actual research. So if there is any material that is important or pertinent to the research that is NOT in their possession ..... too bad... (plus they don't share information between each other - I know that's hard to believe.. but true)
2. We work in reverse of standard academic research. Instead of filling out information on a particular film titles and then gradually filling in already KNOWN information, we place a blanket base of titles and then gather the information directly off the old posters and accessories (which in a lot of cases are the only remaining historical documents from the original film release). This allows us to both document that item for preservation purposes AND then compile the information from it and feed it into our specially designed database (MoviePosterDataBase.com). This creates literally THOUSANDS of sortable variations and creates specialized information that YOU WON'T FIND ANYWHERE ELSE.
3. Because we're sponsored by some of the largest auction houses, dealers, collectors and institutions around the world, it gives us access to unlimited amounts of information without the financial burden and time consumption of actually handling and preserving the material. We are only limited by our manpower and time.
You get full access to our 3 major research websites: LearnAboutMoviePosters.com; MoviePosterDataBase.com & GlobalCinemaResearch.org. plus our specialty sites.

* Identifying and dating Stamps and Stickers for verifying originals
