Up-dated technology  is saving the films of Andy Warhol.

His film work will be digitized – and made available for public viewing.

It’s a project of New York’s  Museum of Modern Art, the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh – and the visual effects firm MPC.

Warhol was born in Pittsburgh.

Between 1963 and 1972 the renowned American artist created some five hundred  16 mm films.

Almost 1,000 rolls of film will be scanned into high-resolution images – in a process that’ll take several years to complete.

The films  have been housed at  MOMA since the early 1990’s.

Warhol died in 1987 at age 58.

The artist worked in various media including painting, printmaking, photography and film.
