Ross Lipman is an independent filmmaker and archivist. Formerly Senior Film Restorationist at the UCLA Film & Television Archive. His many restorations include Charles Burnett’s Killer of Sheep, Kent Mackenzie’s The Exiles, the Academy Award-winning documentary The Times of Harvey Milk, and works by Charlie Chaplin, Orson Welles, Shirley Clarke, Kenneth Anger, Barbara Loden, Robert Altman, and John Cassavetes. He was a 2008 recipient of Anthology Film Archives’ Preservation Honors, and is a three-time winner of the National Society of Film Critics’ Heritage Award. His essays on film history, technology, and aesthetics have been published in numerous academic books and journals. Lipman’s filmmaking works have screened internationally and been collected by museums and institutions including the Oberhausen Kurzfilm Archive, Budapest’s Balazs Bela Studios, Munich’s Sammlung Goetz, The Academy Film Archive, Anthology Film Archives, and Northeast Historic Film. Through his parallel disciplines lies a fascination with the temporality and transience of human endeavor. His most recent film restorations are Thom Andersen’s Eadweard Muybridge, Zoopraxographer and (in collaboration with the Conner Family Trust), Crossroads. Notfilm is Ross Lipman and Milestone Film’s first feature production.
