Any info would be appreciated.
I've known people in the field. You'd probably have to go where the work is: UCLA in L.A., Eastman House in Rochester, NY, or Museum of Modern Art in New York. Or some foreign archives. Do you know French? I don't know how much hiring these places do, if any. You might have to get an internship first. Are you in school now?
The studios may have people working on getting prints ready for restoration before transferring to the format used to make DVDs from. That might be a good way to go, if you can get an in with a studio.
