Sebastian del Castillo

American Genre Film Archive
Sebastian del Castillo is the Head of Film Restoration for the American Genre Film Archive (AGFA) in Austin, Texas. Sebastian has a BS degree from The University of Texas at Austin in Radio, Television, and Film specializing in film production. Sebastian got his start working as a grip, gaffer, and cinematographer on film productions and then began working for several non-profit film organizations such as The Cinemaker Co-op in Austin and The Northwest Film Forum in Seattle as Technical Director. In 2001 Sebastian began working as a Negative Cutter for Deluxe where he acquired skills in post-production and film handling. In 2010 Sebastian joined forces with The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema where he worked as a projectionist for 10 years - projecting 16mm, 35mm, 70mm, and digital. While working for The Alamo Drafthouse Sebastian began volunteering for AGFA before being hired on as Head Archivist. As AGFA expanded beyond being a genre film archive and active lending library to include theatrical distribution and being a home video label, Sebastian switched gears from working in the physical archive to doing film scanning, digital restoration, color grading, DCP creation, digital asset management, and mastering.
