Jeffrey Selznick School of Film Preservation at the George Eastman House in Rochester, New York, Reeves has worked on film collections at the National Archives, Library of Congress, and the Archives of Appalachia.
Reeves has worked on preserving silent films made during Hollywood’s first golden era in the 1920s, regional home movies, military and government film, educational and industrial film, television newsfilm, lost regional television shows, and all types of recorded audio media.
