I would suggest uncompressed .avi but someone may have a better suggestion.

Lossless codecs like Huffyuv or animation will give you smaller file sizes.

You could also print to miniDV tape. It might be your best option, because hard drives can crash. And DVDs can get unrecoverable errors after just a year (lots of factors here).

That's what I usually do as well, print the final project back to tape and store it.
