Found Footage CapsuleJune 15, 2012
It really was an honor to have Nick Prueher, Co-founder and Host of the Found Footage Festival on the Space Capsule this week! Matt and I are both fans of not only their comedy show, but we respect his and co-host Joe Pickett’s part in collecting and restoring pop cultural artifacts from the home video era. There really is so much untapped entertainment on the shelves and in the bins of your local thrift stores, Goodwill, Salvation Army, antique stores, flea markets and garage sales.
A large part of the VHS adventure is the hunt for gems in the odd assortment of home movies, industrial films, corporate videos, training tapes, B-movies, strange experimental oddities and many other weird sub genres of video.
The conversations will go on, but for now if you really want to have a laugh… listen to tonight’s Space Capsule and check out the Found Footage Festival website and DVDs! Also, if you are chilling out this weekend around town, visit a garage sale or thrift store … you might find a tape to send to the Found Footage Festival!
