About AV Geeks

We've been rescuing old 16mm films from dumpsters and obscurity for nearly 20 years. We've amassed over 25,000 reels of film that we want to share with the world. We doing monthly screenings in NC, occasionally tour, make DVD compilations and put films online but it's just not enough. We've only seen around a third of our collection - that leaves over 18,000 films we've not watched or shared!

Recently, we did a Watch-a-thon where we watched 100 films in a 24 hour period and we streamed it all online. It was so successful we'd like to do a 2 hour streamcast every month. We'll pick a topic, pull some films, watch them and comment on them live. It'll be A/V Geeks founder, Skip Elsheimer, and maybe a guest watching and commenting on the films (not during the films - that would be rude!) after we watch them. We'll stream it live and then share the films we've digitized on Archive.org. We'll also put the streamed show on YouTube, Facebook, etc.

Also, with your help, we'll be digitizing more films from the collection that we've not seen - over 2500 films and counting!

Your pledges will help us with the expenses of doing all this - internet costs, acquiring new films, supplies to maintain the films and equipment, hard drives, snacks, aspirin, etc.
$150 - reached! per month
We'd like to digitize and share a bunch of films and we need a hard drive to hold all that data on our end. This will allow us to buy one.
