Maintaining an archive of more than 10,000 of anything can be overwhelming. Our ultimate goal is to get these films back into the minds of public, so that they can be appreciated for generations to come. This takes a lot of time and money. Most of the A/V Geeks projects (DVDs, shows, stock footage, transferring films) are set up to support the archive and the archivist (me) and to pay down debt. You can help a couple of different ways.
Donate money. We aren’t a non-profit (too much paperwork at this point), so donations to AV Geeks are not tax deductible, but any size of donation will help the cause. We will spend the money on acquiring new films, paying for transfer equipment, paying for shelves, supplies, etc. Help support the A/V Geeks cause via this Paypal button.
Buy something from us. Buying a DVD (or 2 or 3, etc) helps pay the bills. Here’s the catalog
Buy something for us. Here’s a wishlist of supplies we use at the archive
Donate time. Even if you aren’t nearby, we can use your time. Particularly, watching particular films online and writing descriptive lists of scenes in the films. Contact me for more info.
Donate stuff. We are always looking for more 16mm films – specifically educational and industrial films. Here’s a list of films that we are looking for. We are also looking for supplies – such as 16mm plastic cans, archival cloth gloves, equipment, etc. Contact me for more info.
