Join Rob Taylor as he journeys Australia in search of a nostalgic breed of film collectors known as VIDEO HOARDERS, takes a look at their insane collections and basks in the glory of VHS!
VIDEO HOARDERS is a twelve episode web-series that follows series creator & host Rob Taylor as he journeys around Australia tracking down likeminded video tape collectors affectionately dubbed ‘tapeheads’ to check out their collections and “search the wild for that next rare find”. Shot on a combination of high-definition digital and antiquated tape equipment, VIDEO HOARDERS has its own distinct style that while playing to the aesthetic of the program’s content, it maintains a slick presentation.
