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.

EPISODE 11  – Simon Harcourt & Charlie Glennerster
Exploring the uncharted reaches of Thornbury, deep in the heart of Melbourne’s inner north, Rob stumbles across the insane VHS collection of Simon ‘Simondo’ Harcourt. Moderator of the Facebook group ‘Australian Vintage Video’, Simon’s collection is filled with tapes both rare and bizarre. Films on display include BEING DIFFERENT (Seven Keys), PARAMEDICS (Peacock Films),  BEN (Virgin), SWEET AND SAVAGE (Roadshow) and a rare uncut preview tape of THE TOXIC AVENGER (Premiere Home Entertainment). In the bumper we feature the tapes of UK collector-extraordinaire Charlie Glennerster including his global assemblage of THE WRAITH VHS!
