17 January 2018

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 9 – Matthew Gibb & Simon Miller
Rob visits Matthew Gibb and his unbelievable man cave in Adelaide, South Australia. We take a look at the Betamax format, laser disc and some of the first ever video cassette players which make up only a small part of this amazing collection. Tapes on display include EVIL DEAD (Filmways), ONE DARK NIGHT (Showcase), THE NIGHT STALKER / THE NIGHT STRANGLER (Star Video) and THE WRAITH (Palace Home Entertainment). In the bumper we feature Sydney-based uber-collector Simon Miller and his cupboard of doom!
