Home Movie Day | North Carolina State Archives | Screen: Special Showings | Indy Week
This is a past event.
When: Sat., Oct. 18, 1-4 p.m. 2014
Price: free
When my brother and I were kids, our grandfather liked to feed us cotton candy and soda until we were basically insane and then shoot Camcorder videos of us going nuts. He called it "The Brian and Andrew Show," the title superimposed on each video in white block type. I still have some of them, the wavy VHS tracking now embalmed in .mov files. These are the kinds of cinematic relics you'll discover when Home Movie Day, held annually at venues around the world, comes to the N.C. State Archives. You can bring in your own home movies in any archaic format—8mm, 16mm, Super8, VHS and more—to share them with strangers and play Home Movie Day bingo for prizes. All the necessary equipment will be on hand, as will film archivists to run it and give preservation lessons. You can even get a free transfer courtesy of A/V Geeks Transfer Services, digitally capturing your celluloid memories before they crumble to dust. And who knows, maybe you'll even catch a classic episode of "The Brian and Andrew Show." 1–4 p.m., free, 109 E. Jones St., 919-247-7752, www.avgeeks.com/hmd.html. —Brian Howe
