Duo finds weird and wild stuff on old VHS tapes
Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher started Found Footage Fest in 2004 to celebrate the offbeat, eccentric and downright weird stuff they'd been finding on old VHS tapes. (In the 1980s, everyone was making videos, and they weren't always well-made, nor did they always make sense.) The concept proved winning, and the pair has been taking Found Footage Fest on the road ever since. The latest incarnation, “Nerds,” stops at gateway Film Center on Thursday, June 14, with Pickett and Prueher telling stories and providing commentary in between clips.
