genre: date:

The collection consists of raw footage from all around Georgia from 1992-2003. Some of the footage was used in the Discover America series. Locations filmed include Atlanta, Savannah, St. Simons, Columbus, Dawsonville, Peachtree City and Valdosta.

The collection consists of elements for a program titled, Ben T. Epps: the Legacy of Georgia’s First Aviator, which was produced by the UGA Center for Continuing Education and William J. "Bill" Evelyn. VHS cassette of the full program is available at the Media Desk as VHS 3843.1.

The collection consists of videotaped entries to the Atlanta Film Festival, including their gay and lesbian festival entries (both documentaries and drama). There are also many animated titles by artists such as Aardman Animations and animator Bill Plympton. In addition, there are festival promotional films consisting of compilations of festival entries.

The collection consists of approximately 150 hours of footage that chronicles Savannah, Georgia, the surrounding area and some of the key people responsible for its preservation and prosperity. Most of the footage is b-roll, lots of aerial views of the coast and the city showing the canopy, industry, neighborhoods, etc. There are many hours of perfect light shots of all the districts and outlying areas.

This collection is made up of several different groups of film and videotape which have come to the Media Archives since 1995. As with many collections, not everything produced by the Georgia Center is in the Media Archives, but we hold a broad representation of their material. The Georgia Center and the UGA Art Department at one time maintained a storage building where a once-circulating collection of educational and industrial films were stored. Those films eventually came to the Libraries' Media Archives and have been called the Georgia Center Film Collection. When the Media Archives was established in 1995, those films were brought here. Some of the films date back to the 1930s, though it is likely that these are later reprinted copies of earlier-produced films. The earliest known 2" videotape of a Georgia Center production that we hold was donated to us by Patrick Shields, "A Day with Jimmie Driftwood" which we believe dates to the early 1960s. In 2004, we received the bulk of the Georgia Center's taped programs consisting of tapes of educational programs on campus, continuing education programs, and original productions. A broad range of subjects is covered, including famous Georgians (Dean Rusk, Lamar Dodd, et al.), educational materials, and significant events at the University, among many others.
