date: genre:

The collection consists of production elements and video recordings of interviews and other footage related to Harry Crews and to the making of the documentary "Harry Crews: Guilty as Charged."

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 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 programming from WATL's "Sunday News Conference," covering the period from 1990-1996 (with some exclusions). Topics include public affairs, Rick Shaw's Swan Song, Super Bowl Sunday 1996, and an undated interview with Franklin Garrett.

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.

For 35 years, Foxfire has been collecting history of the Southern Appalachian region, its people, and their ways of life. Starting with the publication of the first issue of The Foxfire Magazine in March 1967, Foxfire students have collected over 2,500 hours of taped interviews, more than 80,000 black and white negatives and photos, over 10,000 color slides, and 1,100 videotaped interviews with the elders of the Appalachian region. A unique feature of the audiotaped, videotaped, and photographic collections is that the information was collected by high school students, transcribed for the most part by hand, and published in The Foxfire Magazine and book series. The archives include a large amount of data never published.

The collection consists of over 500 film reels from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. Topics covered include parks and historic sites (e.g. Tallulah Falls, Fort McAllister), hunting, fish (especially trout), birds (woodpeckers, eagles, etc), wildlife (e.g. white-tailed deer), various locations around Georgia (Atlanta, Sapelo Island, etc) and incidents in Georgia history. The collection spans the 1970s through the 1990s, but is not a complete archive of all the unit's output. Also included is film footage collected by the department, dating to the 1950s.

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.

The collection consists of: 1. Eighty-six 30-minute Dictabelts of poor to average audio quality, roughly half of them labeled "Bacon County" and apparently dictated by Crews during research and composition (circa 1974-1976) of his memoir A Childhood: The Biography of A Place. Other Dictabelt subjects include: (1) "Overdrive" interview(s) for 1977 Esquire article, (2) "The Trucker Militant"; (3) "Polo Lounge" [Beverly Hills]; and (4) Southern Express (unproduced screenplay). 2. Twenty-three videotapes, mostly multiple copies of two documentary films -- The Rough South of Harry Crews (1993) and Harry Crews: Guilty as Charged (1992). Also includes multiple NTSC copies of Crews' 1996 appearance on French TV station Canal+ program "Nulle Part Ailleurs," and original SECAM format dub; copies of Crews' acceptance remarks for Georgia Writers Hall of Fame award (December 2002) and a copy of feature film The Indian Runner, with Crews' cameo appearance. 3. Forty-three audiotape cassettes, chiefly from Crews' magazine assignments in 1970s and 1980s; also interviews with him 1979-1999 from various sources, and one partial recording of creative writing lecture/class.
