Hello! My name is Max Clark. I’m a fellow VHS enthusiast; my mom managed the local video store/ dry cleaner when I was a kid (until it closed), I worked in another video store all through high school, I collected vhs all through college in Western Massachusetts (during the early 00’s when mom & pop video stores were closing left & right). My collection is more modest these days, but I’m still very enthusiastic about the culture of collecting tapes. I’m currently developing a short- form episodic documentary series on the history of video stores; the rise of vhs, the boom period of store & franchise growth, the decline in the late 90’s and the current “resurgence” of interest in the format. Ultimately I’d like to hold a tape swap/vhs fest in the area. I’m looking for (if possible) a moment of your time for an interview.
