As well as a lot of great shop adverts the back issues of Starburst also had a load of great film adverts, with a surprisingly large amount featuring London mentions, here’s a selection of some of my favourites:
We had a blast this weekend at the Nine Worlds Geekfest 2016, this was our fourth time there in a row and it’s always such a great convention. One of the highlights for us though was being able to screen the Nine Worlds Sci-Fi VHS Mix to everyone there, which was made up of these 6 vintage VHS tapes.
When we were at Nine Worlds in 2015 there was a table full of vintage VHS Sci-Fi tapes at the back of the screening room, which had been brought along by the friend of someone that had sadly passed away. The idea was to give the tapes away so other people could enjoy them and that they could live on, an idea we loved so much! So I went through everything there and took this handful of tapes with a thought of doing something special with them. The idea being that we could make these tapes live on even longer by bringing them back once again but in a different form.
So skip forward a year and we’re back at the festival with a special 10-minute mix featuring the funniest, oddest and most expected clips we could find from the tapes. We dropped this on everyone at the end of our first session, giving them the low down on the story of the tapes and why we’d done it. So here it is now for everyone to enjoy, get a load of the Nine Worlds Sci-Fi VHS Mix right here:
