The Golden Age of Lost Television
The goal is to take these one of a kind 16mm & 35mm celluloid Television Shows, Kinescopes, Newsreels, Cartoons, Home Movies, Educational films, Travelogues, Documentaries and especially thousands of TV Commercials that have been restored to 2k/4k High Definition imagery and create an Interactive Syndicated Series produced by the staff and students that Amazon, Netflix and especially the Disney Channel would want to acquire.
Where Robert Osborn was the spirit that brought an audience of all ages to appreciate restored Hollywood Motion Pictures through Turner Classic Movies; my credentials show that I can do the same with The Golden Age of Lost Television, and create an awarding winning series, Global Data Base and Educational programs that will draw media and public attention because of the unique content and approach.

Students Don't Want to Write Term Papers they Want to make Videos.
As the collection is restored we are further developing the already established Stock Footage Library with a client list of the Who’s Who of the Entertainment, Universities, Scholars and the Business world, among others. It’s the last chance to acquire this amount of Diverse Original Film Elements to create High Definition Images, and this amount of Digital Files and tapes to rival Wikipedia.
Student Digital Film Restoration Projects
Mobil Computer Film Editing Classes & Research Projects
Once you transfer a full reel of Celluloid Commercials holding sixty (60) to a hundred and twenty (120) commercials to a Digital File they will all need to be color & sound corrected, and created into individual files also needed to program the data base.
The same breakdown will be needed to examine and repair many of the decomposing Celluloid elements, while make their own video documenting there hands on work to examine and restore these films.
The future hosts are the student presenting their findings and writing the scripts.
The Historical Data Base
will double as a social network
and information community.
We all become online historians actively documenting and preserving the unique history of America.
Self-generating, with hundreds of Boomers uploading their own photos, Home Movies and family histories, and mid-century ephemera. In this way, the site can become a crowd-sourced historical home base that grows far beyond my initial materials.
The Birth of Commercial Advertising on Television
The Fort Knox for the University will be the million plus celluloid and digital formatted Television Commercials, Sales Films, Documentaries, and Behind the Scenes of the Advertising Industry, including the Clio Awards I rescued from their burnt out headquarters that will attract the most attention to our work.
I've been known as the Toy and Nostalgia guy on Television and in print media since the 1980's when I was one of pioneering collectors that caused the Boomer Toys & Memorabilia Collecting Craze in the 1980's, when I was discovered also a pioneer in the new world of Public Access Television where my show Biograph Days, Biograph Nights ran 7 days a week for over 25 years.

My career behind the scenes getting the public's interest in seeing these old commercials, was when I again caused excitement when Johnny Carson, David Letterman and Jay Leno on their Late Night Shows surprised their Movie Star Gusets with a commercial from their past.
