The Triangle Indie Film Meetup Group Message Board › Fun AV/Geeks Showing on Friday - NCMA

Fun AV/Geeks Showing on Friday - NCMA

Cary, NC
Post #: 549
The NC Museum of Art in Raleigh is doing what will probably be a really fun show that is along with their Mad Men theme for the spring.

Winter-Spring Film Series: Mad about Mad Men

Celluloid Salesman from the A/V Geeks Archive
Friday, February 17 | 8 pm
NC Museum of Art, East Building, Museum Auditorium - Raleigh

Celluloid Salesman

Mad Men is all about advertising. The TV show incorporates many real-life products and sales campaigns into the scripts for extra authenticity. This Friday Skip Elsheimer of A/V Geeks will share some of his favorite vintage advertising and sales films with the help of his trusty 16 mm projector. Some, like Kodak’s Movies Move People, realize the potential of motion pictures as a tireless yet effective sales tool, while others, like Sears’s Freeze-In, are strange curiosities. Skip's shows are always a lot of fun, so straighten your tie and join him and his celluloid salesmen.

Celluloid Salesman from the A/V Geeks Archive

Skip Elsheimer, visionary collector of 24,000 16 mm educational and industrial movies, brings a typically inspired kaleidoscope of edutainment focusing on the postwar Madison Avenue advertising world. Watch sly marketers use the classroom to mold a generation of consumers. N.C. State University film studies professors Marsha and Devin Orgeron join him with their new book, Learning with the Lights Off. Copies of the book will be available for purchase, along with DVDs from the A/V Geeks library.
