Adjust Your Tracking: The Untold Story of the VHS Collector is a feature-length documentary directed by Dan Kinem and Levi Peretic that sheds light on the growing VHS culture and the community of collectors that still cherish what many refer to as a “dead format.” It is a passion project made by true lovers of the format for not only people who love VHS, but also for people who can remember having to rewind a movie before they could watch it and for people who remember the glorious days of going to the video store each weekend to rent a movie. It was culled from over 1,000 hours of footage and over 100 interviews with collectors, distributors, and video store owners like Lloyd Kaufman (head of Troma Entertainment), Tony Timpone (former editor of Fangoria), Fred Vogel (director, August Underground), Sam Sherman (horror producer extraordinaire), Zack Carlson (producer American Scream), Mike McPadden (head writer, Mr. Skin), and many, many more. The film was completely funded through Kickstarter and has been a huge community effort. Directors Levi and Dan run the popular VHS-review site, VHShitfest and the film was produced by Matt Desiderio of Horror Boobs Video and Josh Schafer of Lunchmeat Magazine. Adjust Your Tracking premiered in Los Angeles on April 5th and has been screening around the world since then. It is currently booking more screenings around the world including an Adjust Your Tracking VHS Tour in August. With articles recently posted on USA Today, Slash Film, Fangoria, Time Out New York, and more, the film has been gaining a lot of buzz.
