My Collection of Media Sources (and lots of misc research)

  • Tech Staff

    Back when I was designing shows in NYC for a year I started collecting links to places to source public domain media ethically and also compiled some specific research links for various topics relevant to those shows. 

    Here's my compiled list of mostly sources for public domain movies, videos, vj loops, books, spoken word audio, audio books, music, art images, still images, presidential material, etc.

    Feel free to leave a comment on the document if you've got something to add.

    If this has been helpful, and especially if you end up using it for a commercial (paid) project, and if you/your theatre/your company can afford to, I'd be very happy if you'd show your appreciation by donating to one or more of the following causes: 

    • A one-off donation of any amount (even $5) to the Kaleidoscope Diversity Trust
      1. Click red "Support Us" button near the bottom 
      2. Click "other amount" at the bottom 
      3. Click "Continue" at the bottom right and then it'll give you the option to make a one-off donation
    • Help support Roz Etra, the parter of the late Bill Etra (creator of the wondrous Rutt-Etra plugin!).
    • I'd prefer if you gave to one of the other causes above, but I also have a Paypal. Donations will be used to fund my own artwork, cover my living expenses, and also to feed my insatiable equipment addiction. (Contributions are appreciated, but not necessary [I'd really rather you give to one or both of the causes above]) 

    Best wishes,


  • @woland💰sent. Thank you. 

  • This is a pretty amazing resource.  Thank you for sharing!  And thank you for the calling out of that racist asshole Lovecraft! ;)
