Australian Media Museum - NSW

Can You Help?

An enthusiastic group of ex radio, film and television professionals, some retired, some still working, are keenly interested in setting up a working museum dedicated to our industry.

Currently we have a large collection of equipment, much of which would otherwise have ended up as scrap metal.

Our collection includes:

Film cameras from 1900, to modern day broadcast TV cameras

4 – 6 – 8 plate flat bed film editors, Moviolas

Rank Cintel Mark III Digiscan

Huge collection of lighting

Mole Richardson camera crane

All formats of video tape recorders

Vision mixers

And much more!

The intention is to create a working, hands on film / television studio, which will be open to the public, and will be operated by retired and working volunteers.

We Need

A large, accessible storage space - we have run out of space!

Items to add to the collection!

Your expertise and enthusiasm to join our group!

We are associated with AMMPT http://www.ammpt.asn.au/ started in Western Australia 6 years ago. Other states are following suit. The Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) in Melbourne is an excellent example of what can be achieved http://www.acmi.net.au.

Time is running out for NSW. If you can assist in any capacity, or would like further information, contact:
