I teach classes in music technology and media technology. Areas of investigation include creating audio soundtracks to video and still pics as well as video editing. I have dicovered that old TV shows are perfect for this type of project. They are fun to work with and you don’t have to worry about copyright issues. One great place I found for downloads (some free) is at a site called LTV Liketelevision. They have everything from old vintage cartoons to old commercials. You can download from the pay library for minimal costs.
