Staying true to the mission of preserving and curating the wide expanse of American film, and treating some overlooked films with the respect they deserve.
I created the TCM Vault Collection to surface neglected film titles hidden in major studio vaults and highlight them in a special way. These editions contained exceptional design, bonus features, and often newly remastered film prints. The reality remains today that there are hundreds of deserving titles in various libraries ripe for discovery and in need to find an audience, but little financial means or vision to bring these titles to market. The Vault Collection was the genesis of several ideas that would find their way into FilmStruck. It was a highly profitable series for the studios and TCM, surfacing over 100 titles and generating 100s of thousands of units sold.
