Veneruso, Tara Music Video Collection, 1993-1997

Video-taped interviews, scripts, production logs and photographs (1993-1997) in the Tara Veneruso Collection document the creation of Janis Joplin Slept Here: a Documentary on Austin Music and Culture (1994, 120 min.) featuring Richard Linklater, Joe King Carrasco, Jimmie Vaughn, Ian Moore, Tish Hinojosa, Tommy Shannon and other members of the Austin music scene. The documentary uses Janis Joplin, Texas's first female rock superstar, as a link to connect various reminiscences of Austin music and life covering the time period 1960 to 1993. In addition to the finished film, the collection includes raw footage of approximately 70 interviews, concert footage taken in Austin clubs and venues during 1993, and images of posters and mementos from the collections of local musicians. A shooting log and production notes summarize the contents of the master tapes. Research articles, original photographs and a film production book provide context for the taped interviews. In addition to the Janis Joplin materials, the collection includes footage from Veneruso's 1994 short film Oslo-Austin Week featuring Bruce Hancock, a 1997 tape of the band Omar and the Howlers, interviews with the band Brave Combo from 1996, a 1996 music video of Christine Caughey, and a 1995 music video of The Fabulous Bowler Boys.
