Fireproof safe is okay with the silica gel. I do agree with the others, you should have raw clips backed up on hard drives for ready access and to spare yourself the task of having to redigitize. Permanent copies of completed projects on DVD’s is also a very good idea. All my grandma’s have ‘moved on’ so stashing tapes at their house ain’t an option. Besides, you wouldn’t want to lose them because your gm accidentally threw them out during one of her ‘cleaning urges’.
