I usually don’t re-use them for weddings, but after however long they sit in the folder for each couple expires, I put them into a box of tapes and they get used for couple things.

The first is my own "fun shooting". I figure that my own side projects aren’t worth spending $3 on, because unlike my clients, I don’t get paid for my filmmaking and other stuff.

I also give a lot of my used tapes to my church and a couple other community agencies that have video equipment. It saves them money, and I get to write off the cost of the tape. Yeah, it’s only a few hundred bucks a year, but every penny helps!

I try not to let the tape box get too full (though there’s probably 50-75 tapes in there right now). Ah, the joys of videography!
