Vintage Computer Federation can supply antique and historic computing gear for your TV commercial, television show, movie, or photo shoot. We also offer script consulting for historical accuracy on vintage computing subjects.

We have a vast supply of computers, monitors, terminals, mainframes, disk drives, printers, and peripherals. Our systems are from the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. If we don’t have it, then we can almost always get it.

“As a TV/Film Set Decorator, I have worked with Vintage Computer Federation on a number of my projects to date. They helped make my sets possible with a period, realistic look that I could not have gotten from my regular prop house sources. Their access to a network of vintage computers, printers, peripherals, and vast computer knowledge helped keep the details accurate. Most notable were sets I did for The Americans on FX (FBI machine room, KGB HQ computer bullpen, travel agency) and a recent Spike Lee movie, Black Klansman… I look forward to working with VCF in the future.”
