This article is from the Records Management FAQ, by Bryan Carbonnell email@example.com and Douglas Johnson firstname.lastname@example.org with numerous contributions by others.
This section is devoted to resources that do not fit into any of the
Commonwealth Films in Massachuesetts (Boston, maybe?) both sells and
RENTS records-related videos, among others. They will let you PREVIEW
two videos for a couple of days for around $50, so you can decide if a
particular video is appropriate before showing it to your group. I've
seen their videos on retention and disaster prevention/recovery. While
they were a litte hokey, the basic principles conveyed were right on
target for a general business, non-specialized, non-records audience.
I personnally got a kick out of 'em! I'm considering renting them for
a records awareness program I'm putting together for the spring. The
videos sell for around $500. Happy viewing!

We have purchased two of the videos from Commonwealth Films. They are
excellent tools for training and marketing RIM programs. Granted they
are expensive, particularly for a smaller organization, but they
really drive home some very important points.
NB:From a post on the Recmgmt Mailing list by a couple of differnt
folks. I just can't remeber who they are. I'm Sorry :-(
