Memory Tapes is a documentary web series directed by Warren Fu. It is about the production of Daft Punk’s fourth and final studio album, Random Access Memories. Each episode features a collaborator with retrospect on their work on the album.

The series serves to contrast The Collaborators, a web series released to promote Random Access Memories. While both feature interviews with artists who contributed to the album, The Collaborators covers how the artist's creative process and their interaction with Daft Punk, though being somewhat enigmatic, as the album was yet to be released. Memory Tapes looks more in retrospect, featuring more video and audio footage of the recording sessions.

The episodes are filmed on the studios where the album was recorded, Gang Studios in Paris and the Jim Henson Studios in Los Angeles.
