Thread Name: Nic Jones - video footage?
Subject: RE: Nic Jones - video footage?
I've searched high & low for film/video footage of Nic & The Halliard, all to no avail.Back in the 60s/early 70s there were an increasing number of 8mm & super8mm film cameras around, but IMHO,it's got less to do with hardware availability & much more to do with the impact of the 'digital revolution' & attitudes in society. Now it's so easy to film/video/record almost any performance (legally AND illegally!). The results can be viewed instantly, you can more or less edit as you go. Back when we were performing, capturing good moving images was a much more serious undertaking, left largely to the pro's and a small group of dedicated amateurs, none of whom sadly, ever pointed a camera at us!
