...so if any UK Frenz see someone wearing a balaclava, grappling Hook and carrying a large
split Enz road case it's only me breaking into the BBC and "borrowing" all the master copies of the footage that Gavin mentioned! (No I didn't visit the Van Gough Museum earlier).
I must say though, the BBC were incredibly efficient compared to most other TV stations, TV NZ were good too. One or two even let us have a few minutes for FREE (unheard of!!!). (:
When I first started both DVD projects I truely thought the old "better to make some money then none at all" would be appealing to these tv stations as far as buying footage. I was amazed at the amount of 'banging our heads against brick walls' that had to happen... especially with the ABC...who I used to like but probably not again. However life has a way of falling into the "what goes around comes around" and it will only be a matter of time before they need something from us and this elephant has a lonnnnnng memory! (: I have a lovely "wants" list that could be handy for future Enz projects. Mushroom were really good with this DVD and went beyond the call of duty especially budget wise, so I hope it keeps doing well (onya Dave!) for them too.
Gav's comparison to a greedy child is pretty close to being exact....for some of them.It is probably part of the reason why so few 70/80 Aussie acts have dvds available.
