In 1990 I was at New Music Seminar
in New York City, trying to learn the ropes of the music business while I pimped my band's recordings. At one panel on making music videos, I was given the advice to "shoot on film" and then "transfer to video" for editing. I took the advice at face value, but -- at the time -- I had a lingering question about why this was true
As I was putting together a retrospective on my work over the past few years, I realized that I had answered the question -- to my own satisfaction. As to whether this advice still holds true, I have my own opinion.
