Colin Killick about filming Stevenage Carnival
Technical issues at Stevenage Carnival
The Stevenage day was another interesting one. I managed to mess up one of the Stevenage Carnival films because I was given this 8mm camera to use which I wasn’t used to. As I said, you run one side and then run the other which means half way through you gotta turn it over. I managed to turn it over the other way so I managed to film on the back of the bit I’d already filmed, which came through as a sort of vague yellow flickering outline. I was not very popular especially as I think the Carnival committee had given us some money to do this. But it was still a good film at the end of it I reckon – showed what they did.
