March 14th 2017 The first day of shooting
a short video about the tape recorder and its use in our film making in the 1960s.
The outside location shots were done in a park area close to John's home in
Banska Bystrica, Slovakia using the UHER 4000 portable tape recorder and video
sound on a digital recorder for later synching to the video image.
March 15th 2017 The second day of shooting
was carried out indoors partly due to the weather. This was the section of the
video that dealt with the various parts of the of the tape recorder and the
operation of it. Some of the voice overs will be redone in a more suitable
accoustic using the takes from today as a guide.
