Film Diary #8: Papa John Creach

Rental Format(s): Digital File

This was filmed in Chicago 1978, Papa John Creach playing with Grace Slick and Hot Tuna.

I filmed from stage side one roll of Reg 8mm black and white. As the film ran out of the second side of the film, someone from security tapped me on shoulder and demanded that I give him the film. I started fast talking and told him that I would stop filming, he still demanded the film. I then opened the camera and showed him that there was no film left in the camera. That seemed to please him and he left.

Music by Papa John Creach

Production format: 8mm

Film Diary Series
During my decades of filming on 16mm black and white, color reversal and negative I found a great deal of material that could be used in any projects. I guess one would call them "stand alone pieces." Some of them are sketches and others are complete in one way or another. I knew I just could not throw them away, ignore them, or have them sit in a can never to be viewed. I decided to release them as they are, of course edited and finally coming to the life of their own. They are visual diaries of certain times and places and events in my filmmaker life.
