Classic Theatre (1975)


From David Atwood

Here’s a great shot taken in the Temple Church Courtyard in London, 1975. The shoot was for Classic Theatre and the actor we were going to interview was Ian McKellan.

Characters in the shot left to right, John MacKnight (lighting), Karl Lorencic (video), Nat Johnson (audio), Greg Macdonald (camera), and John McKnight (tape). Joan Wilson was producing. I was directing. The camera being gently dollyed was the dreaded PCP-90, Phillps’ full broadcast color camera with a full set of headaches to match.
