PaulKellyLongBay - photo taken and uploaded by Paul Moss, Photographer, Artist, Paul Moss Photographer Artist NZ Paul Moss has supplied further information on the creation of this image in response to my questions via email: 1) Were you involved in making the video of PK&tCG's performance at Long Bay Gaol? 2) Were you an employee of Stuart Coupe or Paul Kelly Management in 1985? 3) Was the photo taken from a TV program/VHS tape, if so which? 4) How was the image released into the public domain? 5) Is there a clearer print of the scene? Answers from Paul Moss: 1/ YES. I was the only video-grapher, the footage was made on my own equipment, at my own cost. (Sony HVC4000P and F1) 2/ I was asked to make the video by and for Stuart Coupe, while he was PK manager. 3/ The photo was taken from my original video tape, it was sony betamax format, by me. I took a 35mm film photo of the screen in 1987, played directly, and subsequently scanned the print. 4/ I uploaded the file to Wikipedia, I claimed the right to release the image. 5/ I don't know if the vhs copy is still existant, but if it is I could make a clearer copy. I could certainly make a new file without the text on it. I thank Paul Moss for supplying this additional information.shaidar cuebiyar (talk) 08:40, 12 May 2010 (UTC) Recent Documentary played on ABC Television.
