Valerie Taylor AM at Picanninnie Ponds, South Australia. (1964)
When home video rentals were a new idea in 1983, we made this 90 minute documentary film as a test. Original footage was super8. The more professional 16mm film was too expensive at the time. Other film makers were using the technique before me. (The Leyland Bros had a TV show that was all Super8 footage transferred to 2 inch video tape – with noticeable splices that were not professional yet no worse than the nightly network news). Some dive shops were using Sea Safari as part of their training. It was a collection of short stories. A bit of fun separating the more serious moments.
