    Raw tape from the 1978 documentary “Overnight Man,” which follows WBBM/Chicago radio news man Joe Cummings. Mostly outdoor (i.e. black) b-roll, although there is an interesting segment with the camera following Cummings into the Cook County Hospital and getting kicked out. Good footage of Chicago police in the 70’s, when the detectives still looked like they came straight out of a film noir. Also includes a shot of Miller’s Pub at night. Continue reading

    [The 90’s raw: Kids’ tv, Michael Colyar, Shadow Traffic]

    Raw footage for the award-winning series The 90’s. The first segment captures the recording of a children’s news program called “Chicago on Parade.” They visit the Museum of Science and Industry, the Field Museum, the Adler Planetarium and the Art Institute. The kids’ reporting style is very formal, like traditional TV news, and they fumble often to remember their lines. The second segment is an interview with fast-talking comedian and humanitarian Michael Colyar in a park in downtown Chicago. Colyar had recently been in the public spotlight because he was the winner of the $100,000 Grand Prize competition on “Star Search” and immediately donated half of the money to a charity for homeless children. Colyar got his start in Chicago before moving to Los Angeles but was back in town for a performance. When describing his comedy, he says it is socially conscious and thought provoking, often dealing with such issues as racism or AIDS. The third segment covers the headquarters for Shadow Traffic in the John Hancock Observatory. Continue reading
