Got a band but can’t afford to shoot a video? Use public CCTV cameras and then demand the footage!: This is a great idea. I wonder how long it took them to get all this footage?
Unable to hire a production crew for a standard 1980’s era MTV music video, they performed their music in front of 80 of the 13 million CCTV “security” cameras available in England, including one on a bus.
They then used Britain’s Data Protection Act to request the footage that was shot of them.
If it’s anything like the Freedom of Information Act in the U.S., they could have been waiting for years.
