Photos by Big Wave PR’s in-house photographer, Carl Allen, are being featured in a new documentary on legendary indie group, The Go-Betweens.
The Go-Betweens formed in the late 1970s and Carl has been a superfan since the late-1980s; he has had the opportunity to photograph the band in the UK and on tour throughout Europe.
The documentary, ‘Right Here’ used over 30 of Carl’s photographs; the film was premiered at the Sydney Film Festival in 2017 and was voted ‘Documentary of The Year’ by the Australian Screen Produce Association. The film received a UK cinema release in 2018 and is now available on DVD.
Carl is very proud that photographs of his favourite band, were featured in the documentary. He says: “I was very surprised and honoured when the production company got in touch to ask access to my photo collection on the Go-betweens. I’m very proud that my photographs are now part of the band’s history.”
He continued: “My first shots of the Go-Betweens were taken at gigs on a film camera, and it was a real pleasure to go through these images, scan for the producers, and reminisce about the band’s early days.”
Carl’s photographs will also feature in a new box set of the band, which is due out in the New Year. Out of hours you can also catch Carl on social media @musicvenueman and see him travel the UK discussing live music venues and of course the bands that play within their hallowed walls.
Carl is also available to take inspirational photos for your PR and marketing needs. We can’t promise to put you on the silver screen, but we can promise to deliver great results https://www.wearebigwavepr.co.uk/marketing-services-essex/.
