UK’s Big Brother Cameras Shoot Music Video

I loved this story in the Telegraph (via BB, again!) about the UK band The Get Out Clause that decided to take advantage of the huge number of CCTV cameras that blanket much of the country’s urban areas:

“They set up their equipment, drum kit and all, in eighty locations around Manchester – including on a bus – and proceeded to play to the cameras. Afterwards they wrote to the companies or organisations involved and asked for the footage under the Freedom of Information Act.”

While not all the companies complied they ended up with enough footage to make a compelling little video.  The process itself is a great commentary on the proliferation of 24-hour surveillance.
