SHORT FILMS OF EUROPEAN STEELBANDS DESIRED

Dear European Steelbands

Please find an email I received from Kim Johnson (T&T), author of the book
"The Illustrated Story of Pan", published 2011 and co-author of the film
"Pan! Our Music Odyssey", released 2014:

Hi Mathias. We met a long time ago. What I would like is some HD film footage of a steelband performing.
About 30   seconds to one minute.  It is to be used in a a documentary about pan which I am making. I need
images of different steelbands from around the world that illustrate the statement "pan has spread to North
America, Europe, Japan, Australia by small steelbands sprouting like wildflowers". It has to be HD (cinematic
quality, at least 1080p) and the band should visibly be non-Caribbean. And I would need a written copyright
release. If you can get that for me it would be greatly appreciated. It will be around 200-300MB in size but
you could send it to me by dropbox or any of the ways large files are transferred to > eshu55@gmail.com.
Perhaps you could ask some of the other Swiss bands to do the same. Kim.
