When? About 1987. Possibly a bit later.
The image above is the cover of a DVD I put together years later, using stills from these "movies."
We "filmed" (using one of the original home video camcorders, maybe an RCA, borrowed from Richard P) at a kind of church mall on Harvard near University (in Irvine). I didn't even get to know Jan until the fall of '86 or early '87 (at IVC), so I would guess that we did this in about 1987, when Kathie and I were living at UCI's Verano Place. Ron would have been about 21 years old at the time, going to Berkeley or UCI.
The camera looked a bit like this, I guess.
Jan used my hat.
Ron's "Father Tranquility" was a standout, though we all did well that day, I think
This image was made years later. Pretty ugly. The "Gun-O-Rama" sequence was filmed in our apartment in Verano Place, UCI
Ron and I had purchased a Tascam 4-track recorder at about that time for home recordings. Hence the microphone. I still have all that stuff, but not the mike.
