Lost footage of David Bowie shown for first time

Lost footage of David Bowie filmed by a De Montfort University Leicester professor who had struck up a friendship with the legendary artist has been shown publicly for the first time in the UK. Professor Martin Richardson, one of the UK’s leading authorities on holography – the creation of three-dimensional images – became friends with Bowie in the 1990s and ended up producing the 3D version of the cover photo that appeared as an insert with the rock star’s 1999 album “…hours”. But the year before that, Bowie, who was famously fascinated by and involved in the creation of new technology, allowed Professor Richardson to shoot some experimental film of him in Blue Sky Studios, Kensal Rise, London.
