The Last Emperor Live, Philly – 1999

I recently found a bunch of my old 8mm / Hi8 “VHS” tapes and have been converting them to digital. Among them is this jewel from March 4th, 1999: Philadelphia’s own hiphop legend The Last Emperor performing live at Club SPACE:

Big shout-outs to Jared 360 Productions and Goodie Goodie for putting on the show.

Hope you enjoy the video! Here are some tech specs about how it was shot and captured:

Camcorder: Canon ES280
Tape: TDK HS120 8mm
Captured on Blackmagic Intensity Shuttle (Apple ProRes 422)
Time Base Corrector: AVT-8710
