The Beyoncé Video Collection- Circa 1992

 

Ted Owen & Co. are proud to be offering a unique collection of 12 original professionally produced Betacam video tapes of Beyoncé Knowles. The collection of tapes document the earliest music video appearance of Girls Tyme showcasing and starring a then 10 year old Beyoncé Knowles. 

The collection, dating from 1992, consists of approximately two and half hours of footage depicting Beyoncé playing to camera in several locations, working out dance routines, rehearsing for a live performance in addition to performing at an artists showcase in San Francisco. There is additional unedited footage of Beyoncé at the Record Plant recording studios in Sausalito California, working on dance routines for what was intended to be her first professionally recorded music video.

This recently unearthed and never seen original footage offers the viewer a candid insight into a 10 year old Beyoncé developing her craft that would ultimately make her the world's biggest pop stars. 

This is a unique opportunity to acquire rare and original archival footage and witness the beginning of what we know to be Beyoncé's incredible journey to superstardom.

The complete collection of tapes are being offered in a closed auction, with bids being accepted from 29th November 2016, closing on 10th January 2017.

*Note: A portion of the music video from videotape #12 was pirated more than twenty years ago from a low resolution "work in progress" videotape. It has since been posted to YouTube and has been seen in it's most degraded form. This one minute and three second clip is believed to represent the only unauthorized use of any footage from the collection.
