Ami-Tek??

Hey guys, just wondering if anyone has any knowlege as to what happened to Ami-Tek or has any contact with people who were involved?

The reason I ask is that I have picked up a VHS video of 'Deluxe Paint III Video Tutor' by Ami-Tek and would very much like to put it online somewhere.
I would however like the appropriate permissions from either Ernie Swan or Duncan Webster who according to the video cover hold the Copyright.

Any info is very much appreciated, thanks in advance, Mick.

From what I read here: http://web.archive.org/web/200509211...an-webster.htm, he could be the Duncan Webster you are looking for. He runs this business: http://www.1pcs.co.uk/

You need to mark the text in the first link because it's white on white (at least here). Or google for ""Duncan Webster" Amiga" and click on the cached page. I quote the important remark here:
Quote:
Jun 1990 - Aug 1991
Developed 2 computer training videos whilst still in the RAF in my own spare time. Both videos had excellent reviews in Amiga Format and Amiga Computing magazine.

Many thanks Thor! no idea why my googling did not pick that up, I guess he is the same guy as the video is the seccond of two and has copyright 1991 on it.

I have dropped him an email.

Good luck! And there shouldn't be too many Ducan Webster's who made training videos for the Amiga. Keep us informed of your results.

Bump!

Duncan Webster has not returned any emails over several months and I can find no trace of Ernie Swann online.

Any ideas or help appreciated, would be awesome to get this video online.
