What happened to DoRo’s footage when the company filed for bankruptcy?
I assume all the assets we auctioned off, with Queen Productions buying / claiming ownership over all footage that concerned the band?

Do I have this right?

According to this source from 2003 the DoRos had several bancruptcies

and that does not mean they ever stopped working - instead they started a new company. At the time of the article they left Vienna and moved to Munic and Jim Beach was supposed to be financially involved.
I don't know how many companies they have started and closed since then, but I think they are so clever, that they always keep their archive in safe hands.

I see, thanks for the reply, DoRo know all the tricks.
At least that explains why Queen Productions keep using DoRo to make videos, they are sitting on a gold mine, not only Queen either.

Indeed, their 40000+ hours of archive stuff (thats 25 years of recordings from 100+ artists...) was kept in the new company, the one that went bankrupt was emptied before...
