Venice Beach Confidential

Part of the California Confidential series, this documentary takes a peek at the decadent yet boldly creative scene at Venice Beach, California during the 80's where director Jeff Jackson immersed himself in his early years as an artist and filmmaker.

Ted Hawkins made his home part time in Venice Beach California as a relatively unknown street performer and part time in Europe where he achieved some level of fame and recognition.
Ted Hawkins (October 28, 1936 — January 1, 1995), featured in Venice Beach Confidential, was an American singer-songwriter. He was born in Biloxi, Mississippi, United States. Hawkins was an enigmatic figure through most of his career; he split his time between his adopted hometown of Venice Beach, California where he was a mostly anonymous street performer, and Europe, where he and his songs were better known and well received in clubs and small concert halls.
