Camera Movement. The energy and vibe.....
Pitch Perfect has the energy and feel good vibe in it's musical sequences that has to be an infulence BUT for me, for the tone and energy of camera...... We achieve this with two cameras: a technocrane to get swooping wides or jib and dolly, and a steadicam and a lighting board oprator that subtly changes lights on cues.
GLEE has to be one of the best, most joyful influences for musical sequences and feel good factor.
I will shoot the varying carol sequences to contrast with each other. It can not be shot exactly the same or it will be exhausting. In order to be exciting, I will design the camera and stage the actors to give excitement, lyricism, calm, still. The contrast gives a roller coaster ride of Christmas joy.
