So I'm just getting my head around the task ahead...
The Hollywood Bowl has 17000 seats. That means that most people watch the performance on live relay on 4 giant screens placed either side of the stage and half way back in the auditorium. On the stage we are dots, on the screens you can see whites of our eyes (is that an expression?), the stitching of our costumes, or a roughly glued joint.
This means that we are doing a live show and making a film.
And we're going to be in front of an orchestra
The effect is quite strange.
When you see someone in close-up you immediately ask where are they on the stage? You need to locate them.
Or if you notice something on the stage you look to the camera to see what it was.
But the camera might not be pointing at it and so it isn't there in the on-screen narrative. I'm going to make a film on imovie and see if I can figure this out.
Then I can reverse engineer it in rehearsal.
It might just work.
