I now have a rehearsal schedule for the new CAM piece. Now I need to find some drop cloths. Big ones. And buy some more graphite.
Do you know Busby Berkeley? He was a filmmaker and musical choreographer in Hollywood who first accomplished filming from a pure bird’s eye point of view. He used large casts of showgirls and created stunning geometric kaleidoscope shapes and images. I’m not going the showgirl direction, but I like the viewpoint. We don’t think about it, but it’s very hard to get that camera viewpoint without obstruction. That is what I’m trying to do for the film component of this piece. It may need to morph into something else, but that’s my vision.
