AFI 100 Best Movie Songs

Some nice interview lighting in this program. Many different tools to achieve similar effects. I think Art Garfunkle's main light was a lowel pro behind a translucent pop-up. You can't get much more basic than that.

Did you notice the 4 Kinoflos surrounding Barbara Striesand for her interview? Lots of make-up, soft lighting and mist filter.

I have seen it for years now, but I can't stand the profile cutaway during interviews. This was the editing effect of the evening.

I agree the profile cutaway is nothing new, but I thought the additional "high and wide" view that revealed the lights and cameras was a nice twist in that it wasn't just a handheld DV camera, but a locked-off, matching high-end camera.

I channel surfed on and off the show, but thought it was nicely done regardless.

I bet Babs insisted on that particular lighting for her interview - it's not too different from the way her films are lit.

I agree - I thought it was interesting to see how each interviewee was lit. Unfortunately I only was able to tape part of the show but I have to go back and watch carefully again. On the whole I thought it was a nicely edited show. Some of the commercial blocks were intolerable though! (yeah big surprise!)
