Mtv VMA Film Look

Does anyone know how MTV is making the VMA look like film?

The event is live so...?

Film? It's just like the other ones. 24P HD. Looks like choppy video to me, makes me want to barf.

Is it? It looks good to me... so good that it resembles the musical concert specials they have every now and then on PBS.

They did the same thing two or three years ago; I thought it was some effect. I was actually going to ask about it. Going from 24p to our TVs (60i, right?) makes it look like sh!t.

ps-I've always hated awards shows, esp. this one. Everyone at my TV station is watching it like religion right now. Ugh.

pss-Sign up for my DVD contest, wink wink!

i have to agree with the others that dont like the effect.
it is distracting, which is still a bad thing right?

Are we talking about the same thing?

I'm not talking about past VMA ('01 '02) or that Mtv2 look.

If ya didn't see it maybe you can catch a rerun and see what I mean, the 2003 one looked good! So good that it was 90% of the reason I watched it.

VMA Look

I saw it too and had the same question. I do know what you mean that some of it looked good. There were moments that the colors looked nice and rich, but those moments, for me, were fleeting. On the whole, it looked choppy.

I asked some friends, who are not in the biz and know nothing about video, thought it looked funky.

There was something good in there, though.

I asked this question on another thread-

I THINK IT LOOKED INCREDIBLE.

I want to know what CAMERAS were used.

PLEASE SOMEONE TELL ME!

Varicam?

I disagree that it looked bad or choppy. That's the future, and it looks
like 16mm film.

I still cant decide if I liked the look or not. I 'm leaning towards not. IMO it was a horroribly produced show with some really bad performances and way to many commercial breaks but i guess they gotta pay those bills.

Last year they used Sony Cinealtas here's the thread from last year, and downcoverted live. I imagine they did the same this year. I think a lot of the look came through processing that was done to the overall feed, after the camera switching.
