Ms. KLS Posted September 12, 2006 Report Share Posted September 12, 2006 I am so angry at the bloody cameramen who film ballets. I just watched the DVD of Peter and the Wolf by the Royal Ballet School kids and Anthony Dowell, and I could just shoot the blankety-blank cameraman. I don't know where they get their training, but it infuriates me when they do that stupid closeup of a dancer -- while s/he is dancing! -- so we miss out on the steps, etc. I am screaming at the TV, I'm so enraged. I know it's nice to have shots of people's faces, but that's not what I want to see. I want to see the steps and the DANCING. Arrrgh! This happens all the time in every ballet DVD I've seen. Even in some of Balanchine's. I can't believe that he would have allowed such disrespect of his dancers and choreography. Sorry. I just had to rant a bit. Quote Link to comment
