I´ve got to film a small dance company performing live and I´ve only got one camera (XL2). How can I make it look better than a whole stage, static long shot? They are singing and dancing. I´ve had 2 thoughts on the problem:
1) Mount camera on tripod and let it roll for the entire concert (I will grab audio on a seperate pro minidisc set-up) and try and shoot a second night to get different angles, close-ups cutaways etc...
2) Do the above but once and try and do something in post (premier) by zooming into faces, feet etc
I am worried that if I try and do some close-ups etc on the same night I will have a lack of footage while I reangle camera. But I am also worried that if I try and blow-up footage in post to get close-ups on faces etc the resolution will look naff.
Has anyone any advice please?
