Hey guys! This week’s free write is on a movie I saw this summer, “Grease Live”. It’s a remake of the original “Grease” but with new generation stars. The cool thing about it is they filmed all of it in one take. Also, what I enjoyed about it is they had a bunch of former Disney Channel stars. If you know me you would know I am a huge Disney fanatic! I will post a video down below of one of my favorite songs from the movie.
The first thing about “Grease Live” that I found really cool is that they filmed it all in one take. Like I’m pretty sure the movie was an hour to an hour and a half and all the shots were really smooth. If you are in the media class, imagine running the morning announcements for an hour and a half except, you constantly move the cameras. Do you know how hard that is? Sometimes we screw up the announcements and it’s only a few minutes long. Also, imagine trying to switch settings, and the characters are constantly changing outfits. Sometimes they would have to change outfits in the middle of a song. On another blog I read that they had to use golf carts to get from set to set. So I thought that was really interesting and cool, here is the video!
If what I said in the last paragraph did not make sense and you watched the video before reading this then you would know what I was talking about. Now, you see how smooth the cameras are, and how they change scenes and costumes so fast. If you would like to watch it and you have Netflix, it’s on there. Anyways that’s all for this week’s free write. I hope you enjoyed! Bye!
