I Hope I Get It
The opening song from A Chorus Line cuts its cast in half from the get-go. All the dancers work their asses off for a chance to make it into a show within a show and our entire evening as an audience is spent with performers desperate for a chance to do what they love to do--dance.
I've been trying to find ways of making the close up on a character's face more interesting. In the show, some dancers rest on the side of the stage before jumping in to participate in a combination. A cinematic approach is to throw lots of information in the foreground. I cannot tell you how daunting it was to attempt painting a mirror in behind this nameless actress so quickly. But I like the results. Also, at the same time this was painted, I was fighting for an illustration job. I chose the song on purpose, obviously.
