Hi there,

Can anyone help me figure out how the mirrors are set up in this live Eartha Kitt performance?
There are basically three shots in the piece, the opening side-on shot, a nearly front-on MCU and a wide shot looking down.

I am particularly interested in the MCU (first appears around the 50sec mark) that features a reflection of Eartha facing forward yet swaying in the opposite direction from her actual body. It's beautiful (so too are the other shots with repeating reflection leading off in the distance) and while it might be a relatively simple setup, I can't get my head around it, please help!

THANKS A LOT IN ADVANCE.
