Hi all. I'm starting prep on a feature that has a lot of musical performances (a band playing a few songs in a club). I'm looking for inspiration! Mainly, I'd love to hear references for films that have memorable or innovative ways of shooting musicians and or band performances that really helps give accentuate the music they are performing. We have both fun, rollicking songs and quieter acoustic numbers so I'm interested in hearing the range of styles from verite concert photography to really polished choreographed shots. If you can think of any, please send them my way!

Thanks so much.

 

 

Best,

The Cannibal Corpse scene in Ace Ventura Pet Detective is certainly memorable. Check out this deleted extra where Ace joins the band onstage!
