What’s changed in Rehearsal Two?
Rehearsing right now inside the Ahoy Arena is Barbara Pravi, performing “Voila” for France. Here is what has changed since the first rehearsal, and what the team thinks of the changes.
Barbara’s rehearsal has had very few minor changes to the overall concept they had in the first run-throughs. Barbara is now more lit up in the second half of the song, so we can see her more on stage. The camera angles are also a lot tighter, with a blur on her hand at the end of the second chorus. In the final chorus, the “unsteady cam” does a 360 degree turn around Barbara, allowing the viewer to see the audience (likely to have their flashlights on). The final shot is a lot more steady, as Barbara throws her arms up in the air and shouts “Voila!”. A ready-to-go-package that, while simple, is incredibly effective.
In case you missed it…
