Michos Takes On Music and Dance With OConnor for Langston Hughes Memoire Black Nativity Posted: 24/10/2013
Music and dance are a big part of the contemporary adaptation of Langston Hughes holiday musical drama, Black Nativity. It follows Langston (Jacob Latimore), a street-wise teen from Baltimore as he journeys to New York City to spend the Christmas holiday with his estranged grandparents. While attending his Grandfathers church production of Black Nativity, Langston falls asleep and escapes into a dreamscape of song, dance, and a little divine intervention. Practically every dance or song number relied on instinct and the ability to whip pan. Snap zoom, or even grab the focus in the process of discovering the most dynamic shots, says cinematographer Anastas Michos, ASC. Thats where my favorite support the OConnor 2575 was invaluable. OConnor is part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company.
