Sri MGR Year 95, 7th October, Sunday
Below is the video clips from MGR’s 100th movie Olivilakku. The video clip further goes into the introduction of other characters first the old women and other characters of Muthu’s (MGR) neighbours. Followed by Cho’s introduction.
(Watch the one take of MGR, Cho conversation scene)
When I was editing the video clip I found something odd about MGR and Cho conversation scene, it appeared to me as a single take when I watched again there was 3 shots but on closer observation they have used two cameras and the scene was one take with 3 shots combined.
The scene starts from 1.16, there was two cameras one on MGR side mounted on trolley and another on Cho side. When the scene starts the camera on MGR side, first camera,(position A) zooms in on two characters i.e. MGR and Cho, the second camera cuts in with close up of Cho and MGR and now the first camera (moved from the earlier position A to B) cuts in with zooming out, trolleys from MGR and Cho. Since both the actors are drama artist it is simple for them to execute this scene.
Other video clips will follow soon.
