Is Simultaneous Multi-Cam Recording the Future?

Episode 1626 (1:11:16)

Scott from Orange County, CA
Focus

Scott watched the recent Apple event and it got him thinking about multiple lenses/cameras shooting a film simultaneously during production. Leo describes the pain of shooting an interview with only one camera, where the reactions often come across as a bit fake. Scott explains how the movie Focus was screened in front of audiences using four different versions, and the final edit blended them together based on audience feedback. Leo believes more in auteur theory and artistic vision, but the possibility to combine filming styles is still there.
