Often times when I am watching live performances of one of my idols, I get frustrated by the fact that the cameramen who film the videos seem to think that: 1) repeating the same dizzying camera trick a billion times is cool, 2) seeing the audience for sixty percent of the video is awesome, 3) having a zoned out shot for half the performance is amazing. If it weren’t for the fact that these broadcasting companies have HD videos, and less fans screaming into the camera mic, I’d actually opt for the option of a fancam instead because at least the video is somewhat steady and fans know who and what to capture at certain times.
I do realize that they can’t have perfect shots all the time, but would you really want to be looking at an audience for half the video and only seeing glimpses of your favourite artists? The following example would be perfect example of the type of live performance that I’d rather watch a fancam for because I couldn’t even see half the performance:
