The Tag Team Match - Part 1

The tag team match was probably the most magical moment of the whole production process. Some of the matches had been carefully choreographed, some we pretty much "wung" on the fly, but everyone knew the order in which the matches were supposed to be, and the significance of each match. When it came time to shoot, and the performers began, there was no stopping them. They threw themselves into the scene with passion, energy, and commitment, and we just let it happen! Most of the footage you see here was from that one, 12-minute take (with three cameras). We did do some close-ups and pickups later, but in that one shot,I saw what can happen when preparation, passion, and enthusiasm all come together.
