One of the most beautifully shot shows
Tomorrow the second and last part of our extensive interview with Peter Morse, the lighting designer of many Madonna tours will be finally online.
Today we give our readers an interesting preview from this chat we had with Mr Morse about the Blond Ambition footage that was shoot by director Alek Keshishian in Paris and used in the 1991 documentary Truth Or Dare.
Peter Morse: The fun part of working with Alek was that he was there the entire time as was I so when he was developing his ideas for the live shoot in Paris, he would sit and talk to me about things he needed to change or alter for the film shoot. The magic of that shoot is the fact we shot it on 35 millimiter film and that’s what made that so rich. To me, my favourite footage of anything I’ve been involved in, is that footage, because of the use of film opposed to video. We had some scary moments on Drowned World and it was all due to video. Film is so much more forgiving and it has a richer feel.
MadonnaTribe: Was the whole show shot on 35 mm film?
Peter Morse: I’d love to see some of that footage that wasn’t use. Because obviously only pieces were used. You know, the entire show is shot in 35mm and the irony is that it was never released and I think that it was probably one of the most beautifully shot shows.
