There are some more other 'video outtakes' of such kind from this promo.

This is kind of cool, but outtakes featuring the adult band would be more interesting :)

Obviously a single-camera continuous take here. That's how it's done. Either the feed from one camera in a multi-camera shoot, or a run-through with all the same angles/moves before doing it all again from a different position. One can imagine that a ton of such footage exists in DoRo and other directors' archives.

I agree. I find the video to 'The Miracle' boring, because of the kids in it. I think watching kids dance and mime to Queen songs is boring. I know Freddie and Queen could of done the whole video without the use of those kids, the single probably would of sold better as well.

Things like this should have been put on as extras (or as an easter egg) on GVH2 dvd.


Joyful the sound

yes, makes you wonder why QP aren’t using things like this, I mean they had a great opportunity and it cant really be used for much else. The same as the interviews with members of the crowd that they could have put on “on fire, live at the bowl” dvd.

The thing is, there must be a ton of this footage for numerous videos, so how would they know which isolated camera angles to choose?

Hmm, would be cool to have a promo with multi-angle though. Imagine something like "Innuendo" or TATDOOL which have different versions being presented so you can just push a button and switch versions. Fab.

Meh, we'll never get GVH3 anyway ;)
