Yes, I know the song is not good. Seriously, it has four words. And the costumes are hilarious.
But watch how the cinematographer shot the video. It’s ONE LONG TRACKING SHOT. There’s like 50 dancers in it, with Janet Jackson singing, dancing and moving between three different rooms. There’s complicated choreography and blocking, dark lighting. Not one cut-away, zoom or transition. It’s ridiculous.
In the frenetic world of music video production, this kind of one-shot structure is almost unheard of except by artsy, indie productions.
I wonder how many takes the video took?
