If you haven’t noticed, numerous musical films have had sizable concert scenes. These movies contain situations when the use of CG visual effects, genuine video, and careful preparation helped create much-needed, lively audience cheering. Singer Jack Malik (Himesh Patel) rose to fame on “Yesterday” by performing Beatles songs that everyone else seemed to have forgotten.
He once gave them a performance at Wembley Stadium. The actual crowd is utilised in the movie rather than a computer-generated one or a replica of one.
“As for the enthusiasm that director Danny Boyle sought to elicit from the crowd, we all thought it would be tough to carry off with a plethora of CG due to its random nature,” VFX Visual Effects Supervisor Adam Gascoyne remarked.
The spectators get completely berserk during musical performances, and you can actually feel the intensity. The crew proceeded to work all night long to capture Patel on stage with the same lighting setup after Sheeran ended and departed the stadium. Nine planned camera placements around the stadium, together with other motion cameras, will enable the crew to record Jack’s performance.
