The stage is my studio
I feel the artist's adrenaline every time I'm back stage. I observe how they vibe with others and how locked in they are. I do my best on channeling that same mood once they hit the stage. Without giving up too much, I look for detail; attention to detail is the key. I look for moments and great facial expressions. I also anticipate an artist movement on stage. It's kind of like being on a fast break in basketball. The trick is to always past the ball in front of your moving teammate that way he or she catches the ball in the right spot. That's my approach with a performer. They're in constant movement. They're giving me ALL of the shots, I just have to catch it. When that happens, we both win.
