Post The Stampede
The angles used in the animated film really help me get into the suspense and fear in that scene, but I feel like the stage version of it falls pretty flat. You don't see Simba watching his father fall, he's never really among the wildebeest in the stampede as they're all behind him, and all in all....just doesn't quite do it for me. Does anyone else here feel the same way?

A lot of them are behind him, but there's also two on each side of Simba in the same row as him.

In the film they surround him on all sides. That's what I meant. And having someone go in and put the harness on him and suddenly having him lifted into the tree...........didn't work for me.

It's really hard to restage such a scene isnt it? Cuz what made the scene so vastly successful in the movie was the cinematography, which, well, doesnt exist for stage works. I think if they can involve the audience in the stampede. Like, make it as if the stampede is over the audience's head or something, that would do the trick somewhat. Thought? :?:
