What's up, readers? Today I'll talk about old stuff, well not too old, just stuff with 25 years... Let's take a trip back to 1990 when Madonna made the music video for her song Vogue. As you remember the music video, (we all remember the music video, right?), it was shot in black and white on film in the aspect ratio of 4:3. Still, the video is interesting to me in order to learn a bit about how to light a dramatic scene in black and white and to make it look good! Some of the shots are still memorable until today, and looks like during this month or so, someone published online 30 minutes of some of the takes that captured Vogue. These images include some fails and one or two scenes that were not used in the final cut of the video below. But first of all, take a look at the final music video, if haven't seen it yet... You had 25 years to watch it, I assume you know what I'm talkin' about!
Look at minute 3:56 and 4:18 and you'll see that in some scenes when Madonna is laid down with the background moving, a bit of Madonna's table is shown is the left side of the image. Looks like they hadn't got time to do some clean up, hehe (seriously, they had a bit more than a month to finish it, see on Wikipedia).
And now, enjoy this 30 minute video with lots of takes of Vogue! The images start after 10 seconds!
(Note: I searched online in order to find the original uploader, but unfortunately there's a few samples of this video online that I couldn't find who published it first, I choose the one with the best quality. In the future this video may not available, if that happens search online for "Madonna Vogue B Roll outtakes", or something like that and you may find another video.)
Here are some of my favorite highlights of the video:
