I just watched the whole thing, and it was epic! Loved the backstage chats with the actors and crew. It was fascinating to see all the behind-the-scenes stuff for this production, and all the performers and crew seemed like really great, nice, funny people. The titles/captions were great, and I loved the chat with Raoul's costumer (M.A. in dressing and undressing, XD) and the resulting use of Raph's picture. Laughing

Again, awesome job, and thanks so much for posting it for us! What program did you use to edit it? (I thought I recognized one of the random music bits from FinalCut Pro, but just in case I'm wrong.)

Yes. sunny

But hopefully they'll see the mockumentary is to their benefit as such, and neither approve nor remove it.

When it comes to much of what we've filmed, we've tried to focus it on persons rather than production stuff. Of course there is a bit of both, but a lot of what we did is interviews with people whom we asked in advance if they wanted and could participate. The exception is in large the opening and some of the stuff with Tomas Kofod. And just to clarify: the theatre had nothing to do with the filming. We thank them in the end merely because of the location and the effort of bringing Phantom on a Scandinavian stage, but they are in no way involved.

RUG see something fan made to their benefit? Hmmmm scratch LOL

I've been backstage at the Majestic a handful of times.. and when it came to things like tours, I seem to recall them having a strict no filming/photography schpeal. But of course with individual actors it's a different story. Either way though.. you guys did a fantastic job!

Thank you for the feedback! Very Happy The people we interviewed really carry much of the mockumentary, and they were all as nice as they seemed. Especially considering most of it was filmed either close to midnight or right before the show started - it was kind of them to not just take the time to contribute, but also be enthusiastic about it. And it it actually true that the conductor named his daughter Christine, after Christine Daaé!

iMovies was used for the final editing, and I would recommend it to any amateur editor. It's so user friendly, and with lots of possibilities. Granted, it's the only one I've ever tried, but... Hehe... But some of the music and sound effects might be identical for various programs?

InkedAlchemist, thanks for the kind words!

And Josefine! She did half the job - and was a great interviewer. Very Happy

But I'm very glad you liked it, and thank you so much for your contribution.

I finally got around to watching it! You gals did a fantastic job.

Favorite Parts:
- Music of the Night in a glass
- Everything with Preben - especially his talking about how sweet he was - followed by "She has to. She must!", and the immortal Phantom story
- Haakon talking about dressing and undressing (Hey, do you know if he's available? Rawr Wink)
- Tomas is such a sweetheart
- Loved the composer, he's fun, cool that he named his daughter after Christine!

Bah, loved everything. Too bad the costume shop wasn't open! You would have had a field day.

Well done! Very Happy

Thank you for your nice comments!! It makes me so happy that you like it, that people like it. We put a lot of work into it. And yes, Preben Krisensen did an amazing interview, I wish we could include it all. He was so in character. Everything was on one take, totally without script, almost midnight, and he just delivered... But yes, Tomas really is a sweetheart, he had a good heart that bloke. And Per Engström! And... Aaaaaw, I miss the Danish production.

Haakon isn't listed as single on FB. Bleeeeh... Wink I guess masters of dressing and undressing are far and few, haha!

That interview with Preben was fantastic to do. I was crazy during those interviews and sometimes I managed to throw people off track with my questions, but not him Laughing . He completely ruled that interview.

We asked him if he would like to do it while he was in make up before the show. I tried to ask him in Danish and I was kinda nervous that he wouldn't want to, because as I've understood it he is quite a star in Denmark, but he was lovely and said yes immediately.

Ha-ha, I remember we thought he was a bit snotty at first when we asked, cause he didn't even look at us when he talked to us. But it turned out he was in the process of getting his Phantom deformity applied, so he couldn't move his head... Laughing

Yeah and me trying to ask him in Danish. Later I found out that he speaks really good Swedish, much better than my Danish. Haha.

Just wanted to say that the Phantom mockumentary (at least part 1) has passed 430 views on YouTube. The others aren't too far behind.

It's impressive considering how long each clip is, and how much I suspect one would have to watch before YouTube register it as a proper view - I don't think it's enough to just click the link. Anyone knows for sure?

I sent the link to the mockumentary to Annika Bartler who was Mme Giry in the Stockholm production. She loved it too, but wondered where Mme Giry was in it Very Happy .

That's so awesome! Yeah, there's too little Giry in the video, guilty as charged. Lots of people has said afterwards that they would have loved to join the mockumentary, but at the time I was in awe that someone wanted to at all!

We'll have to make a Giry special if DNT ever do Phantom again... Laughing

Really, I didn't know that, how cool! I've just been happy that the people who did join seem to like it so much. Who has said that they wanted to join?

From the top of my head "Green lady" and "Lille abe", and one of the technicians. I mean, I would have loved to have them in the mockumentary, but I just had no idea people wanted to join! That said, they might have felt that way after the saw the finished result, and not when we were filming... Ha-ha! Laughing

Love it! How great wouldn't it have been to have Lille abe, as Lille abe in costume. Oh, the possibilities.
