Amazing Video/Sound Of Music Theme

Tue Jun 23, 2009 8:30 am

Has anyone else seen this video on YouTube? Their website shows 5,510,065 views. I did a search in Non-Av and did not find anything close.

It is probably the most amazing video I have ever seen.

Was wondering how long it would take for that one to show up here. This was filmed in Antwerp Central Station, and it was done to promote the TV-programme 'Op zoek naar Maria' ('The search for Maria'), a sort of talent show where they looked for an actress to play the main part in the Belgian version of the stage musical 'The Sound of Music'. I believe this was not the first time something like this was done: a few years ago, a similar thing was done in a station in the UK, if I'm not mistaken. Fun video though!

- When was this video taken? It was wonderfully done, they obviously had several cameras working. I'm sure the management knew about it before hand, why else would the sound/song been on a public address system? I usually do not get this interested in a video like I am, but this was well done.

It was done on March 23. Apparently took some 4 weeks preparation; they had 200 dancers, and 10 hidden cameras were rolling, located all over the central ticket hall of the station.

In fact, here's a video with the 'making of' of the stunt:

And here's the dance from another camera, in which you can hear the actual clapping, shouting and singing by the dancers on the ground:

"Do Re Mi" is hardly the theme of The Sound of Music. The "theme," if you want to call it that, is "The Sound of Music," which opens the show.

- What I meant was the theme of this thread was that a beautiful song from a wonderful music was at the heart of the idea, not the song being the actual theme song of that wonderful musical.

I just watched the first hour of the movie/DVD of The Sound Of Music and now I have a new appreciation for this video clip. Again well done Ladies and Gentlemen.
