Director Of Beyonce's Halftime Show Reveals The Hard Work That Went Into It
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.06.2013



In an interview with The Guardian, Hamish Hamilton, director of Beyonce's halftime show at the Super Bowl, talked about all of the work that went into the show and denied that the blackout was Beyonce's fault.

On the problems with the performance: "We had technical issues. We had a camera on air that just decided to fall off its mount I've never had that happen before but it is the Super Bowl, and we covered it up beautifully."

On the moments of blind panic: "There is an incredible sense of fear. Then determination, and then blind panic. It is a ludicrous proposition: there are teams of staging units stretching down the tunnel and into the parking lot and thousands of people praying they make it to the right place in time. I'm in a truck watching it happen, and hoping and praying that the stage gets out, [that] the connections are all made, and that everything is in location. Thousands of things can go wrong."

On the show's LED effects and multiple Beyonces: "I don't remember whose idea it was. It has been done before, but never at a Super Bowl, and never in eight minutes. It required very clever technical expertise; precise choreography and cameras being in the right place. It was a marriage of many different skills and creative thought."
