A good collection of videos spanning Miss Brightman's extensive repertoire. Shame therefore that the links between videos are spoiled by a crass and gimmicky style of shooting. Why was it considered necessary to wave the camera around while Sarah is talking to us and introducing her videos? There are multiple shots of the crew and the set too. Drawing attention to the technology in this way is gimmicky, distracting, unnecessary and tragically infantile. I long for the day when this fashion for deliberately waving the camera aimlessly around will be considered as hackneyed as filming reflections in shiny car hubcaps. It certainly distracts from what Sarah has to say about her work and I am surprised that she and her people sanctioned it.
