A Clever, Single-Take Video on the Classical Origins of the Star Trek Theme
I learned something today.
This video, from CBC Music (Canada’s NPR, according to the producer who sent it to me) could have just given a musical history lesson and left it at that, but it’s also shot so seamlessly with host Tom Allen moving around, upstairs and down, that you totally forget his musicians would have to be scrambling behind the scenes to seamlessly appear in each new location.
So come for the secret origins of the Star Trek theme – and stay for the filmmaking.
