West Side Story
“Since we were going to talk about music and film, I wanted to definitely choose a piece from my favorite musical, ‘West Side Story’…The camera’s in exactly the right place for every single shot, as far as capturing the choreography, telling the story, including the right characters at the right time. From the opening shot, you can see that the bars over to the side are going to end up, for the final verse, behind. The director is already thinking about where the entire number is going to go."
