Q. Mr. Oracle,
I realize that in the Lost+ music video there is a double video shot. Is that true and I would like to know where is the place was? I realize at the beginning of the video I see Chris wear a white shirt whereas Guy wear a red shirt with a black vest. After Chris put down the guitar, the video switch into the two of them wear another shirt like coat they always wear it also appear Will and Jonny.
Oh..another one, I see the first video like an old view and the stage exactly almost the same!
Thanks for answer my question.
The Oracle replies:
The videos were directed by Mat Whitecross and filmed at United Center in Chicago on 22nd/23rd July 2008.
It's quite usual for live videos to be a hybrid of 2 shows where possible. It means that the director can give it a different feel just by using shots from both nights. The Live DVD 2003 was filmed over 2 nights also.
With the Lost videos Chris starts the song without his jacket and takes it off as he starts singing but the differences are very subtle. Obviously the main difference is the onstage television set, used to good effect to incorporate Jay Z's rap.
