View Full Version : Camera angles-when did it start?

4th May 2014, 21:54
Well into the 70s the ESC was still basically filmed staged performances, without much thought to how it would look in TV specifically. When exactly do you think they started to work camera angles and other TV-only effects into the entries, and began to specifically stage them for looking good on the screen rather than on stage? Was there a sudden transition, or more gradual? Are there any particular entries you think were groundbreaking in this aspect?
