  1. So I'm really curious how the IBC/MPC works... Do companies pay to get different studio plots in the IBC? What do the other broadcasting studios look like? How is the IBC and MPC laid out?
  2. My understanding is Balich was just an advisor on the project. His social media definitely didn't convey any sort of excitement for the opening. I feel like a lot of the team lost all hope on it. Do we know which company was lead producer on it?
  3. Took a nap. Woke up and thought: These games should've been cancelled. The coverage is still COVID COVID COVID. It's better to cancel something this large than do it half-assed. The athletes deserve better, the city deserves better, and the Japanese people deserve better. The conversation should have refocused to awarding them 2032 a long time ago.
  4. Because there is a heavy global influence through the IOC and even the Producers that they consult with. I believe we are in a new chapter of a more globalist illustration of the country during each cycle. I second this. I was just thinking this. IF IT GETS RID OF THE DUMB ALL WHITE FLOORS AND PROPS, THEN I'M HERE FOR IT! I couldn't agree more. The lack of cohesion was a big negative for me this time around. We also saw that in PC and Rio. Overall I think it was the best it could be given the circumstances. There is no doubt that it was grounded in and a reflection of the times. NBC's coverage make it hard to judge because they like to comment on things through a diluted American lens (not to mention the stupid commercial interruptions). They shoulda put the athletes in the stands. They shoulda cut the speeches shorter. I woulda had Matsui light the cauldron. I wish there was a drumming segment. Not a fan of the Imagine segment. It was nice, but overdone in the sports world. I think the lighting, cinematography, pyro were all good. The athlete fashion was great! The choreography in the beginning artistic segments was fantastic as well. I liked the Olympic Rings segement. It reminded me of a mix of Tin Symphony and Pandemonium (on a budget). The stairs coming out of the cauldron and it blossoming was very emotional. The costumes were so-so. I understand the benefits of a straight run for the PON, but I like the traditional lap around the stadium. I'd give it a 6/10.
  5. Surely they could've socially distanced everyone in the stadium stands.
  6. I NEED A STREAM WITHOUT COMMERCIALS also loving the lighting, fashion, choreography, and story so far.
  7. Sydney Athens London are my Top 3. Atlanta and PyeongChang are my Bottom 2.
  8. I hate those stupid white ovals on the fop for every ceremony for the last decade. YAWN!
  9. Looking at Marco Balich's insta, it looks like he's a producer on the show. I SMELL AN ELECTRIC CAULDRON!
  10. Yang might not be on the list, but she is forever in our hearts.
  11. I was hoping someone would vote Beijing for Young Artist loooooooooooooooooooool!
  12. Is it the Games are hated or is it the way in which the Government is handling the pandemic is hated? Because the narrative here is that the Japanese are pissed with the Government in the handling of the pandemic and still chose to host the Games. Because to me... with the low vaccination rate, it sounds like the Japanese Government is doing a terrible job with vaccine distribution.
  13. Because most of the Europe has countries with 50%+ with at least one dose of the vaccine. Japan is way behind. At this stage in the game, I'd say there is no comparison.
  14. Here are my votes! Best Cauldron Design London 2012. Kinetic, Modern take on a traditional structure. Best Placard and Costume Combo for a Parade of Nations Rio 2016. Fun, flashy, different, kinetic. Best Performance of a National Anthem Human Nature & Julie Anthony - Sydney 2000 Best Cauldron Lighting London 2012. Very emotional handing it off to young athletes. Loved the music and it was directed well. Best Execution of a Parade of Nations Athens 2004 Outstanding Solo Performance by a Young Artist Nikki Webster - Sydney 2000

  16. The newer pop/rock guys like Maneskin, Irama, Mahmood, etc, will probably be for the closing... if theyre still relevant in 5 years. Andrea will certainly be a part of the Opening. I'd assume Balich will probably win the bid on this one and get all of the big names.
  17. Well if you don't agree you should first acquaint yourself with how things are currently going and give constructive criticism so I can fix it. You obviously care enough to check in on the process so why not just say something. If you're still upset on the words "Best" and "Outstanding" used in this, than that's not something I can help you with.
