The floors were meant to be used as a photo studio and not as a , so we had issues with the bouncing of the floors which resulted in uncontrolled shaking of the cameras during all the performance pieces.

Overall we pulled together with a large crew of people and overcame a weekend shoot into just one day which clocked in at around 14 hours.
