My only real thoughts about the cloak are more to do with the vfx. To be clear, I don’t solely mean digital vfx. Thinking about what can be done ‘in camera’, what it contributes to the editing. As she spins, does each sweep of her cloak across the scene provide the opportunity for a cut to the one under her spell, to tie a visual link between the act of the dance and its effect? Does it cut to another key storyline for comparison sake in some extended montage? How is it being used visually to progress story as well as looking cool in the moment? I’m less interested in it’s material make up and lighting for its own merit at this stage and more concerned with what it offers to the viewer to help understand the power of magic in the world? For example, if an evil king were to being put under a spell by a good wizard while at the same one that evil king’s fortress were being assaulted and brought down by the good wizard’s knight friend, then cutting between the spell, it’s direct effect, and the symbolic destruction of the king’s stronghold would tie it all together and be dramatic, show the stakes, show the heroes triumph and emphasise how crucial magic is. If the evil king broke free from the spell, even for a moment, the tension is SUPER high then as it’s no longer just about the wizard, but OH NO, what if the good knight feels the king’s wrath of he defeats the wizard? So how can we use the moment for the dance to tell story, not just in terms of events happening but specially, how can a dance as a visual medium help do this?
