|THE MORNING WATCHJAMES CORDENCROSSWALKMUSICAL,FROZEN|
The Morning Watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of noteworthy videos from around the web. They could be video essays, fanmade productions, featurettes, short films, hilarious sketches, or just anything that has to do with our favorite movies and TV shows.
In this edition, watch as stuntment recreate a fight scene from The Mandalorian with some low-rent props and visual effects in the middle of a dojo. Plus, Patrick H Willems, or rather some of his collaborators, put together a video essay on Labyrinth and the themes of capitalism in 1980s America, and you can get a lesson on how to draw a Walt Disney caricature.
First up, some professional stuntmen, with the help of some local cosplayers and propmakers, got together in Atlanta Judo Midtown to recreate a fight scene from The Mandalorian in a very low budget style. But the camera work and cheap digital effects make this video from Legend of Micah a little more stylish than your average sweded video elsewhere on the web.
Next up, since things are crazy right now with coronavirus, Patrick H Willems takes a backseat to video essays this week. Instead, his collaborators Jake and Matt took advantage of the situation to do a video essay about the 1980s cult favorite Labyrinth starring David Bowie and how it fights back against the idea of greed being good.
Finally, Walt Disney Animation Studios animation supervisor Michael Woodside sat down to teach you how to draw a Disney-Style caricature of Walt Disney himself. It’s all in honor of the annual caricature show curated by the studio, and it’ll help you pass the time while you’re stick at home with nothing to do. Maybe you can even try to draw a caricature of someone else like this too.
Late night shows and concerts have been upended in recent weeks, but that isn't stopping James Corden and Elton John from providing fans with new entertainment in these quarantined times.
CBS announced that it will air a new primetime special from “Late Late Show” host Corden on Monday, March 30 at 10 p.m. ET, while John is gearing up to host a live concert special on Fox on March 29 at 9 p.m. ET.
The set of “Homefest: James Corden's Late Late Show Special” might be the comedian's garage, but the star-studded show will include musical performances from artists throughout the globe. South Korea's BTS will perform, as will Italy's Andrea Bocelli and London's Dua Lipa. Billie Eilish with FINNEAS and John Legend will also perform. All artists will stream their performances from their homes. David Blaine and Will Ferrell are among the other celebrities expected to appear in the special.
Music aside, Corden and his guests will urge viewers to follow government advice to socially isolate and stay healthy and will also provide details on how to donate money to The CDC Foundation and Feed the Children.
“Since 'The Late Last Show' came off the air, we have been thinking of different ways to try and make a show at this time,” executive producers Ben Winston and Rob Crabbe said in a statement. “With the help of some wonderful guests, we are going to try to put on the best show we can, to entertain, raise awareness, raise money and hopefully lift spirits. Shooting from James' garage may be far from perfect, but under the circumstances we hope it can help someone, somewhere, who needs some cheer right now.”
Like Corden's special, John's upcoming Fox show will feature an array of musical performances and will also encourage viewers to raise money for charitable organizations. Eilish also will perform during John's show, as will Alicia Keys, Backstreet Boys, Billie Joe Armstrong, Mariah Carey, Tim McGraw, and others. All artists will perform at home and additional performers will be announced soon.
John's special will air during the iHeartRadio Music Awards' original broadcast timeslot and will be commercial-free. The program will encourage viewers to support Feeding America and the First Responders Children's Foundation, which help the ongoing pandemic's victims and first responders, respectively. Fox will offer the event across all of its linear and digital platforms to extend the reach of the special's charitable component.
The singer gave 'Crosswalk the Musical' a concert twist as he performed 'Kiwi,' 'Lights Up,' 'Watermelon Sugar' and 'Sign of the Times' during the 'Late Late Show' segment.
Harry Styles gave "Crosswalk the Musical" a concert twist during Wednesday's episode of The Late Late Show.
The segment opened with James Corden attempting to sell the singer on the idea. The host explained that other talk shows close down busy streets for their musical guests to perform, so he thought it would be fun for Styles to put on a concert on the crosswalk outside of the CBS studios.
"Close this whole street down for me to perform a concert? That's amazing," said Styles. Corden later explained that they "would be closing down the crosswalk when the light is red." The host continued, "You will have access to that for 30 seconds at a time ... along with anyone else that wants to use it."
In a private interview, Styles said he didn't want to do the segment and that it was an "insane" idea. Corden responded, "You know who didn't think it was insane? The Beatles. What do you think Abbey Road was all about?"
Corden eventually convinced Styles to perform the "Crosswalk Concert." The host recruited a team of dancers, crew members, roadies and stagehands for the performance, though he forgot to bring in Styles' band for the segment. Styles also noted that he never uses dancers at his concerts, but Corden insisted they perform with the singer.
Before the performers took to the crosswalk, Styles and Corden handed out flyers to drivers stuck in traffic. Corden sang "Sign of the Times" to promote the show, while Styles approached drivers and said, "There's a show today. Don't know why."
Corden led the performers in prayer before their first number. "Dear heavenly father, please bless this concert tonight," he began. "Should one of them enter harm's way or be hit by an oncoming car, please let it be one of the dancers."
Styles and the four guitar players then made their way to the center of the crosswalk, where the singer stood on a platform and sang "Kiwi" from his 2017 self-titled album. The dancers later joined the performance, which also included fire being shot near a sign that read the singer's name.
Corden stood on the sidewalk and directed the performance. One of his notes was for Styles to channel his inner Mick Jagger, so the singer strutted between the cars and grinded against the hood of one car.
Before the second performance, Corden approached cars to sell merchandise.
Styles next sang "Lights Up," which Corden felt was best represented through modern dance. The singer stood in the middle of the crosswalk as Corden wore a bright yellow suit and cape. The host swayed his arms back and forth along to the beat of the...
