Watch: Extended Feature on singing Les Miserables

In this feature, the cast of Les Miserables and director Tom Hooper discuss their innovative filming style. They have the actors live sing every scene, instead of lip syncing pre-recorded songs. I found it fascinating.

It certainly made me want to see the movie even more. I’ve just bought tickets to the stage play for myself and my family in early December. We’ll be all ready for the movie when it comes out Christmas Day. (H/T to Joseph Susanka for the link).
