PHOTO: DEMS TO USE TRICK PHOTOGRAPHY TO FILL CONVENTION HALL?
breitbart ^ | 09/03/12 | JOHN NOLTE

Posted on 09/03/2012 10:41:57 AM PDT by barmag25

Call it "The Empty Chair Convention." Rick Klein, Senior Washington Editor of ABC News, just tweeted out this photo of the stage the Democrat convention will be held on (posted above).

As you can see, Klein's photo reveals the screens that will serve as the television backdrop behind whoever's speaking -- and it looks to me as though the Democrats intend to show an artificial sea of faces in order to make the convention hall look a whole lot more fuller than it might be.

If you look closely, they have three tiers of adoring, enraptured Obama-worshippers at the ready should they need them.

There's a lot of talk and concern amongst Democrats and their Media Palace Guards that for his big acceptance speech Thursday night, President Obama might not be able to fill the Bank of America stadium. There are also reports that Democrat operatives have been reduced to handing out free tickets to the event at bars and elsewhere -- probably in a frantic last minute attempt to fill seats.

Should’ve known. They’re going to use CGI to “fill” Bank of America stadium for Obama’s nomination acceptance speech.

Republicans should have a free concert with Lynard Skynard with free beer two blocks away from the fascist rally.

"Long before Clint Eastwood forever branded Obama a "empty chair," the President has been plagued by the disturbing optics of a one-time political rock star no longer able to pack a house."

EMPTY CHAIR IS RELAXING ENJOYING A JOINT BEFORE HIS EMPTY DAY.

Look at the picture on the screen, then look at the crowd in only one section behind and to the left being filmed. This is going to be the screenshots we get shown on tv. Being pre-filmed so it looks full.

Heh heh...they dare not show even ONE empty seat now, lest someone make an (obviously racist) remark about “empty chairs”... ;-)

And hey, “Empty Chair!, Empty Chair!” makes a pretty decent chant too...

They will be back on election day with a great number of their friends.

You’d think they’d let all the convention goers camp out in tents with the occupy wall street gang in some city park without toilets. That would seem appropriate for their convention.

Geeze. They can't even pay real people to show up. That's pathetic (but great for our side).

Glad breitbart pointed this out before the convention. Hope it goes viral fast.

They’re just not making it worthwhile. Buying votes costs at least cigarettes. To actually go to a convention they’d have to pay those bums serious cash

By sheer coincidence (visiting one of my kids who attends OSU) we were driving west on Lane Ave. (which goes right past this arena) across the river around noontime, were stopped by a traffic cop and diverted north on Olentangy River Road. It seemed funny at the time because there was no indication of what was going on nor any back up of traffic from any direction despite the diversion. The area around the arena was dead quiet with less overall traffic than one would normally see at anytime during daylight hours. I only found out after we got home that Obama had had a rally there to mark the official launch of his campaign. "Empty" is the perfect metaphor for this presidency. They are running on empty, launched their campaign in a two thirds empty arena, with an empty headed VP, and now are irretrievably symbolized by the image of an empty chair.

In the film biz it is called “tiling”.
What you do is lock the camera on a wide shot, then a section of bleachers is filled and filmed. The people are then randomized in another section and the shot is filmed again. This process is repeated until all the sections have been shot. Then the Computer Graphics guys stitch all the shots together to make it look like a packed stadium.
