Glee: The 3D Concert Movie depicts a Glee Cast concert in East Rutherford, New Jersey during the group’s Glee Live! In Concert! tour. It features behind-the-scenes footage, and a setlist of songs from the show’s first and second seasons. As well as the behind-the-scenes footage, the film portrays the series’ influence on teenagers, including one who is gay named Trenton, one with Asperger syndrome named Josey Pickering, and a cheerleader with short stature named Janae.The fan segments were created by documentary filmmaker Jennifer Arnold.

Background & Filming

During May in 2010, the Glee cast traveled across the country on a concert tour, where they performed the songs from the show. They held a total of 13 concerts, all which sold-out. Following the very successful North American tour, a European tour was announced in November the same year, and further North American dates were added for May and June 2011. In early May 2011, it was announced that 20th Century Fox and series creator Ryan Murphy would together produce a 3-D film of the tour, directed by Kevin Tancharoen and shot during the North American leg.

Filmed on June 16–17, 2011, at the Meadowlands Arena in East Rutherford, New Jersey, Glee: The 3D Concert Movie was shot with the Cameron-Pace Group’s 3D Fusion camera system. Glen MacPherson served as director of photography, and utilised seven Fusion 3D rigs with a range of set-ups, including a Cablecam, Steadicam, and Technocrane. The digital cinematography cameras held by the rigs mainly comprised a combination of Arri Alexas and Red Epics. CPG CEO Vince Pace noted, “One of the biggest challenges that we were able to overcome was the way these cameras are handled in a live production environment (compared with a feature shoot). The infrastructure of (CPG’s mobile 3D production truck) had to accommodate the multiple camera formats and process them as a single format. That is not common in the broadcast world.” The production truck was updated accordingly, and acquired, amongst other new technology items, a Kayenne Video Production Center production switcher, which allowed for the creation of line cuts—explained by Vince as cuts “created live and used to capture the energy at the time of the performance.” He cited this as a factor which helped enable the film’s completion with just a six-week post-production schedule. Though Pace would not disclose the project’s budget when interviewed by The Hollywood Reporter, he said that it was around 40% lower than previous 3D concert films, and narrowed the cost gap between 2D productions and CPG’s earlier 3D works, such as Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert and Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience. Such budget was later revealed by The Hollywood Reporter to be $9 million.
