So I've been home this week doing a bunch of painting, crown molding and other kinds of fun and I happen to pass by the TV which I left on from the noon news and I caught the first 5 minutes of "All My Children". Does anyone know how they shoot this? It had a much different look than what I remember soaps looking like. The show had a much more "film look" about it. It didn't look like the brightly lit videotaped shows that I remember. They were also making use of hand held cameras. What kind of process is used? I assume they are still using videotape because film would be very expensive. Is this the norm for soap these days or does AMC shoot things differently? Just curious.
