Move The Frame

Move the Frame is the official blog of Pentacle’s Movement Media, a project serving to help dance and media artists make dances for screen and use media to market their dance work more effectively. Move the Frame is a locus for dialogue about the form and a clearing-house of information about all things dance and media related.

This blog is dedicated to supporting and promoting videodance, a hybrid of dance and media arts, also known as dance film, cinedance, screendance, and kinodance.

I started Move the Frame in 2004 as a television show for cable access in New York City where I showcased short videodances from around the world and featured interviews with different directors and choreographers.

Now as a blog, Move the Frame serves as a public forum to show and discuss many aspects of videodance including, but not limited to: the state of the art, practices and examples from around the world, its history, its impact on and relationship to live dance performance, artistic & theoretical concepts, production tips, fundraising, marketing & distribution, and profiles of different artists.

The videodance world is small, but growing rapidly. We welcome your comments, whether you are a veteran dance film-maker, or someone who has never seen this kind of work before. Diverse points of view and experience levels are encouraged. Let me know about videodances you’ve seen, made, or are working on right now. If you have a call for submissions, article, idea of story to share, please email me.

Special thanks to SizeGenetics of Austin, Texas, US. to sponsor the domain, hosting and development of Move the Frame.
