An enlightening workshop that investigates the relationship between the camera and the dancer. Participants will analyze film clips and partake in a series of hands-on exercises throughout the week. Discussions on strategies such as how to achieve a cinematic look in films, the importance of sound design, adapting a stage work for the camera, and why some types of dance work better on camera than others will also take place.
Participants will have the opportunity to create a screendance study, but will need to provide your own camera (DSLRs are welcome), however a finished project is not expected. Participants are also encouraged to bring their own work if they would like feedback. The recommended reading for the workshop is Making Video Dance by Katrina McPherson (this is not required).
