Partnering with Camera / Physical and Visual Imagination
Bearnstow, Mt. Vernon Maine
This workshop will explore how the interaction of camera and movement creates kinetic imagery capable of expressing something beyond the frame. We will cultivate the relationship between movement and visual elements , creating dance films that explore relationships. This workshop will allow participants to work with physical imagination, storyboarding, and hands’ on camera work, finding an individual expression of vocabulary . Each day will include a physical morning class, , followed by afternoons developing studies for film: investigating site specific locations, and choreographing for the camera to find a unique language in dance/visual vocabulary realized through the lens.
All levels of experience are welcome. Video-cameras recommended.
