Film Making Notes on my new films - Line Dances (seven cinematic journeys).


Line Dances is a sense filled journey for the viewer. Reaching back to Modernism, and forward to the future. Klee said “One eye sees, the other feels”. This statement sits at the heart of what I hope to achieve with these films. Dance is as much visual as it is physical. Watching dance unfold live or on screen is emotive. Capturing the body moving on film holds the dance in time. Like a… Continue

Hello Daniel,
Thanks for finding me. I ve seen your work and I liked it really much! I have a special interest in old film (8mm,16mm silent BW) and I ve enjoyed a lot the fusion you create, especially with Ato-Mick but also in your kinesthetic signature.
Best, V.

Hi Daniel, Dont know whether or not you remember me - I have been following your work for some time now and have always found it thoroughly engagaging and immersive. In short - love it. As something of a hybrid myself, practicing between the visually and performatively inscribed, I respect and enjoy your directions to fuse, morph, relate, contrast across the spectrum of what could be 'performed' as art. Great to see you in here. I have my MA in dance and video work in here as well as my site: http://hoststranger.blogspot.com

Best, Mike Baker
