A. Screendance Workshops
These workshops explore the genre of Screendance. The workshops are based on the unique shooting technique designed by Jeannette Ginslov namely, Camera As….Loading The Frame In Screendance. This was inspired by Ginslov's research on: Aristotle’s notion of Rhetoric, dance filmmaker Douglas Rosenberg’s “camera as carnivore” and Ginslov's research on capturing Affect. A workshop on editing, DVD production, uploading, documenting and archiving your work, could also be arranged.
For examples of previous workshop outcomes see:

Camera As….Loading The Frame In Screendance
This process highlights affect and the intention of the screendance maker. It amplifies the audience’s reception and appreciation of the emotional and kinesthetic, in a non-linear narrative framework. Through a series of shooting exercises, using formal as well as experimental or improvised shooting methodologies, static and hand-held camera, with story boards or scores for an improvised shoot. The workshops focuses on the use of postmodern dance practice as well as the cinematic genre of Dogme 95 and a non-linear filmic practice.

1) Online Video Production
MoveStream provides an interdisciplinary platform that investigates the crossover between the boundaries usually found in media/dance/cinema/video and the internet 2.0. It provides a fresh and adaptive evolving domain for the public to engage with culture, choreography and performance. As a networked phenomenon, it encourages a much needed flow and exchange in Screendance discourse. It offers a new Screening portal for Screendance makers with the possibility of developing new online performance vocabularies that reposition dance performance as a multi-sited, digitally mediated art form. Ease of accessibility encourages viewers to engage with the ontologies that are foregrounded in the interviews. It also serves as an open archive for Screendance works, preserving the past with the capability of re-informing the present.
Video interviews and vlogs of performances can be produced for festivals, conferences, workshops etc. This could work in tandem with dance-tech.netTV. Teams of vloggers can be trained to shoot and upload material from the festivals onto dance-tech.netTV
