Presentation

Abstract

The genre of Dance for Camera has been around for many years. This platform provides choreographers with a unique way for their work to be created and seen. Because of how dance is framed when on film, the choreographer gets to choose exactly what the audience sees. The use of editing can greatly influence a viewer’s perspective of a piece of choreography.

I will demonstrate these differences using a dance I choreographed and filmed. From this footage, I edited three distinct Dance for Cameras. The first is straight from my imagination and exactly what I intended to create. The next two were not pre-planned but crafted through the editing process using different elements of time, focus and intention. My goal was to create completely separate films while using the same footage.

My presentation will be in powerpoint format. It will include a brief introduction of dance for camera and the process for my own filmmaking. I will then show the entire original video (approximately 5 minutes in length) along with a short clip of the second and third videos. To accompany the second and third films I will engage the audience in dialogue about what they saw and reveal my choices in editing.
