Dance, like all performance, is ephemeral. It is difficult to record for vibrant experience later. It is a challenge for videomakers. It has an unusually large dynamic range in lighting, cameras are challenged to capture it. Color management is challenging. A multi camera setup is ideal. Synching across takes requires using the score as the timeline. There is a school of thought that a single long shot of the whole stage is the only way to record dance. That approach tends to be boring.
Today is an afternoon of dance videos from the 2015 Outlet Dance Project and a discussion with local videomakers Karl Lind, Wobbly Dance, SubRosa Dance Collective and more.
Discussion 3PM-4, Videos 4:30PM-6.
