Keeping You Dancing Virtually
Hey LJ! I assuming this a continuance of your first piece? I already see the connections and the movement is beautiful. Keep playing with the various movement at once. My one suggestion from the last piece into this one (if they are connected/related) is to find a way to highlight your soloist but also the four other dancers. Overall, the movement is intercut and I'm interested to see where it will go. Beautiful work!
1.) Will this section follow the one you did prior or actually begin your piece? This section has a calmer tone to it, and if it is the second section, it opens the question of what happened to leave these individuals with less tension -- what caused them to feel differently now?
2.) Get your dancers to really extend their movement more fully. What's missing is that cross diagonal stretch from finger tip to toe and the energy pushing out from opposite ends -- lengthening the movement.
3.) Consider where the camera focus will be when each dancer is moving separately and then in unison. For example: does each dancer get their own shot, and will union dancing be a long shot all together?
4.) If you travel through the dancers as you film, be sure to use the gimbal. it will heighten the filming quality by at least three times.
5.) The music and movement vocabulary are pretty much working. I feel that the overall quality has to be more defined in order to truly give richness and risk to the movement. Explaining this to your dancers will also give a clearer sense of intention.
