A Documentary Teaser
This past week I put together a teaser of Super 8 footage that I will be using in the documentary. I chose to use Super 8 sequences of each dancer in Strength and Beauty because I felt it would be more effective at portraying the dancers quality of movement. When shooting a live performance you are stuck in one stationary position and it is hard to create a dynamic sequence. Even if you have tons of money and multiple cameras shooting live has major limitations. You can’t get on the stage to be in the middle of the action, otherwise all the other cameras (and the audience) will see you and, thus, ruin the illusion. Therefore, the dancers and I created special scenes for each of them. I have been very happy with the results and I hope you enjoy it as well!
