Video making in the time of COVID

Some green screen, PPE, shooting at home and in a large studio with a small group of artists. Together, these elements made it possible to create our next dance short film for Bare Bait Dance's next production: CXQ. Mike, my partner in all aspects of life was DP. I directed. Working with the company since October (see earlier post), we took choreography created for the stage and adapted it to video.

As we sit down to edit, I see now this is exactly how the piece was suppose to turn out. Creating the nostalgic look of TV commercials and workout videos of 1983--the year I was born--could only be realized through video and editing techniques that were once upon a time, cutting edge. Mike and I will transport ourselves into video producers of that era. There will be neon, cheesy graphics and superimposed images. Stay tuned for the transformation.


Bare Bait Dance company: Katie Conrad, Tara MacFarland, Maeve Fahey, Tikki Preston, Mac Black
