CHOREOGRAPHY AND MOVEMENT IN FILM
Work in dance and movement in film can be an ever-changing and diverse experience. This is what makes it exciting! But it’s also what makes it extremely challenging. The top people in the industry have a vast range of skills (ballet, tap, historical dance, contemporary social dance, etc) and must always be ready to adapt and change to best serve their director and the film.
Within this two-day exploration of the discipline, we’ll look at the complete process of working in dance/movement on a film production, from initial meetings with producers and directors, to casting, rehearsals, and ultimately filming. There are a host of details and elements that need to be considered at each stage of the process, in addition to the actual creation of the work.
With discussions, Q and A’s, and practical ‘on your feet’ workshops, we’ll explore the myriad of fun and challenging scenarios that can present themselves on a variety of job assignments.
Topics will include:
Different approaches for different films, Genres, and directors;
How does the dance/movement fit into the narrative of the film and/or scene;
Relationships with other departments (Directors, Assistant Directors, Costume Departments, Sound Departments, Art and Props Departments);
Practical sessions in creating and filming the work (historical dance, etc); Actors, dancers, and Muppets - working with differing levels of skills, abilities, and comfort zones.
