Summary
Three groups of choreographers and videographers discuss the process of collaborating on film or video recordings of dance works. They describe their own special and sometimes divergent viewpoints and goals, noting the differences between working for the stage and the camera, and the necessity of reconciling these differences in order to produce a successful recording. They compare different approaches to recording dance works (e.g., documentary, storytelling), and the roles played by the choreographer and the videographer in shooting and editing the work. In response to a question from the audience, the videographers discuss the amount of time a video recording requires, from preparation to post-production (including editing). The discussion is illustrated by excerpts from the video collaborations of the panelists. An excerpt from Geoffrey Holder's Prodigal prince was screened but not recorded for this video record due to union restrictions. The program concludes with a question-and-answer session.
