ADA 160 - Dance for the Camera

Course Units: 0
(Not Offered this Academic Year) This course focuses on the process of making dances for the camera, uniting the various aesthetics of movement and the practical elements of recording visual material. Since the arrival of the digital chip, the light camera, and various computer programs, we have seen a revolution in dances created for the screen, Slideroom, YouTube or Vimeos.  Methods will focus on conceptualized movement, phrase development, compositional tools and framing, as well as design production. Through discussions, decision-making, individual and collaborative work, the designated choreographer/director, crew and cameraperson will develop a sense of craft used in the art of making dances for video viewing.  The student challenge will be to invent a unique dance language to communicate ideas, intentions and feelings through the medium of video making. Dance moves - with their complexity, richness, rhythmical and compelling imagery - will be at the core of their creative work. CC: HUM
