Light Moves is delighted to host the launch of the new book Making Video Dance by Katrina McPherson as part of our Screendance Symposium on Friday 9 November at 9:00am.
Making Video Dance is the first workbook to follow the entire process of video dance production: from having an idea, through to choreographing for the screen, filming and editing, and distribution. In doing so, award-winning director Katrina McPherson explores and analyses the creative, practical, technical and aesthetic issues that arise when making video dance. This rigorously revised edition brings the book fully up to date, and includes new practical exercises, new writing on developing a practice and filming in the landscape, updated information about camera use, ideas for distribution in the 21st century, and insights into Katrina’s own screendance practice.
"Making Video Dance is a seminal work, the first of its kind for screendance/dance film educators. When Making Video Dance arrived on the scene, it soon became the pre-eminent resource for those interested in exploring the practice of making dance films. I wholeheartedly support the revision/additions to Making Video Dance, as its subject has only become more relevant since its first publication." - Ellen Bromberg, Distinguished Professor, University of Utah
