Frame by Frame

This three-week workshop takes students through every step of the process as they create their own short dance film.

Sign up for KT’s Dance Film Track at Velocity Dance Center’s Strictly Seattle, this July 8-28. REGISTER HERE.

Participants will learn the necessary preparatory elements of creating a film – sound and choreographic elements, storyboarding, location scouting, styling, and rehearsing material through the perspective of the camera’s lens. Each student will then have the opportunity to shoot their film with a professional cinematographer, learning on-set vernacular and how to effectively convey their directorial vision to their cameraperson. In the final stages, students will learn basic editing skills, with a professional editor and composer available as mentors.

KT’s interest in dance film began in 2008. Since then she has had the privilege of learning from filmmakers Thierry De Mey, Victoria Marks and Alla Kovgan as well as working with cinematographers Ben Kasulke, Christian Hansen, Sebastien Scandiuzzi and Linus Phillips. To date she has created four short films and her work has been screened at the American Dance Festival, NEXT Dance Film Festival, Dance for Reel at Emory University, New Filmmakers New York, and the San Francisco Dance Film Festival.
