ADVANCED SESSION — DANCE FILM TRACK

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

Participants take Advanced technique classes in the morning, then work with filmmaker/choreographer KT Niehoff and a professional cinematographer, composer, and editor to learn the necessary 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 have the opportunity to shoot their own film to be screened at Strictly Seattle Performances. The Dance Film Track is co-produced by Velocity and KT Niehoff / 10 degrees.
