Tuesday for Thursday

May 22, 2014

Remember Dances Made to Order? They were (RIP!) an online dance film series that focused on three choreographers from one US city each month. The challenge for the choreographers was to create a dance film in two weeks. Not just any dance film, though; those that bought tickets to view it online got to vote on the ingredients for the film.

Ben and I participated in July, 2012, but could only share the full film with those who bought tickets. But, when Dances Made to Order recently made the decision to close down their operation, they released the rights.

So, here's Tuesday. Consulting my notes, the prompts were: left behind; real/false; wabi-sabi. Regardless of the details, I loved working in an assignment-based way. It was really helpful for meeting the two week deadline and getting out of our heads. And, even though we didn't choose the the film parameters, it very much looks and feels like our work.

Credits: Performances by Charles Campbell and Megan Mayer ; dance film shooting & editing by Ben McGinley; foley and sound effects work by Mike Hallenbeck; music by The Brass Messengers
