Video from a PERFORMANCE with
Justin Morrison, Ron Estes & Leslie Seiters (dance)
David Hurley (drums)
I was asked to document this event through video,but how I chose to show that footage and live music is a creation of its own.
When the performance began I was trying to get all the dancers in the frame, but their movement sent them flying every which way, making it harder and harder to keep a smooth moving shot. That was until I let their movement direct my camera, creating what looks like to be there own solo performances (which I liked very much). In the video I intended to show a solo for every dancer so as to not focus on just one.
I loved David Hurley's music during the performance but how I wanted some shots to be viewed asked for different music then what was live in some shots. This is not saying anything against the amazing drumming of David Hurley. I merely had something else in mind than the intended performance.
