This clip is the result of an investigation exploring the possibilities for movement and perspective in working with Walter Klassen's amazing Far-Out camera rig walterklassen.com. The camera is literally worn by the dancers as they become the architects and choreographers of the space and scene. Here you can see the rig revealed and in action where normally the rig would be hidden by costume or angle.
The process was key to the development of a short film entitled "The Shift" which will feature this technique in a narrative context. To be released at the end of 2013 by WanderingEyeProductions.com
This video was made in collaboration with Ballet Jörgen Canada ( balletjorgen.ca ) and Troy Feldman. Thanks to the amazing dancers who brought it to life.
