THIS TITLE WAS SELECTED TO BE SCREENED AT THE 2010 BBC NORFOLK FILM FESTIVAL IN NORWICH, UK.
Shot on MiniDV on a Sony DCR-TRV19E Digital Handycam with a 0.5X wide lens attachment at 576 50i. Made progressive in post production.
This was an A2 Photography project with the objective being to produce still photographs or a video with the theme 'Transitions'. My initial idea was to record time-lapses, but I thought outside the box and realised that dance can also show transitions. The flowing of one movement in the muscle to another is an example of this. My plan was to shoot many dancers, performing in open public areas with a slight candid filming style.
The end result is a short 'n' sweet video of me and another dancer in the city of Norwich, UK. I originally wanted more dancers, but because time was against me, no one else was available on the day of shooting.
The message can be seen as dancers not caring what anyone thinks about them. They are all in their personal trances, dancing and enjoying themselves, no matter what. The song is called 'Time Of Our Lives' by Paul van Dyk, which emphasises the fact that we are enjoying ourselves in the moment of dancing.
