Capturing Dance on Film: Creative Careers

Carmel Smickersgill, Tours & Activities Editor

Creative Careers – Capturing Dance on Film at HOME Manchester, Manchester, 16 February 2021 - Book now

Unlike the other workshops in HOME‘s Creative Careers series, Capturing Dance on Film is a multidisciplinary feast. Whether you’re a filmmaker who wants to understand how best to capture the beauty and energy of dance, or a dancer looking to explore creative storytelling through dance on film, this inspiring cross art form workshop is for you.  From learning about how to direct dancers, to understanding how to duet with a camera, you’ll get a real practical insight into how dancers and filmmakers can work with each other to tell stories, improve each other’s craft, and create something new.

You’ll also get the chance to ask questions about building a career as an independent film maker or professional dance artist, get some inspiration for your next project and spend some time with other emerging creatives. It could be an ideal opportunity to start professional creative relationships, or meet other like minded artists at the beginning of pursuing a career in dance or film.

Capturing Dance on Film will be led by Sam Arbor, an award-winning filmmaker and graduate of HOME’s BFI Film Academy and Yandass Ndlovu, a dancer and artist who has performed with Manchester International Festival and Boy Blue. Together they have created (London Short Film Festival), Let’s Go (featured on BBC North West Tonight) and WOZA! (MIF live).
