Things to remember:
These things are a part of your composition:
color
shape of clothing
nail polish
shape of ceiling
geometry plays into the whole space
you want to be swooping in and out of listening to this
the shape of the lights
all of this is a part of each vignette
how does the shape of the room play into each vignette?
every scratch on the floor, every breath
considering your body when you have the camera
socks/no socks?
really set up your shot
picking it up/setting it down: how are you making decisions about these transitions?
is five minutes enough time?
how are you ending
take your time setting up each first frame

Progression (Attention, Space…)

4_O_Personality_1

is anything missing?
remember to be playful, risky
add to the improvisation score:
everybody in both frames
solos

mini progression before each vignette?

Further Specifying Scores:

Personality:
everybody’s feet in two frames
cameras see each other
everybody in two frames
selfies
reveals
solos
looking good
playful
risky

Preserving A Moment

camera watches dancers with other camera
nothing.
return to something
snapshots
awareness
body as archive
nostaligic
sentimental
internal
emotional
reflective

Creating A Sensation
sounds
moving camera versus still camera
tilting
action happens but cameras don’t record
sliding on the floor

Visible Time
stillness for one camera and one dancer
dancer movement and camera movement match
stillness
suddenness
sweeping action
repetition
retracing
catch something
replacing
specify sequence
disrupting the trace

4_O_Preserving a Moment_1

in general, work on beginnings and endings
work on thinking in more detail about the camera frame
performance

4_N_Preserving A Moment_3

returning to the beginning
we really sat in things today
keeping my frame narrow
trying closing my eyes
the length of time of “the moment” varies
do i want to preserve this moment?
is it ten seconds? a photo?
touch has come up. the body as archive in relationship with the camera as archive.


4_N_Creating A Sensation_1
4_N_Creating A Sensation_2

Sound can determine the sensation
rain? thunderstorm?
today was creepy, uneasy

4_N_Visible Time_1

working on tracing the movements from 2 seconds ago, 10 seconds ago, a minute…

Attention
Space
Geometry
Frame
Multiple Frames
Sequence
Adding Frames

Practicing Smooth Camera Movement Strategies so that it is available to us when we’re working

5 minute vignettes:
Further specifying scores, movement and camera movement vocabularies

Preserving a Moment
time loop, eternal
wish I could feel this again
awareness of the passing moment
what does this bring up in your body?

how can we partially think about the camera and partially not think about the camera- experts moving on- choosing
people not working with cameras not just in their own world
be really particular about setting up your frame
how can you make these events flow into one another
what kinds of camera vocabularies live where within this vignette?
be clear about proximity, about repetition

Creating a Sensation
sensation of what? of missing something? is it determined each run?
ask the future audience with your movement decisions to watch this in a certain way

Visible Time/Traces
suddenness
speed
stillness for one camera and one dancer
dancer movement/camera movement match
stillness
sweeping of cameras

Personality
reveals, selfies
shaky shaky face
cameras looking at each other
“i think this will look cool”
reveals
selfies
playfulness + thoughtfulness + risk
wear your favorite outfit, but be specific
the stakes of negotiation are hight -DG
closeness
playfulness makes cyborging different, i don’t want to cyborg in the same kind of way -DJ

4_K_1 :
Hiding things from the camera
4_K_2:
Stillness of camera and dancers switched off and on
4_K_3:
when cameras saw eachother, camera operators were not cyborging! 
4_K_4:
What about signals of stop, start, approach

What about quality of movement? When does it do what? When do you do certain dance moves and what are those? Where does this sound come from? Why? What is it doing?

Pedestrian movement with the camera- must be taken care of. Get more comfortable trying things makes movement quality gravitate toward pedestrian when you’re holding the camera- leaps and jumps would feel overly performative.
If your eyes can make dramatic things happen, do you need to do dramatic things?
Reality things came up like just taking care of the camera.
The camera pulls you out of the zone
You have to take responsibility for the camera

PRESERVING A MOMENT
1)Both Cameras see something, 1 camera moves on
2)Camera watches dancers with other cameras
3)Nothing
4)Cameras Looking at Each Other
5)Cameras look at same person, but two different parts of their body

-time loop, eternal
-I wish I could feel this again, don’t forget
-want to catch something rare

what is preserving a moment in your body? what does this bring up?
what is your body language when holding the camera?
what happens with timing? effort? weight? shape? why?
imposing camera preserving on others

CREATING A SENSATION
1)Moving camera vs. still camera
2)sliding on the floor
3)one camera looks at ceiling, one looks from the ceiling
4)shaky, shaky, face
5)nothing
6)action happens but camera does not record

seems to be a sensation of missing something, generally
slow it down. slow it all down.

VISIBLE TIME
1)1 camera moving, 1 camera still
2)Dancers movement/camera movement match
3)Slide on the floor
4)Stillness
5)Interrupting 2 frames

You forget that you don’t get to start over- with cameras you have to say “yes,and” because it was capturing everything before, during, and after your “mistake”

Bodily sensation of time passing

ABSTRACTION
1)Cameras look at two parts of the body of the same person
2)Camera doesn’t see the action
3)Reveal
4)Camera looks at other camera’s viewfinder
5)Shaky shaky face

Will they wear different costumes for each vignette?
If shaky camera isn’t that different from non-shaky camera, then it loses its effect.

wondering where the cameras should be to start and end

“incorrect use” of a tool of archive

it’s important (radical?) that they are being themselves, feeling what they feel in a consensual relationship of image giving and taking in this space

the way your frame changes inside of a single movement as you’re feeling things…
