PUTTING IT ON FILM
We did it. 3 cameras. 2 1/2 hours. 9 minutes of dance on film.
But it was hot. As Hurricane Irene hit the East Coast, we were thankful for the clear skies here, but we sweltered in the heavy, humid air. The next day, the town would be shut down by the worst flooding in decades.
Our biggest obstacles when we arrived to set up were camera batteries that needed charging with no outlets in sight and 3 massive mowing machines that pulled up just as we pulled the cameras out of their cases. Did we need reminding of how dependent we are on power?
As the dancers pulled on their layers of costumes and the cameras started rolling, we all started dripping. But we got it done. We wrapped it up and headed for Phantom Theater to perform Moving People under a red sky.
Two weeks until we do it again. Find us at the Growing Local Fest in Montpelier on September 10. Then again at the Statehouse for Moving Planet on September 24. And watch for the video. Coming soon!
