Ron Altman in 22 Shots

22 Shots Vimeo link

My first dance-film attempt. The criteria: Make up two simple movements—movements that have different dynamics. Find a performer and shoot those two movements from nine camera angles… • a profile • a diagonal • a frontal from each of three heights… • low angle (angled up on the subject) • flat (eye height) • high angle (not TOO high, looking down on the subject–you’ll need to find some stairs or a use ladder or something) (The shots at a certain height don’t have to be on the same side — you can go low profile from the left and low diagonal from the right.) = 18 shots (3 angles X 3 heights X 2 movements) Also shoot 4 close-ups — 2 for each movement. Voila — 22 shots
