2021-27 How to make a captivating Audition Video
2 days workshop Saturday 10 & Saturday 17 July
Presenting yourself online and sending audition videos is now the reality instead of live auditions. Because of this, it is wise to have some guidance in presenting yourself at your best in a dance video. We are all used to seeing short clips on social media, and we learn a lot from them, but what makes your video stand out from the rest….or not?
In this two-session workshop, Nicola Hepp will share tips and tricks about presenting yourself virtually. How can you show your skills and your personality as a dancer through a video? How do you catch the attention of the viewer? What things should you consider when it comes to editing material? In this course you will work with your own mobile phone camera on how to make the best shot, on framing, and how to use lighting. Nicola will give an assignment to the participants as a starting point, and there will be a task to work on in between the two online meetings. There will also be time for personal feedback from the group and the teacher.
Although this workshop is primarily for making an audition video, those interested in making dance films are also invited. Many topics will be covered that are also important and attractive for dance-filmmaking in general.
