DVC 2014 | THE PRODUCTION presents CIRCUS | PART 10 of 10

“Circus” is the Production’s sophmore performance since they were formed in 2011.  As the largest dance class at Vibe, the challenge was to find a concept or theme that would be realistically viable, upbeat, and provided opportunity to showcase other urban dance styles.  A circus theme would meet all these needs. This particular dance involved much more parental involvement, which was a great opportunity for family to connect on and off screen.  Special thanks to Gordon Reid (props master), Bernie Poelzer (location manager), and Katherine Ikona (seamstress) for their efforts in making this dance possible.  Also, a big big special thanks to all the parents who are a part of the production – this would not be possible without your trust and open mindedness =) Enjoy!

 

TRIVIA ABOUT THE PRODUCTION presents “CIRCUS”

  • Most extensive shoot in principal photography; shot at Arbutus Meadows (thanks to Thea and Bernie Poelzer)
  • Wyldie had copied and pasted extras and spread them out throughout stands
  • End credits were shot behind green screen and took 3 days to edit
  • Special equipment were used for the shoot: crane (for Noah’s windmill and wide angle shots) and pulley system (for the cage lift)
  • Car shot: There were 30 clowns standing in frame on the top right of the screen when the car opens the door to let them out; The shot was rotoscoped frame by frame to remove them from the shot

 

WHAT IS THE DVC PROJECT?

The Dance Video Collection 2014 (or DVC 2014 Project) is an anthology of dance videos produced, directed, choreographed, and edited by Marc Generoso. It features the amazing students from Vibrant Dance Studios – based in Nanaimo, BC (Canada). All 10 dance films were shot in May and June of 2013 and were edited by 3 filmmakers (Marc Generoso, Wyldie Maxwell, and Ben Holden). The dance choreography was from their 2012-2013 dance competition season and was re-adapted for film, integrating a small narrative, and incorporated acting. With only one completed year of film school at Capilano University, Marc applied the film techniques and practices that were taught, using the open minded families from Vibrant Dance Studios as a film experiment. The goal of the DVC project is contribute more value in the art of dance, promote dance within the youth, and involve the parents and supporters that invest the time and money into their children’s dance endeavours, making them part of experience as well.
