The Dance Video Collection is a series of dance concept videos produced, directed, choreographed, and edited by Marc Generoso. Adapted from Marc’s competitive studio dance pieces from Vibrant Dance Studios (Nanaimo, BC) and Urban Dance Connection (Campbell River, BC) into cinematic short films, the collection consists of 10 independent dance films that merge dance, film, and narrative.

This project began in 2010 with 10 exclusive dance numbers from Vibrant Dance Studios and was later released in 2012. The project was reprised in 2013 with a new set of dance pieces that were released in 2014. This is the third and final installment of this unique experience.

In his graduating year in film school as well as his 13th and final year as a dedicated dance teacher and choreographer, Marc has amalgamated the art forms of film and dance to create long lasting memories of his experiences with these two supportive dance communities.

DVC 2016 | Emma King in “Haunted” (3 of 10)

The spirit of a heartbroken woman haunts her lover, set to Beyonce’s “Haunted”.

Emma King

Kyle Vicente

This was the very first DVC 2016 film shot (April 2015). This marks the longest single day shoot at 16 hours (12pm – 4am the following day), not including the second shooting day and re-shoot.

The location was generously lent by the Schwan’s (Glynnis and Justin). The living room furniture was moved to the kitchen to make space for Emma’s dancing.

The mistress that Kyle has an affair with is played by his actual girlfriend, Britt Lovell.

The second living room scene where Kyle meets Emma face-to-face took seven people to operate. Mikayla Paukalak and Mikayla Gresmak directed fans to create a wind effect with the curtains, Justin Schwan and Jaidyn Durakovic attended to the dry ice, Kelsey Hutt and Glynnis Schwan controlled the fog machine, and Marc worked the dimmer, creating the lightning effect.

Emma’s character, the ghost, is the same character in Futuristic Tribe’s “Monsters”, making this film the origin story of how she became the ghost.

Emma was so committed to the shoot, she always opted to do more takes than what Marc wanted.
