5. Q's/Points to Consider

5.1. Rrecording dance via video is more about the motion, and recording it via photo is more about the photographer. What are you looking for? What you love about dance is not what you love about photography. What you love about dance may be captured in videography.

5.2. how are you going to combine film and photo? And why

6. Suggestions

6.1. When moving from Photo to Video- Don't just focus on one still

6.2. Playing with space between the camera and the dancer-- closer more intimate.

7. Presentation

7.1. see everything-- see photos and hear the narration from video

7.2. Show photos THEN video

7.3. wants to see the whole routine when the still image is shown - it creates suspense. Combine the video and photo. Show the photo, then later give the audience what they want.
