A Dance Film

The first project for the 2016 season was a ballet dance film. Originally scheduled for August was moved to the middle of May. I was given conceptual ideas three weeks prior to the shoot. The piece was a post-apocalyptic world, out in the desert. Here is a shot from one of the filming days.

Distressing is not one of my fortes but I think it turned out ok. I wanted some of the color distressing to be permanent so I used Deval fabric paint for upholstery in both black and brown. While the paint was still drying I powdered the areas with ash, giving it some highlights. The powder is really messy so once the costumes were done I wrapped them in a large queen size sheet and then placed the entire bundle in garbage bag. They cast was able to take this onto set and roll out the bundle on the ground.
