Perfomance to Camera...
An interesting presentation from Anya on Tuesday afternoon, looking at unscripted performances to camera. I found it both interesting and useful, as I am currently working with video and performance. It was a shame we didn't get the later half as I was looking forward to experimenting in the studio with a camera, and as a group. I think sitting in a darkened room for the first half left everyone a bit flat, hope we can continue this at a later date.
Here are the links Anya sent me...
