About the Book:

Since the advent of digital video technology, dance on camera has become an increasingly popular, and important genre of dance.

Making Video Dance is the first ever how-to manual for choreographers, dancers and students who want to make dance films.

Specifically written from a personal experience of a complete lack of printed material to help beginners get started, Katrina McPherson has produced an exemplary text which combines practical help with aesthetic discussion in an anecdotal and accessible style.

Making Video Dance includes:

• exercises to be used inside, or outside the classroom
• a production diary
• interviews with leading practitioners on both sides of the camera
• helpful tips and a glossary of terms

Anyone involved in making dance videos needs this helpful and remarkable book.
