This is the first workbook to follow the entire process of video dance production: fro having an idea, through to choreographing for the screen, filming and editing, and distribution. In doing so it explores and analyses the creative, practical, technical and aesthetic issues that arise when making video dance. The book is written by award-winning director Katrina McPherson, whose passion for the genre combines with her wide experience of choreographing directing and teaching video dance.
