Dance Video Spotlight - Vickie Fagan
CREATORS NOTES from videographer Vickie FAGAN on the collaborative creation of a new dance video featuring contemporary dance artist Sara PORTER for Older & Reckless: 20 Years of Age on Stage
As a filmmaker, I cherish the times I can work collaboratively with a fellow creator. This project was the perfect storm. Sara Porter is an artist that is fearless, funny, poignant and wickedly creative. What fun it was to play with ideas without clearly knowing how they would fit into the end picture. We were able to riff back and forth allowing for spontaneity within a loose framework. Though I may be partial, I love how the moments found a cohesive train.
