Even though we are approaching the degree show I still enjoy experimenting with how I go about capturing my performances. Pretty much all of my work has been recorded with a still continuous shot this term. This is mainly because I am focusing on the piece as an actual performance rather than a film. Having said that when viewing the piece in this way it does create this sense of distance between the viewer and the performer, which wouldn't happen if the piece is performed live. There is something to be gained from switching up the cinematography. More movement and intimacy can be added to the work by having a moving or close shot.
I had Ed film my performance by hand, and encouraged him to respond to my movements with the camera, I also asked that he kept the camera low, as to stay on the same level as me. The footage is a little shaky and imperfect, but it allows one to get a sence of how it feels to wear the prosthetics.
