Workshop Interactive Dance Film @ Mediamatic

Workshop Interactive Dance Film - Cinedans 2006; June 25-29 @ Mediamatic; 1 July presentation of results.

THE WORKSHOP: Together with the Cinedans Festival, Mediamatic organizes a workshop on interactive dance film. In this workshop, 16 international dance filmers, editors and choreographers make interactive online dance films or dance film installations, using their own footage.

Interactive film offers interesting new forms of contact between the film and its viewer, but also requires other ways of shooting and editing the material. The participants research the relations between the paths of the camera, the movements of filmed bodies, the dramaturgy of the viewer and its movements on the screen or through space (in case of an installation), that together make up the form of the interactive dance film.

TRAJECTORY: The workshop is an intense 5-day process. Starting off with a close study of several intriguing interactive dance film projects on the first day, the participants create the content, form and interactive experience of their project, discuss it with experienced trainers and participants, and build a working prototype assisted by technical assistants.

Participants can bring up to 40 minutes of material, on dvd, or on FireWire harddisk, preferrably in Quicktime movie format. Participants use an easy-to-learn tool, that allows the projects to be published online, or on dvd-rom. All participants are assisted personally in realising their workshop projects. Specific technical knowledge of new media is not required.


The workshop fee is €300 (incl. VAT) for participants from new member states of the EU and €420 (incl. VAT) for participants from other EU member states.

Registration is possible online. Mail any questions you might have to workshops[at]mediamatic.nl or call Klaas Kuitenbrouwer: +31 20 6389901.

This workshop is made possible with the support of the MEDIA PLUS PROGRAMME of the European Community
