Dance Talks: Screendance; Small Crew, Great Production

The majority of dance films must be realised with a small crew due to budget constraints. Dance Ireland has invited Lisa Tighe and Cáit Ní Dhuinnín to speak from their experience of their recently completed film with just the two of them making up the entire crew. In conversation will be Mary Wycherley, who has the rare experience of working with both small and large budgets when it comes to dance and film. Key topics that will be touched on include:

Balancing the need for high quality dance film production while working with small budgets.

Managing budget wisely without compromising your production quality - Making essential choices

What (and who) makes up a small crew?

How careful planning/ scripting your dance film saves you money.

Considering (and appreciating) the creative freedoms, opportunities and space for spontaneity which can come with smaller productions.
