"Dance On" with Billie Mahoney
-- Setting Up at KCB --

Since April 2011 I've been shooting a television program with Billie Mahoney shown on Time Warner Cable called Dance On. It runs 29-min 30-sec. Billie started this program in 1981 in New York City. She interviews guests who are dancers, choreographers and others related to the field.

From the biggest names to the smallest she shows every guest is awesome and has a great deal to contribute. Dance is hard labor: hard physical labor and hard mental labor and dancers are very thoughtful and very articulate and very enthused about what they do and what it means to them.

For a long time I've promised that I would turn my cameras on me to show what I do to turn the conference room at KCB into a "television studio" and a (very tiny) sense of what the show looks like. Maybe later a sampler from the show with a set of brief extracts, depending.

The music as an old piece of generated music using Sony's Cinescore set to create klezmer music. It is really a tad too fast for what I intended but YouTube flagged my first choice ("Istanboogie") so I pulled that and substituted this one, which I could only find in an abbreviated version as the background music from a 2009 Fringe show with dance stills where I shot in the music and then edited to music (see it here) in a bit called "The Miniature Housewife" by Danielle Conover.

The title is a bit of a play on me as most of my gigs are at night, usually in very dark places. I've gotten so used to night gigs where I can't see a thing that last year when I was shooting a wedding for a friend, in Loose Park, I went out for two weeks to practice shooting again in the daylight. Really! Getting used to the light that nearly every other photographer shoots in and which I used to shoot in all the time.

This video was shot with a Nikon D-7100 DSLR. Sony FX-1000s (in the thumbnail frame) are used to shoot the program itself.

And, yup, that is me in there, not a super model, though I realize you've already made that mistake :-))) Cheers, Mike.
