Making Video Dance: A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating Dance for the Screen is the first workbook to follow the entire process of video dance production: from having an idea, through to choreographing for the screen, filming and editing, and distribution. In doing so, it explores and analyses the creative, practical, technical, and aesthetic issues that arise when making screen dance.

This rigorously revised edition brings the book fully up to date from a technical and aesthetic point of view, and includes:

  • An extended exploration of improvisation in the video dance-making process
  • New writing about filming in the landscape
  • Additional writing on developing a practice and working with scores and manifestos
  • Updated information about camera use, including filming with mobile phones
  • A step-by-step guide to digital non-linear editing of screen dance
  • Ideas for distribution in the 21st century
  • Insights into Katrina’s own screen dance practice, with reference to specific works that she has directed and which are available to view online
  • New and revised practical exercises
  • New illustrations specially drawn for this edition
