One year ago, we did a post on our collaboration with choreographer David Fernandez on his performance “White Shirt, Black Pants, Black Tie”, shot using our Sony EX-1-R HD cameras. This year we shot the same concept, but using David’s XXS dancers, aged 9-12 years old, titled “White Shirt, Black Pants, Black Tie XXS”. To sum up my extreme enthusiasm: I was so impressed by these girls, it honestly made me want to sign up for classical dance classes.
Not only was the performance an excellent demonstration of David’s ability to work with professional dancers and aspiring young adults, but the preparation for the shoot was an opportunity for us learn a great amount about the growth of the HD camera market within the last year or so. By using two Canon 5D Mark 2 cameras alongside one of our EX-1-R’s, our opinions on DSLR video recording has done a complete 360. With the simple function and large array of Canon lenses to pick from, I can easily say that I’m in love.
Video clips of the performance coming soon!
