Capturing planes of movement that can’t be easily explored on stage

ABOUT YELLOW FRAME FILMS


USERNAME FOR CRED DONATIONS: YELLOW FRAME

Yellow Frame Films was started by Shirley-Anne Bezuidenhout as a way to create and share work without being dependent on existing dance festivals.

As part of a BMus degree in Contemporary Dance and Choreography at the University of Cape Town, Shirley took a module in ‘Film as a Medium to Express Dance’.  This lit a spark which evolved into the founding of Yellow Frame Films a few years later. The challenge in filming dance, she says ” is encouraging the dancers to think differently about how to move and how to project emotion specifically for film, where the vantage point is no longer static, but can move around, capturing planes of movement that can’t be easily explored on stage”.

Shirley describes the experience as “an exciting journey of experimentation, play and learning new skills”. She worked alone at first, exploring different locations and concepts, but her enthusiasm soon saw her teaming up with other dancers and choreographers. The challenge for Shirley then became how to capture someone else’s vision on film while maintaining the intention of Yellow Frame Films.

This collaboration and experimentation is key to the vision for Yellow Frame Films, which aims to develop more dance production on a digital media platform to ensure contemporary dance stays “moving”, accessible and relevant.
