Behind the scenes with the Nora Gibson Performance Project - film shoot

The third level of the old church was grimy and full of what appeared to be once-loved-but-discarded-and-forgotten toys and props. Windows, covered in a film allowed the glowing sun to create a warm yellow fog as it danced between the floating dust. A sense of nostalgia permeated the cluttered space. I'm excited to see how Nora's precise choreography, pointe work, and delicate costumes lend a different narrative to the space - and to how the frame of this setting informs the viewing of Nora's work.

Here are some of the shots from behind the scenes.

This is what happens with the direction to make "a pretty dancer picture"
shortly after warm up and before shooting begins.

Thanks for an amazing experience!
Beautiful ceiling and windows!

Reviewing footage... can't wait to see the final product!
