I had just finished seven days of all-day teaching. After so much energy output, I always feel like I need to move for myself to recharge and reset. Becoming a couch vegetable does not work for me. I need foam roller time, floor time or nature time.
We were in a uniquely black dance studio and Ken put his camera on a tripod. We took turns doing some easy, full-song freestyles. He told me that the footage was super dark (which surprised me since the overhead lights were on), and that I was almost always in the far side of the frame (which is typical of me).
But—I didn’t really care since I was just enjoying the opportunity to move.
The other day, I asked if he had a way to brighten the clips. He replied with “I have an idea”. This is what he did. This video is an actual full-song freestyle with a few clips from other sessions layered in. We had no intentions of making this when we shot it, which makes it even more interesting. Enjoy.
