A couple months ago it was warm outside in New York City and the Merce Cunningham Dance Company was winding down it’s rehearsals and classes for the season. Director Alla Kovgan and Producer Kelly Gilpatrick reached out to OFFHOLLYWOOD to help produce a 3D workshop with the Company's dancers before their rehearsals ended.
Together with Stereographer Alonso Homs and the smallest 3D crew you ever imagined, OFFHOLLYWOOD supported a 3-day at 3D workshop at City Center, home of the Merce Cunningham Trust. We chased dancers around the studio with an ATOM EPIC 3D setup on ladders, on the floor, on dolly, and even on stedicam thanks for Steadicam Operator Yoshi Teng, who has plenty of 3D experience after chasing Parkour legends atop the roofs of New York City last year with an ATOM Rig for RUN 3D.
It was a great workshop experience and I am happy to give congratulations to Alla and Kelly for the recognition by the 2013 3D American Film Market that voted Merce Cunningham 3D as the #1 most anticipated 3D feature as released by The Hollywood Reporter last week.
