I just watched a short documentary (link found here) on Il Posto, a vertical dance company based in Venice. Vertical dance is basically a form of aerial movement, where dancers are suspended on wires of ropes from the ceiling or top of a building. Fastened in harnesses very similar to those used to rock climb, they are able to transcend what is up, down, left or right. The multiple angles they employed in the film help convey this to the viewer.
They opened up the 5 minute film in a really creative and effective way and it was definitely one of my favorite aspects of the short documentary. Compiled together were these tiny, 1-2 second long, very quick cuts between different shots of the preparation process. I think they were created and put in the film to stir up a sense of excitement and exhilaration, one that might to similar to the buzz of adrenaline you might get performing, or even just viewing this sort of work.
The documentary was comprised of primarily b-roll footage with a narrated voice over. That is, we never got actually saw the face who was doing the talking as they were doing it. This was I think in part because the subject of the film was not first and foremost the people, but the art that the company itself creates. By showing us lots of footage of this unusual kind of movement, we were given the opportunity to become more familiar with it.
