For this assignment I watched Romeo and Juliet with Rudolph Nureyev and Margot Fonteyn This filmed dance was taped in 1966 and everything from the costumes to the sets made it seem very dated But the question was did the filmmaker capture the dance and how and below is my opinion on the question In class we discussed that moving picture dance is when dance and the motion picture components are contributors to the end result In Romeo and Juliet I do not feel that this happened First of all while watching the movie I didnt feel apart of it I felt very removed from the stage and the characters that were upon it The editing was not very appealing to the movie-watchers eye The cameras changed abruptly at points where I still wanted to watch that dancer It was distracting and therefore I felt it would have been better to view this filmed dance as an audience member so I could soak in everything The scenery was very elegant and grand but they often didnt capture all of it I think they should have used a reestablishing shot more often where it cuts back to the long shot from the beginning so the movie watcher can see the set as well as all of the dancers I think this shot works well especially for staged productions so you dont feel like you are missing anything Also a lot of times they would cut to the dancers expressions and I couldnt really see them good because they were moving very fast it should have been filmed so at certain pints when the dancers werent moving you could see the expressions All in all I think I would have preferred to see this filmed dance in real life because of the way the shooting was There was a lot of elements from the motion picture dance definition that was missed in this film
