We shot the 13th and 14th of October – about 7 am to noon each morning – had a great time, great weather & ended up with some cool footage.

Thank you to our cast, who all danced bravely and were truly badass Wyoming women including, Kathryn Turner as she painted amidst the chaos. Our extremely awesome dancers were Marissa (Carr) Moeri, Lauren Mace, Cady Cox, Meleta Buckstaff, Megan Stewart & Natalia Duncan-Macker
Special shouts outs to Producer Natalia and DP Derek DiLuzio for making this shoot fun & relaxed while also garnering exceptional footage!

Dancers Workshop Music Video Camp

30 08 2012

Students at Dancers’ Workshop took a week-long Music Video Camp from Hole Dance Films’ Kate Kosharek and Carrie Richer this July. Each student filled a crew role – Director, Cinematographer, Costumer, Choreographer and Location Manager. They studied Site Specific Dance principles as well as Cinematic and Choreographic principles before plunging in to their own creative work. Students conceived of, costumed, choreographed, performed, shot, edited and presented their work entirely on their own. We had a great time and look forward to bringing these concepts and technology & dance together into other DW programming, so stay tuned.
Thanks to Analise, Ava, Anya, Kiva, Mary Grace, Emmaline, Emma, Stephanie and Mark for being part of Hole Dance Films for a week!  Pictures and links to the music videos are below:

Hole Dance Films new projects and people

29 04 2012

It’s April and Hole Dance Films has a new producer on board,

HDF Producer, Natalia Duncan Macker

Natalia Duncan Macker joins us to take the world of Dance Film by storm in the coming months.You can see by her picture that this lady’s arrival from Los Angeles recently means nothing but awesome things for us, she knows how to make things happen and she clearly belongs here in Wyoming!

We had the pleasure of setting a piece on the Junior Repertory Dance company members at Dancers’ Workshop these past few months and it is shaping up to be a cool piece with live dance alongside a simultaneous dancefilm projection. We’ve loved working with the students and look forward to more projects as whimsical as this one! If you are interested, the show is Friday May 4th. For more info, check in at Dancers’ Workshop,

And finally we were recently awarded a microgrant from the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole to help us buy a new tripod and it is sure going to make a difference in our work – thank you Community Foundation of Jackson Hole!

Hole Dance Films wins GoPro contest and premieres DREAM

We’ve been busy lately – we showed our film DREAM to audiences on Saturday, October 1st at the Wyoming Filmmakers Showcase. The film will tour throughout the State for viewers this year – if you are interested, contact the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival.

Along with that very sweet premiere for our many community members who starred in the film, the short film will be part of the Jackson Digital Media Ambassador project. The film features over 8 locations in central Jackson. This project utilizes QR codes throughout Jackson and the film will be accessible by smartphone QR scans at most of the Jackson public spaces  featured in the film.  Watch for them and get your phone ready … pretty soon you’ll be able to watch the film on your phone as you pass by its’ well known locations. Thanks to Wyoming Arts council and the Jackson Cultural Council for their help in funding this very cool, collaborative effort. The film, Dream on Vine St. is uploaded here on our blog – check the WATCH FILMS page and Enjoy!

As part of the Wyoming Filmmakers Showcase, Hole Dance Films was able to attend the Wildlife Film Festival up at Jackson Lake Lodge.

We took part in the 3D GoPro micro-short Film contest …. and we won! HDF won two 3D GoPro setups as a prize and the film is uploaded on our youtube channel and accessible on our facebook – so LIKE US and  get your glasses ready! Below is a productions still from Fall 3D as a little teaser…

Summer in Jackson Hole!

It’s summer and HDF is chilling in Jackson and enjoying our precious 2 month long summer.

We just shot a new film called DREAM that is funded in part by the Jackson Cultural Council . The shoot went great and we are working on post production details.

This project is extra special and will be shown in Jackson in July along with Elusive Stranger, An After Dinner Drink, Blue’s not the Word and Jill & Jack. If you are interested in seeing our work – email us and make sure we have you on our e-list. Tickets will be affordable but we are hoping to raise some money to support some very cool projects we have up our sleeves (we’ll tell you what those are at the show) so think of ways YOU might be able to help Hole Dance Films.

Thanks for the support! Below is a teaser pic from DREAM ~
