Crypsis will capture the impermanent art forms of body painting and aerial dance. Filming June 7th, 2011
Shooting is scheduled for June 7th, 2011, with a wrap party and screening shortly after. Details soon.
Combine the ephemeral art forms of aerial dance and body art to create a dance video. Capture these impermanent art forms and share them with a global audience.
Crypsis is an adaptation by an organism to avoid detection by way of camouflage or mimicry. Many mimics elicit an ominous archetype from the collective unconscious.
All of the collaborators are volunteering their time. The dancer, make-up and body artist, costume designer, musicians, director of photography, video and music editors are all professionals in their fields. To learn about these artists, see the links below.
Licensed under the creative commons patent, anyone can share it, upload it, download it, remix it, and redistribute it, without the threat of legal reproach, as long as no
profit is gained.
Costs include materials, costume, paint, theater rental, and lighting rental. Our budget is 1,220 American dollars, but the more money we receive, the better our video will be!
Why should you pledge?
THIS AIN'T NO CHARITY. We offer you awesome incentives like limited edition DVDs, original art sketches, aerial dance lessons and more.
And you'll be making my dream come true.
Please pledge for Crypsis.
