Encore Shorts: Aloft

Director's Statement

“Aloft” is a collaboration between producer/director Kate Duhamel, choreographer Yuri Zhukov, and Golden Gate 3D to create an original 3D dance video. Dancers Garen Scribner, Lonnie Weeks, Sean Bennett, Madison Keesler, Alex Jenkins, and Jordan Drew dance a modern ballet above the Golden Gate Bridge. The piece was inspired by the America’s Cup sailboat races which will be hosted in San Francisco in 2013, and a desire to express the beauty and grace of the fastest sailboats on Earth through dance.

“Aloft” was shot in stereoscopic 3D by Golden Gate 3D on Red Epic cameras with the Screen Plane Steady-Flex 3D rig and Canon C300’s on the Genus Hurricane 3D rig.
