So for shoot day 3 we shot the middle dance sequence "The Struggle" and was faced with our biggest challenge of the shoot: the twist. This struggle is actually all in the captive's mind and her masked captor is actually a figment of her imagination as she fights against the fear holding her prisoner.
We decided to capture this with a continuous circling shot around the both of them but as soon as the scaffolding comes into frame our Masked Dancer Zoe "vanishes"/ducks out and then the Captive keeps struggling by herself. We shot this several times and the result proved to be quite success especially in the edit.
Post-Production was an interesting process as the short film edits were cut to a random song with a strong beat. After picture lock we have been working with a few different composers to find the right tone for a dance piece.
