Al-Kimia (Dance Film)

"Al-Kimia" (Ancient Egyptian for "Alchemy") is a dance film that depicts the four classical elements through contemporary dance. In this project I was the designated Producer in a small team of four, whereby I acquired experience in the role.

Responsibilities included finding a studio, recruiting dancers, auditioning dancers, choreography, set design, set building, risk-assessments, booking equipments, scheduling and budgeting.

On the day of production I was First AD. It was my responsibility to look after our dancer and to assist the director. Misfortune fell upon our D.O.P. as an emergency prohibited him from attending the shoot dates. This meant I filled in the role of assistant camera operator in his absence.
