The Shadow Drone Project
Available for Touring 2017/18
The Shadow Drone Project is an exciting and versatile initiative that offers opportunities for performances, screenings, installations, talks and workshops; the main feature being a new duet integrating film projection and choreography performed by Robert Clark and Samuel Kennedy.
Sited in civic and natural environments and filmed from an unmanned aerial vehicle (a Phantom Drone) the film presents a juxtaposition of prescribed choreographic events and the manifestation of everyday human activity. Shot in morning, or late afternoon, sunshine the aerial point of view offers a unique cinematic perspective whereby shadows of people or objects are often revealed to be more present than their actual form.
“The effect? Strange, almost alien, and beautiful."
