3part Harmony:  Composition in RGB #1
Vancouver, BC, Canada 2006.
6 min., 216 feet (65.8 metres)
16mm color with mono optical sound (no dialogue)

This experimental dance film employs a bastardized version of the 1930s three strip Technicolor process. Shot entirely on black and white film through color filters, the images were recombined into full color through optical printing techniques, one frame at a time. The gestures in this dance work explore the psychological fracturing and reunification in representations of the female body.
