Re: Hints & tips for creating a portfolio career in Dance

That doesn't read quite the way I meant when I wrote it, sorry - I was struggling with registering and getting the password thingie - I've sorted it now and when I read my last post back it was rude - I am sorry I didn't intend to be rude - what I meant was:

Thanks so much for thinking of her

Very frustrating

How do you get good video for showreels?

That's it really - in groups it's hard to see your performer

Is there an issue with videos having other people (and othe children when younger) in

How do you mark out 'yours'

& what editing packages do you all use?

Re: After graduation....

I don't think it's necessarily a problem - rather just that colour-blind casting is fine in principal but sometimes unconscious bias can occur.

Re: Show reel question

Sorry, I don't know

But I have to say finding good quality video to add to showreels is very hard - other children are often in them or the video is wobbly, or you can't tell at that distance which is yours because of the same costume

It's a nightmare!
