In These Four Walls Trailer
Working on Community Arts Films provides us with opportunities to film in stunning locations such as the imposing Great Hall in Winchester. The Hall featured as the backdrop for a new dance work by Hampshire choreographer Liz Richards. Performed by 20 members of Hampshire Youth Dance Company and 20 members of the local community, the history of the building and its striking architecture is juxtaposed with the fluid beauty of contemporary dance.
‘In These Four Walls’ was the first 20:20 Vision project, a series of exciting commissions over several years by Hampshire Dance that celebrated 20 years of achievement and innovation and looked forward to the future development of this fantastic organisation. Here at Cass Productions, we produced a dance for camera film as well as a short trailer to promote the project and raise awareness of the achievements to date. We regularly work with a wide variety of dance organisations in Hampshire, Surrey, Wiltshire and London, a legacy of our initial base at The Point, Eastleigh.
The project is supported by Hampshire County Council, and Arts Council England and the National Lottery and the Community Arts Film was directed by Gary Cassey for Cass Productions.
