Kera MacKenzie and Andrew Mausert-Mooney, co-directors of ACRE TV will facilitate a three hour (with breaks!) workshop in which all participants will learn about and make LIVE and LIVE-TO-TAPE TV! All ages and experience levels are welcome, no equipment is required, though if you have a laptop or camera please bring it. In this workshop we will:
- Look at some examples of live artist-made television, especially dance shows!
- Take turns doing a multicam edit of footage from The 48203 Dance Show!
- Set up a multi-cam livestream and practice live switching!
- Broadcast our finished edits live on ACRETV.org!
Bring lunch! We’ll provide snacks!
The 48203 Dance Show is an installation inspired by the under-recognized archive and legacy of The New Dance Show, through spatial workshops and a culminating dance showcase for youth and community members of Highland Park, Michigan and surrounding Detroit neighborhoods, our goal is to reflect and hold spaces where community members can amplify their voice and see themselves reflected within the history of the neighborhood and city they live in. ACRE TV will be collaborating with William Marcellus Armstrong and The 48203 Dance Show to facilitate this TV making workshop.
Kera MacKenzie and Andrew Mausert-Mooney are Chicago-based interdisciplinary artists working primarily in film, video, live broadcast, and installation. They maintain individual and collaborative practices and together founded ACRE TV. Their projects together have explored transmission; seams in the scenery; liveness, simultaneity and typologies of time; and the possibility and politics of making new images.
