"Work It Out" vs. "Flow" Dance For Camera

These two projects featuring my dance work on crutches held much in common. They were both dance for camera projects involving dancing and skating through an urban environment while staying in range and in frame for a steady-cam operator who followed each movement to the best of their ability. Both projects involved collaborating with director Joey Garfield and since their completion both have received overwhelmingly positive reactions by their respective audiences.

Bill Shannon Art and Life

Above: Food Cultivation and Deer Fence. Being involved in planting food for my family and working on securing the plants from deer, groundhogs and rats has been fun and exhausting simultaneously. I dread battling with fungus or insects and pests but so far I have not had any of those types of problems. I thought I would share these images though not exactly my work in an "ART" sort of way because it is where my creative path has brought me these past months.

Flare to Freeze

Above: Finally pulled off a freeze ( "Crossed-Lean Freeze from Shannon Technique" out of a flare.@ 0:14 Not the prettiest flare ever but sticking the end makes it postable. Been trying to come out of flares for years with something that is more dynamic than just putting my feet down.
