Dance Assist Episode 2 – Back Bend

Today I finally shot the second episode of Dance Assist two. Some things I am trying to do differently is to let the humor come through from the object and not force over-the-top intentional humor. I think subtle is better but I am still not quite where I want to be. I took advice from Artist Lauren Henkin who I had watch my video and I got rid of some of the make-up. I think it works better without the loud lipstick. I decided not to shoot this one too many times and obsess over getting it perfect. I want these to move faster and be almost more improvisational.
