BBoy filming

By in film, Nightlight

Filming bboys:
In February we decided it was time to do another self initiated film which we had full creative control over. After much deliberation Ben (who would be driving the project) came to the conclusion that he wanted to centre in on some sort of art form and felt that dance would be a great subject matter.
After a bit of googling and facebook fishing we managed to track down a Bboy in Manchester Justin ‘Justroc’ Lie who is very well connected within the Break Dancing community and danced and taught in the Zion  Arts Centre, Hulme.

In the beginning we didn’t really know what the narrative of the film would be or the or what the end goal was we just wanted to see where the filming would take us.

First and foremost we concentrated on some very small highlight videos of each training session. This creation through process approach led other dancers, a particular filming style and eventually a story to root everything around: break dancing charity called Break Mission.
