Exercise Four: Cinematography (Part 2)

Working with a partner, create a 5-7 minute performance piece focusing on Cinematography using Zoom.

Use one of the following chapters: Chapter VIII: The Queen's Croquet-Ground; Chapter XI: Who Stole the Tarts; Chapter XII: Alice's Evidence as a starting point for the development of an original script and performance. Feel free to edit, delete, and manipulate the original text.

Specifically consider the following issues:
How can you move the camera?
Carry a laptop?
Zoom on a cellphone?
Can you do this outside?
How can you do cinematography on Zoom?
Can you invent a way to make a cut?
Fade to black?
Can you tell a non-linear story over Zoom?
