Editor for Short Artistic Dance Film, Danielle Teale Dance & Mountain Way Pictures


We are seeking an experienced film & video editor to collaborate on a poetic documentary-style film.

Collective IDentity (CID Project), a programme by Danielle Teale Dance, brings expressive, moving and creative dance opportunities to people with Parkinson’s throughout 2021. Featuring live a dance and music programme directed by Danielle Teale (dance) and Jaka Skapin (music), Collective IDentity is an exploration of togetherness and empathy, in a personal enquiry into compassion, care, identity and collectivity, both on screen and in person.

The major output for this year long, national project is a short, poetic documentary style film directed by Jaka Skapin and Danielle Teale, produced by Mountain Way Pictures for Danielle Teale Dance (Executive Producer). Jaka is also music director for the CID project and will work closely with the post-production team to produce the film’s soundtrack. 

We intend the film to be a poetic, non-linear, movement-centered piece that foregrounds the collective identity of movement through dance. Anticipated runtime is 10-15 minutes.
