|An Instagramed picture from Chroma - live blogged on the Preview night.|
I loved the video so much I included it at the top of my Chroma Part 1 blog post, and sent off the link to my PR contact at the Ballet. Only to quickly find out that it was me who had apparently broken the rules, NO VIDEO ALLOWED! Can you please take it down.
Now no-one told me not to shoot video. And house rules, no photography, no phones, no video.. one assumes all are out the window in a situation like this. I was only asked to do what I do - photograph, Blog, Tweet, Instagram, social network the Ballet. Of course I took the video down, I certainly don't; want to bite the hand that feeds me, but then, surely video is part of the future of Blogging and Social Media, when every mobile device that can take a picture can also record sound and the moving image and as well.
So instead, here's a still image of Wayne with the dancers from The Australian Ballet's production of Chroma. Should we be able to see the video as well? Let me know in the comments below and I will bring your thoughts to the Ballet's attention.
And why were we there? I think its because a classical company producing modern ballet is giving modern media a chance to spread the word - Modern Ballet is Brilliant! Check out my shots below, and Part 1 here.. please leave comments and any thoughts about video - mine was shot by a professional !-)
