Having studied film and dance professionally, Kayla Jeanson employs an improvised and evolutive approach to filmmaking, which equips her well for work in documentary cinema and live event filming environments. She loves deeply investigating what makes an industry move, and she often will do company profiles or making-of videos to reveal the hard work of folks behind the scenes of projects and companies.
Kayla’s signature style of filming movement, informed by her background in contemporary dance, has established her as a specialist in screendance and circus film. She has developed a method for performing arts documentation called cinematic documentation: through continuous filming and choreoraphed camera work, the audience experiences a performance that is subtly filmic while preserving the actual performance’s timing.
