PROJEKT RAW // 0.4
PROJEKT RAW is a series dedicated to the development of movement qualities (power, control, creativity, speed, fluidity) through various concepts.
I recently started to instruct at a small gym in Mexico City (Crosskour) just as my ankle has begun to heal, and although indoor spaces are not my favorite, the people I am surrounded by in this space have helped me to reignite my spark for movement exploration. I’ve had the idea for this run, inspired by my friend, Emiliano Perez, for a few weeks now, but since I’ve been coming into the gym just in time to teach, I hadn’t had time to give it a go. Here are some first attempts.
I decided a few days ago that I would lengthen the duration of the PROJEKT RAW series videos, and I had planned for a longer release with this, however only had one hours to warm up and give this first one a try before running the birthday party seen within the background. Expect PR 0.5 on to be a good bit longer.
[ Similar to RAW in the digital photographic process, the idea behind PROJEKT RAW is to capture and apply all possible information to my movement development, being able to refine the movement into anything I choose via a similar method of processing.
During my movement practice and filming process, I refuse to sacrifice integrity, ideals and methodology in the production process. For each angle, the run was completed fully and with the same intention each time, making sure I do not sacrifice any attribute of movement to better the final production value. Training in this way, you create a base for solid movement development while filming, keeping the consistency of quality movement within the video accurate, while avoiding the act of cutting and pasting runs together to create something refined or whole, which isn’t in reality. ]
