I just filmed Monica Bill Barnes Company at The Skirball Center in New York, and I was reminded of how much I love what I do—how wonderful it is to film dance that I love for choreographers I admire.

Filming Monica and company

During a post-show talk with the audience, Monica mentioned that however glamorous the dancer’s life appears on stage, she still has to wash her underwear in the sink after the show. Even when I’m complaining about lugging my heavy video equipment around the city, I always know it’s worth it when I get to the performance and behind the camera.
