What is B-Roll?
As we patiently await our newest addition to the SkunkWorks dance film collection, let's dive into the question: what is B-Roll?
You have probably heard the term "B-Roll" before. It is pretty popular term within the film industry. But what does it even mean?
MasterClass defines B-Roll as,
"The secondary footage shot outside of the primary (or A-roll) footage. It is often spliced together with the main footage to bolster the story, create dramatic tension, or further illustrate a point."
For our upcoming film, B-Roll served an important role in connecting "the human" to the dance, bringing out the beauty of the innocence of youth and getting lost in a moment. See a fun behind the scenes clip of our dancers working on B-Roll footage from our recent shoot below!
