Director Statement

Part of a 9 part series with Black Magic 4K cameras. This was one of my favorites, putting a story together on the fly, using inspirational music, dance studio space at The University of Washington, and an experienced dancer to choreograph the entire piece. An 80's dream come true, bright orange, reds, yellows this was a treat and homage to 80's cinema like Flashdance and Footloose.
