Thank you so much to everyone who watched GREY MATTER yesterday and gave your opinions and feedback. It was great to have a test audience as I have been trying so hard for 6 months since its completion to keep the video secret! I will be submitting to the Vancouver Short Film Festival as well as Dancefilm Festivals. Currently it is in the Dance Camera West Archives in LA serving as an example of this emerging art form made right here in the 604!
SIREN SONG is currently in the final stages of production and I will be releasing a teaser fairly soon. Immerse yourself in the story and symbols of the still images and writings until then and please do engage with it! Making the art is the “how” part of it - communicating it is the “why.”
Other exciting news: Work is underway on MORE projects but they are top secret (for now!)
Please share this page if you like what you’re seeing/reading! I’m applying to festivals and for many other things so if there is indeed an engaged audience it would be great for the page to reflect that.
Supporting Dancinema is not just supporting me but supporting MANY local artists. One of my principal motivations and interests is bringing together multiple creative people in these directed projects to showcase their talents as well.
Thank you to all of those who made GREY MATTER what it is!
Chersea Music for your inspirational music
Newman Productions for your great creativity and still from cinematography to editing
Hayley, Courtney, and Sam for being wonderful dance collaborators and trusting me!
And Essence of Dance inc. for providing the interior space and most of our dance training.
SO excited to continue these projects!
