FALAFEL

FALAFEL

00:19:07

Two young professionals having an awful morning suddenly meet at a cafe in London. A day that starts out terrible does not have to end that way. The Internationally award-winning film plays like a mini feature, with action, music, romance, moments of humor, and a touch of Bollywood. Falafel is a story about dreams coming true.

AVOID

AVOID

00:06:29

AVOID was conceived as a visceral/visual response to avoiding each other to be safe from COVID-19. By our actions, we create a void, causing grief, fear, anxiety, and hope. We investigated improvisation during both filming and production. Film sites were determined by safety and accessibility factors. Each dancer performed 10 task-based movement scores. In post-production, we blended eight movement performances into one, conveying the narrative that we are all connected in our human responses to the pandemic. The musician/composer wove a tapestry of environmental sounds and musical instruments into a score placed over the pre-edited dances.
