Originally performed live by dancer Alison Rootberg, and musician Drew Broadrick, “Ophelia” based on the Shakespeare character, explores the character’s psyche through song and dance. I was later asked to adapted Ophelia into a dance film to be screened at Alison’s alma mater Wisconsin University. Being a former ballet, jazz and modern dancer I was thrilled at the chance to tell a story through movement and symbolism. The DP, Samrod Shenassa and I found a beautiful location in the hills of Malibu. We shot there, in a dance studio with a white back drop and in my bathroom. The bathroom shots were very inspired by one of my favorite music videos, Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance”.
For my birthday my father-in-law bought me a DigiLife DDV-5120A. I have yet to find something as cool as this little guy as it had a flip screen so I could view what I was shooting even when the camera lens was pointed at me.
The first day I started using this camera l played around with some of the settings and made three short experimental flims. To view all of them visit Trina Posey on YouTube where I post my art and experimental videos.
