A Dance Film posted by on May 7, 2010

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”.
