I am beyond excited to be included as a Chicago Dancemakers Forum GREENHOUSE artist. I am using this opportunity to develop my new project Brought to You By, a series of satirical dance films packaged as commercials. Through this program I'll recieved $4,000 for the development of the work and my mentor/cinematographer and collaborator on The Wayward Wind will recieve $1,000 for advising on the project. And so honored to be included with this group of artists: Erin Kilmurray, Elysia Banks, and Megan Young.
The Wayward Wind, the music video I co-directed with Steve Delahoyde for Carl Sondrol's song, will be making its international premieire at the Brussels Independent Film Festival in February!
We've been in the studio creating material for our upcoming residency at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. Peep this clip, made easy by x2 speed.
We shot so many beautiful setups on Nature Body Light but not everything made the final cut. Here are some clips that didn't make the cut, but are beautiful in their own right.

Excited to announce that in August I'll be headed to Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art their Performance Lab. I will be creating an outdoor site-specific performance in their coming Chihuly exhibition using dancers from Chicago and community dancers from the Northwest Arkansas area. We will be making a short film documenting this performance, as well as other site-specific dance films around the museum. Thanks to Sara Segerlin and Samantha Sigmon at Crystal Bridges for making this happen!
More info can be found on the Crystal Bridges site.
