HIDE (2016)

Producer, Videographer, Editor

An experiment with color, Hide captures interpretive movement and tells a story based on the ideas of fear, growth, and struggle. It was inspired by the evolution of the caterpillar into the butterfly; a metaphor for the journey of life. Using experimental editing, sound design, and the body as a "paintbrush", the performer contemplated and interpreted the lyric: do butterflies hide when it rains?

Collaborators: Luke Taylor (assistant camera), Darren Cole (sound bytes), Dia Khatoon-Kabir (dancer)

FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHT (2016)

Editor

Following mood, rhythm and movement, this piece experiments with audiovisual relationships and the effects of political dialogue and mainstream music syncopated with casual nightlife. 

Collaborator: Darren Cole (cinematography, sound bytes)

DREAMLAND (2015)

Producer, Videographer, Editor

Inspired by the theories of consciousness, perception of time and space, and audiovisual rhythm, Dreamland was a collaboration between dancers, cinematographers and sound artists. Elements of interpretive dance, experimental sound and editing styles emerged from the intuitive-based, flexible process behind Dreamland. Through conceptual weaving amongst the artists, a narrative emerged in the final video work that leaves interpretation wide open for viewers.

Collaborators: Matthew Dorado (second camera operator), Tia-Marie Michaels, Mirella Chodat (performers)
