Different / Sleep

With dancers as our guides, we are taken on an exploratory journey through a strange, enigmatic house, encountering glimpses of those who have lived there, past and present. As different scenes and stories unfold, we begin to experience the dark beauty of a space both empty and inhabited. This short, experimental dance film was shot in one take, in one shot, and explores themes of permeance, haunting, and experience.

Director’s Statement

This short originally came from a series of visuals I dreamt up while creating a pitch for a music video. I knew that I wanted the tone to be foreboding but also knew I wanted to focus heavily on dance and movement. This was the collaboration of many talented friends who helped bring to life a pastiche of visuals I had strung together in my head.
