One couple meet, fall for each other, fall into bed, and fall in love — all over the course of this film shot in one take. LEAD/FOLLOW is the story of a relationship, any relationship, told with stylized language, and dance. When they first meet, our unnamed couple think they’ve got it all figured out. But as their relationship deepens, come to realize they’re both more complicated (and vulnerable) than they’d advertised.

Director’s Vision for ‘Lead/Follow’

Can any one short film explain what it’s like to fall in love? How you can’t really know yourself until you let someone else know you? How seeing yourself as someone else sees you is freeing and also deeply terrifying? Probably not! But I hope this one comes close. I hope it’s filled with surprising little delights, because that’s what the early stages of a relationship are. Then there’s also some heavy shit. I think that’s just the way it goes. I don’t think any of us have it all figured out. I think we all have a little baggage. No matter how put together we might seem. And I hope getting to see that can make us all feel a little less alone?
