When we Dance

On the night of his wife’s funeral a widower finds an old record of the song that was playing when they first met. He plays it and his wife’s ghost returns to him for a brief moment causing him to question everything he believes in…

Director’s Vision

I met the writer Kenny Wright at Filmquest back in 2018. I was there with my prior short film ‘Malacostraca.’ Kenny dug that film and we hit it off pretty much immediately. After the fest he approached me with some of his scripts and asked if I’d like to direct any that stood out to me. ‘When we Dance’ certainly stood out to me! It’s a powerfully emotional and universally relatable story of love, loss, life, and even perhaps the afterlife. I knew I had to direct it for it would be a fun creative challenge (and one way different than my last short). I am proud of the end result and feel it’s an excellent marriage between Kenny’s writing and my directorial style. ‘When we Dance’ made my dad so emotional he cried. Maybe it’ll make you cry too…
