I’ve worked on so many projects this year, but easily the biggest one would be the “AmalgaMOTION” initiative. Back in June, connecting again with Director, Adam Daniel Mezei (who I first met in February on the “Howlin’ Circus” short film), Adam asked me to create a full length documentary about the ambitious dance video he was directing (along with co-director/dancer Crystal Finn-Dunn).
So over two very long nights at Millworks Creative Studio in Dundas, ON., the crew and 12 dancers of 12 different genres, all worked to create something magical! And along with the production, my team (Ava Wild, Sean Caesar, and myself) ran a second production shooting the documentary.
It was a busy summer putting together that 30 minute feature, and then was a cool moment to see it shown on the big screen, for our cast & crew premiere in September (recap video here). It’s also been amazing to see the main dance video win over 10 awards worldwide, and now the documentary is being submitted as well, so we shall see what the new year brings!
This project was such a growing experience for myself (including getting my first Director’s credit on IMBD) and I’m grateful for the opportunity to have connected with so many amazing people on this project, and most specifically Adam Daniel Mezei, as I forsee us working on many more projects in the future!
The video above is the 1-minute trailer for the documentary, and the full 30 minute video will be available to watch in the new year (after film festivals), so I’ll be back with an update! You can also watch the trailer below for the main-dance video.
