Above The LightScreen dance collaboration (April 2016)

Project Info

Having worked with Heike Salzer on a number of previous projects; this one happened organically. I had recently completed a number of compositions for my Max/Min EP and wanted to create something visual to go with it. Heike came on board to direct the video; we were joined by Jennifer Essex as the dancer and Andy Harrison as cinematographer. As it turned out, we were looking for slightly different visual styles in the final edit; so this version is different to the version I used to go with the EP (the music is also different, I created a longer version of my piece 'Into The Light' for this project). It was a great experience to be involved with the visual side of things as well as the music; although I already had some experience of shooting film from previous projects I had always worked alone without the privilege of experienced visual artists who know how to make things look good!
