An experimental film that uses dance, a tea ceremony, and experimental photography. All of these elements are cut together and combined to make layered visuals. The title Renaissance comes from, the Renaissance period. The film is a rebirth of an art form, be it dance, film, or music.

On the technical side, Renaissance was made on a budget of $300, and shot in a twelve hour day.  There was only a month to prepare the concept and look of the film. Along with the standard pre-production period, I dedicated a week to choreograph and block the dance sequence.

For more details on the technical side of the film and the actual production, check out the making of post about Renaissance. I will go into specific departments including, cinematography, editing, choreography, music, sound design, and color grading.
