We Are The Knife - Shoot (Stills)


THE LOCATION - The new home of Bludo studios just above Beat Magazine in Richmond.


PATINKA CHA CHA - Setup, rehearsals, and tests...

FINE TUNING THE SETUP - Director of Photography, Jaque Fisher, went the extra mile and really nailed the lighting and camera setup. The footage looks amazing.

PREPARING THE DANCERS - Sid, Rieko, Martin, & Anna (from The Collektive) showed up right on time. Jo Barber (of Rakis Geisha) did an absolutely amazing job on their hair!

SHOOTING THE DANCERS - From first take to last, the dancers killed it. Myself and the rest of the crew watched on in awe as they made every move look completely effortless. A special shout out goes to our Director of Choreography, Sid, for coming up with some absolutely incredible sequences (and also for rapping to a dove, but more on that later).

- Special thanks to Ash & Kit (plus their assortment of trained animals) for coming down to shoot some additional segments.

IT'S OVER! - Thanks to Michael, Annie, & Josh for helping out all day. You were indispensable!

Stills by Michael Ciarlo, Annie Pham, Josh Barr, & myself. Thanks to everyone involved! Full shoot credits coming soon.
