A BTS video for the “Here Dance Short Film”. Great time creating this alongside awesome people. Looking back at the process brings a smile on my face. From imagining the idea to creating the treatment (and storyboard) and then getting to the production days was a sight and vivid memory to behold. Along with a big thanks to anyone who helped in even the slightest bit and the amazing extras the house party I want to take a moment to thank the amazing cast and crew.
A Big Warm Thanks To The Awesome Cast & Crew

Steve Pennine: Grateful for lending some of his filming resources alongside mine and lending his creative eyes in key scenes. Also sharing cool knowledge and being an open and honest guy. Qualities people like me love working with. I had a good time collaborating with him.
