I will be returning to Denmark in July to make a dance film piece for the project Human Proportions funded by the Danish Arts Foundation. It will be produced and co-choreographed by my long time collaborator Julie Schmidt Andreasen, who will be performing with co-choreographer Karl Fagerlund Brekke. We'll be shooting at Skagens Museum and the duet will relate to Danish artist J. F. Willumsen's paintings and drawings: I bølgen blå (In the Blue Wave). The film will be shot over two days on location and accompanied by live music. I have worked with Julie multiple times and our last pieces of work made in Denmark were Branches & Bones which was a dance / documentary film of a workshop interacting with nature at Vallø Castle and Transverse shot on a Copenhagen beach - watch the one minute cut of Transverse entered into the 60 Seconds Dance Competition below:
It's been finished for a little while, but with being a bit busy I've been slow sharing a new video I'd finished! Now on Vimeo is my live music video promo for national award-winning function band Vibetown. We lost a lot of time on the day to shoot completely comfortably and everything we wanted and had planned through a problem out of our hands (same old story with filmmaking!) and so I'm very pleased with how it turned out - take a look below:
Today is the last day of the Near Nazareth Festival in which A Film By Abigail was in the official selection and eligible for awards... so fingers crossed there'll be good news to tell soon when I receive the results. Hit me up on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook wherever you do all your social media...ing and please say hello / get in contact / follow my work. Thanks for reading and watching; look out for more announcements soon!
