Wrapped - Black Dahlia Ballet short film

Last week I finished a quick shoot for the Black Dahlia Ballet short film wherein I play the detective.  The film will be about 5 minutes long, and is intended to garner interest for a feature film.  It was shot on the RED camera, and from what I can tell is going to look amazing.  It has a really talented team - Daniel Lynn as the DP, Avi Quijada as the line producer, and Stephen Espinosa and Mary Ablaza as the director/choreographers.  The lovely and talented Adrianne Richards plays Moira, an actress who is playing Elizabeth Short (known as the Black Dahlia) in a ballet about the murder.  Here are some shots from the day of the shoot.

In rehearsal - Film noir ballet

I've been cast as the lead in a noir ballet film about the Black Dahlia murder.  We're rehearsing in an amazing space provided by friends of the choreographers.  I'm excited and intimidated by the challenges inherent in joining such a foreign world and work in progress such as this.  My good friend and excellent actor Adrianne Richards brought me into the project, and after meeting with the director and choreographer they took me on.  I will play the main detective working the case.

There will be dance.
