“Lady Of The Sea” – A Cinematic Poem Short Film By Emmett Sparling And Chelsea Yamase (2020)

“Lady of the Sea” is a Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Emmett Sparling.

Filmed and Directed by: Emmett Sparling

This is the first short film I’ve made in quite a while and I’m super excited to share it. Chelsea and I spent 17 days in French Polynesia filming this video. The first half of the trip felt like an uphill battle. Everything we tried shooting didn’t feel “right” and we were feeling pretty uninspired, even in one of the most beautiful places on earth.

There once was a lady from the sea
Born from the corals and the currents,
The tides and the waves.
Her home was powerful, ever-changing
and expansive.

In a wave of creativity and energized focus, Chelsea and I came up with the concept for ‘Lady of the Sea’ and excitedly wrote the beginnings of the narrative down in my journal. The moment Chelsea got in the water wearing the dress, we knew this would be a pretty unique project.
