Statures of Gods Cinematic Visual Poem Short Film Directed by Arthur Valverde 2017

“Statures of Gods is an exploration of the art of movement; either sculpted or through the expression of dance. When the statues of Paris become one with three ballet dancers, captured frozen in jumping movement, truth is found in the shared reach for beauty.

Starring Victoria Dauberville, Thomas Docquir et Paul Marque from the Opera National de Paris.”

“Hoosier Quilt” by Shari Wagner (Excerpt)

We take our fabric from the
Field that Lincoln plowed;
The same earthmound builders aligned
With the movement of stars.
We choose our colors from the trees
As they traveled toward winter…

“Bloch is one of the leading international brands in ballet. With over 90 years of dedication to artists, we set out to create a work that honored this legacy and commitment to the preservation of the arts. With a 35mm film grant from the Kodak Motion Picture Film group, we focused on the introspective loneliness and poetic nature of ballet set against the words of Robin Williams to his students in the film ‘Dead Poet’s Society’ ”

“We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. So medicine, law, business, engineering… these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love… these are what we stay alive for.”

“Lost In Motion II”: A Cinematic Creative Dance Short Film Directed By Ben Shirinian (2013)

“Lost In Motion II” is a Cinematic Creative Dance Short Film featuring music by Leonard Cohen directed by Ben Shirinian.

Directed by:  Ben Shirinian

Choreographer: Guillaume Côté
Dancer: Heather Ogden
Original Story: Ben Shirinian, Guillaume Côté
Producers: Nick Sorbara, Leslie Aimée Gottlieb
Director of Photography: Jeremy Benning, csc
Production Company: Krystal Levy Pictures, AnyMotion

Director Ben Shirinian and Choreographer/Dancer Guillaume Côté expose the emotion of performance in an entrancing sequel, produced in association with Bravo!FACT and The National Ballet of Canada.

After the success of his 2012 short film Lost in Motion, Director Ben Shirinian has reunited with Choreographer/Dancer Guillaume Côté for a powerful new follow-up film exploring the state of mind of an artist.

While the original examined the feelings of isolation experienced by an artist before going on stage, Lost in Motion II develops the narrative by delving deeper into the spectrum of emotions felt by a performer. Produced by Krystal Levy Pictures, the film combines original choreography, stylized art direction and seamless VFX to visually interpret the experience of an artist baring their soul on stage.

“Ballerina”: A Cinematic Nike Russia “Dance Off” Commercial Featuring Endless Noise Remix (2009)

“Ballerina” is a cinematic Nike Russia dance commercial featuring “Endless Noise” remix of Alexander Borodin composition.

Produced by:  Nike JDI Russia

Music by:  Alexander Borodin  (“Polovtsian Dances”), remix by Endless Noise.

Out of the recent Nike JDI Russia commercials for TV and cinema came this long extended remix of the dancer section. The commercial shows a russian ballerina and a funky hip hop dancer, ‘dancing off’ in a huge hall with sunlight flooding in from huge windows.

As the graceful ballerina pirouettes and plies her way around the dance floor topping it off with a grand jete. Her adversary responds with some breakdance action body popping and funky hip hop moves. The two finally reach a happy medium and their routines end in unison.
