PH Dance- "The One I Wanted To Be" Narrative Short [Trailer]
This film began as a dance piece and evolved into a full narrative vision of kinesthetic expression, evoking emotions of melancholy, sadness, and a reflection about gender hierarchy. Based on the vision of Director and Choreographer Paula Higa and shot on location at Studio Juju featuring visual art and design by Jennifer Karson, this film hybrids artificial intelligence, visual arts, and dance. The full film will be released soon at https://www.paulahiga.com/
