This project is about empowering women through movement and being healthy and connected to your own body. Jumprope is usually seen as a toy but here we examine it as a path to self discovery. Slow motion was a tool we wanted to use to tell this story for several reasons; Simply to slow down the rope so people can see what a double under is and also to allow the viewer to experience how she can be connected to the rhythm where thing seem to slow down and are simple. We chose to shoot on a Canon T2i because of it is ability to shoot 60 frames per second.
This is a collaboration between my beautiful wife, Adrienne and Myself. She is really the creative force behind the story. She has always had a passon for jumprope since childhood and we recently started taking it more seriously while doing CrossFit.
