Winner of 12 awards including the Grand Jury Award at San Francisco International Festival of Short Films. The Dancer is the true story of Satish Kumar, an 11-year-old orpan boy living in India. Satish is a non-actor who portrays himself and gives us unrestricted access into his world.
Shot on location in Dowlaiswaram, India, the film was produced to raise awareness about homeless and abandoned children in India’s remote Andhra Pradesh region. Satish and his friends live at Grace Children’s Home and speak only Telugu.
All dialogue was based solely on interviews with Satish, and direction was through a translator. Despite the communication barrier, a connection was made during production that transcends language and inspired all involved in this whirlwind project.
Shot over a 4-day period by Seth Stark and Joshua Jouppi in 2010.
In Telugu with English subtitles.
Written, Produced, and Directed by Seth Stark.
Edited by Joshua Jouppi.
Cinematography by Seth Stark and Joshua Jouppi.
Short experimental movie about love, betrayal, death. The idea was to create animated film using photos by Jan Saudek (http://www.saudek.com). I scanned stills from photo album, cut images into layers with Photoshop and animate them in After Effects. Movie contains nudity.
