This is a commercial for Rebekah Iliff and Ricky Quiles' company, Boxers & Ballerinas based in Los Angeles. The company provides classes taught by professionals in both art forms for all ages. In addition to directing and shooting this myself I also created the theme music. Michael Stoecker was the crew. It was shot on the RED with Nikons.
This video gives an insight into the filmmaking processes used by the director Derek Cianfrance, director and co-writer of The Place Beyond the Pines and Blue Valentine. The video footage has been sourced from both the films, and the audio is taken from the amazing directors commentary on each of the DVD's. I have been interested in the work of Derek Cianfrance since I saw The Place Beyond the Pines and the directors commentary really just affirmed his ability to encourage method acting and put so much thought and passion into each of his films. I thoroughly recommend if you are a fan of either of the films.
The music used in this video is The Wolves (Act 1 and 2) by Bon Iver. Just as a disclaimer this video was made for education purposes only and was in no attempt to infringe copyright laws. Edited by Amber Rawlings, using iMovie, 2014. Enjoy.
