Starting with a simple but hilarious premise involving a tortilla chip, the film celebrates the magnetic Patrick Hanna, a young dancer with a mischievous twinkle in his eye, who entices his middle-aged mother, played by Shoko Ito, into his surreal dance world." Huffington Post “Taking a simple story with a universal message and injecting it with energy and warmth, Seewald has created a short film bound to inspire and entertain its audience.” Short Of The Week “Momentum is not just an ode to dancing passion, it’s a way of life, a way of living every bit of it. Epic Short Films “The film is a fresh and surprising celebration of dance: the fun and enthusiasm radiate from there.” Cinedans – Dance on Screen “Inventive, original, honest, and witty, Momentum has great energy and refreshes the genre with youthful vigor. Seewald demonstrates a confident use of the film medium to convey the power and depth of the dance experience.” San Francisco Dance Film Festival “Boris Seewald [...] demonstrated that dance films can be hilariously entertaining.[...] It was so refreshing to see a dance film that wasn’t filled with drama and angst” Heather Desaulniers (Dance critic and PhD in dance history) “I really loved Momentum like a breath of un self-conscious fresh air.” Jon Harris – Editor (Snatch, 127 Hours, Kick-Ass, Trance) “What an engaging character! [...] incredibly polished and beautiful imagery.” Olivia Coleman – Actress © 2013 Boris Seewald

The movement was created with an EZ FX Jib Arm with a remote head (Camera Turret PT24) on a simple doorway dolly with 12 feet of tracks. The camera was upside down so that we could get as low as possible to the water and our crane grip, dolly grip, remote head operator(DP), and focus puller(1stAC) rehearsed the shot for a few hours before our performer, Jessica Keeling, got in that freezing water and held still for that long approach. We almost didn't get the shot, but that night, when the whole crew saw the first three shots of the movie put together, we knew we were onto something... www.wanderingeyeproductions.com/Becoming.html

            Based on the dancers own passions of body mechanics and the body as work of art in itself, communication and the love of contact work, "Blind Passion' - Raw Cut" is an explosion of physicality and seductive delight. The dancers and choreography move smoothly, becoming more revealing and dynamic, challenging the audience with intrigue and question. "Explosive and memorable" - Hetty Blades "Jenni Wren is truly a master of contact work" - Laura Cappelle

                    If you lose interest in your dreams you lose interest in everything. I was looking for something is an abstract film about trying. And about failing. A film about arriving and passing away ...

                      A classic high-class striptease performance takes it's time. Anticipation is at the heart of the experience and transforms what could be an instant gratification into a sensual process of revelation. The film is involved with self-revelation and the tender process of transformation and the connections these things have with sexuality. Striptease is a diagram of time elapsing; a pattern of duration. The piece uses technology very simply, which holds a great deal of appeal for me generally. Each picture has it's own audio track, so a different number of images, or a different delay between each image creates both a different film and automatically a different soundtrack. ............................................................................................................................................................ Striptease was originally made in response to a commission from Tank in 1999 and has since featured in various printed publications and screened as part of group Tank screenings including one at the ICA, London. This new version was made and screened in a private group show in London, March 08. ............................................................................................................................................................
