Shall We Dance?

Shall We Dance? from Jarrod Whaley on Vimeo.

A dance film, featuring Ann Law and Dennis Palmer. And Fred and Ginger.

Elevator music used in THE GLASS SLIPPER

I actually recorded this on my iPhone and then used it in the film.

Is Vahe lurking distantly in every photo ever taken?

SFO, guerilla-style (note the gentleman about to question me).


Alejandro Adams on THE GLASS SLIPPER

For HammerToNail: “The Glass Slipper doesn’t drift off non-committally in the de rigueur style. It has a perfect ending, not only tidy but inevitable. And that may be the film’s most remarkable and marketable aspect: its purposefulness, its thrust, its ability to carry us to a destination. The final scene is executed in a nihilistic deadpan, and we’re left to muse that life can be profoundly tentative, even hopeless. And gosh that sure is funny.”
