Catharsis, short film from John Slater

I co-wrote a song called Catharsis and asked my partner, Jennie, to choreograph a dance piece. Together with Ryan LoGistic Harston they performed this beautiful duet.We had less than four hours to film it as the location was in The Holt café in Sheffield during opening hours so customers watched the performance several times. I used everything I had which was very basic. Shooting with my Nikon D800, 4 disco lights and my skateboard as a dolly. I'm really happy with the results but as this is my first video, I'm keen to do more but unsure where to invest my very limited budget.Enjoy!John.
