349 (short dance animation, 3:05) Created with hundreds of pencils and hundreds of hands, “349” is a collaborative animated dance film that explores the idea that we’re all imperceptibly connected. To create “349,” a dance performance was videotaped and converted into a series of still frames. Over the span of two years, 349 different people each redrew one of these frames after being asked to “draw yourself and someone with whom you have a significant connection.” The resulting drawings were scanned, sequenced, and synced to music to create the short animated dance film. 2016 New Orleans Film Festival, New Orleans, LA; 2017 Film Society at Lincoln Center + Dance Films Association’s Dance on Camera Film Festival, New York, NY, and National Tour; 2016 Cucalorus Film Festival, Wilmington, NC; 2016 Paris International Festival of Animated Film, Paris, France; 2016 Tallgrass International Film Festival, Wichita, KS; 2017 Dance Camera West, Los Angeles, CA; 2017 Topanga Film Festival, Topanga, CA; 2016 DCTV + Dance Films Association’s Long Legs Short Films, New York, NY; 2016 Dallas VideoFest (Jury Prize for Experimental Short), Dallas, TX; 2016 San Francisco International Festival of Short Films, San Francisco, CA; 2016 Video Art And Experimental Film Festival, New York, NY; 2016 Salamanca Moves MOVE-ies (Audience Vote Winner), Hobart, Tasmania; 2017 Third Coast Dance Film Festival, Houston, TX, and National Tour; 2016 American Dance Festival’s Movies by Movers, Durham, NC; 2017 Denver Film Society Women + Film Festival, Denver, CO; 2017 Cascadia Dance & Cinema Festival, Vancouver, British Columbia; 2017 Experiments in Cinema, Albuquerque, NM; 2017 Cine Corps Paris, Paris, France; 2017 Capitol Dance & Cinema Festival, Silver Spring, MD; 2017 C.A.R.
