Both the beauty and the sadness of the art form of dance lies in its ephemerality - here one moment, gone the next. With Film however, moments may be frozen, and in the act of being captured they are given long life. My desire is to create dance films that continue to move in the minds of viewers.

One show down and only one more to go Sunday night as part of the  "ReverbDance Festival 20014" here in NYC. It is out of this work that I will create the FIlm, "Phrases for Two", on location here in New York City.

I am working with a cast of brilliantly talented dancers and would love to be able to pay them for their time, dedication, and and devotion to making this Film a reality!  Thank you in advance for your generously. For it is through that very generosity that the Meer visions in my head can be given life, and truly move.

Risks and challenges

To the costly challenges of renting a space to film, hiring a costume designer, and paying the dancers, add the need for the specialized camera equipment, and you can begin to appreciate the financial complexities of such a project. Even so, my determination to make my mark on the dance film scene continues to drive me. This work has to be captured at its best, and I am thrilled at the possibility of this film making it into multiple dance film competitions and festivals with your support.

Thank you in advance for anything you can give!
Blessings!
