Gregory Is A Dancer

‘The life to death story of a compulsive dancer who is born into poverty, sucked up by the fame machine and spat out the other end.’

In 2014 I worked as Green Screen Director Of Photography with Dice Productions on Gregory Is A Dancer, their second Random Acts film for Channel 4 and was commissioned by Balletboyz.  All the action was chromakeyed and composited together to create an environment that was as confusing as Gregory’s life.

It was aired on Channel 4 and is now doing the festival circuit to many a stunned audience, as well as being a Vimeo staff pick.
