The Dancer (2011) Trailer
Trailer for the short film The Dancer.
100-degree heat. 2-man crew. 4-day shoot. 1-man cast.
Shot on location in a remote village in India, The Dancer is an inspiring true story of resilience and courage. A young orphan boy in India struggles through strife and circumstance to make a better life for himself.
All dialogue was based solely on interviews with Satish, who speaks only Telugu, and direction was given through a translator. With only two days of planning and four days of shooting – and despite the communication barrier – a connection was made during production that transcends language and inspired everyone involved in this whirlwind project.
