Scintallation Fire Troupe :: Experimental
The secret is in the breathing.
I take all shoots very seriously. Before filming I’ll often get actors to do some breathing exercises first – one of the tricks I learned studying drama at Yale. Sometimes it works. Sometimes people just get lightheaded, which can’t be all bad.
This was more fun with the Scintillation Fire Troupe. That’s the lovely Jessica Baraff doing her thing. She likes the breathing thing. And after about fifteen minutes with a motivation and a metered breath, something was stirring behind her eyes, which seems to make this piece a little more than just the flames and leather.
