Archived: The Half: a short drama about a dancer

iCrowdNewswire - Aug 15, 2015

The Half

The story of the project

‘The Half’ is a short drama, following first time lead principle dancer Lucy, in the half hour prior to going on stage as she struggles with her internal fears, self doubt and worthiness. Does she does deserve this? Has she worked hard enough? Does she have what it takes to perform? Can she handle the pressure?

inspired by Simon Annand’s  -Photographic series The Half , the technical creativity of Alejendro Gonzalez’s Birdman and the relevant themes portrayed in Black Swan. We believe that ‘The Half’ is a story worth making so the themes expressed can be given a voice and an audience.

We think a good story deserves the best possible chance for success and recognition. On so many projects, small elements are over looked or put in the ‘too hard basket’. A film, like any other project needs to be cared for and nurtured. In order to make The Half the best film we need to surround ourselves with the best people, equipment and passion – and although dedication and passion are free, the tools that we need to get us to the end are going to cost.
