ABADDON from Rogerio Silva on Vimeo.

 

A poem of love and destruction.

Inspired by relationships that test boundaries and go beyond the acceptable; relationships that reduce, erode and abuse until the spirit is consumed. Abaddon is a place of suffering and purification.

Written and Directed by Rogerio Silva
Choreographed and Performed by Harriet Waghorn and Troy Savic

Abaddon uses state of the art computer fluid simulation to generate the smoke effects that brings the CGI ghosts to life. Approximately 1400 hours of simulation time were required to process the bespoke effects, generating nearly 5 terabytes of data.

edifice

edifice from Rogerio Silva on Vimeo.

Edifice is about relationships built very much like a house. Isolated forms bend, flow and connect to create a unified mass. A structure that shelters and nurtures those within.

Directed, shot and edited by Rogerio Silva
Choreographed and performed by Carmine De Amicis and Harriet Waghorn
Music by Alaskan Tapes „Then Suddenly, Everything Changed”

Carmine and Harriet set out to explore a hybrid approach to Latin American dance and Contact Improvisation. The goal was to create devices and qualities to establish a singular body dialogue, starting with the connection principles of both those dances. Together they developed the hybrid partnering language that informed the choreographic process and aimed to explore themes like blurred and permeable boundaries, migration and integration, intuition and growth.

As I watched the rehearsals, I was taken with the honesty of the movement and how Carmine and Harriet supported each other equally throughout. There were no gender roles and I liked that they could reverse their roles and everything would still work. I approached the shoot with this in mind and tried to capture the piece in a way that shows both their weaknesses and strengths equally.

Seeing Dreams

Seeing Dreams from Rogerio Silva on Vimeo.

A girl is lost in the dark until she allows herself to dream.
This is a short video I did after I left my job in the video game industry to pursue a career in filmmaking. I think in a way it mirrors my feelings around that time as I looked for something to inspire me.
I directed, shot, edited and did all the post production. Dottie was shot against a black sheet, on a rotating chair to simulate the camera rotation, and the petals were shot separately and composed.

  1. Asa cum am mai spsus, Apocalipsa inseamna racirea inimilor. Dansul este facinant, muzica pe măsură. Inspirată postare.
