Midnight Automaton

A choreographed animation of a Golden Handmaiden automaton.

I direct films, documentaries, and live performances. My current work includes the film ‘Where the Robot Things Are’ that is a love story between a rat and robot tasked with guiding humans out of landmine field; ‘Deported Veterans’ is an ongoing series using immersive/360 video to share the stories of American military veterans who have been deported; Midnight Automaton’ riffs off the ‘Golden Handmaidens’ of Greek mythology and during the performance a dancer playing an automaton distributes plastic roses before being blessed Pinocchio style and she transforms into a tap dancer before returning to her automaton state!
