The Silver Rainbow

Promotional Video: GRIOT: “The Silver Rainbow” (Cinematographer / Editor / Animator / Photographer)

We had the pleasure of working with director, artist and educator Tony Whitfield on a campaign companion video for GRIOT Circle. GRIOT Circle is an inter-generational, culturally diverse community based organization serving the needs of lesbians, gay men, and bisexual and transgender elders of color over the age of fifty.

For this project we designed a visually compelling look within budget using stylized lighting and colored seamless backgrounds.

“The Silver Rainbow” was produced in collaboration with the New School and the project was developed in the context of Tony Whitfield’s class, “Design for the End of Life”, and is collaboration between Whitfield, and This Dancerie collaborators, filmmaker Joe Lumbroso and composer Andrew Alden.

We also shot some fun portrait photographs of the cast and crew throughout the shoot. Here are some of them:
