What happens when you leave the world you know behind? When you go to a place where you don’t know anyone, least of all yourself? A world of possibilities unfolds; will you try them on? What and who will you find? Who and what will find you?
Sleepover is a genre-bending short film produced by Nicole Disson and directed by Lily Baldwin. Sleepover pioneers a cutting-edge approach to cinema by using multiple media outlets and art forms for cross-pollination, specifically contemporary dance. The film is based on an enticing narrative that stands on its own, and includes a stylized rooftop dance extravaganza, distinctly troped fashions and original pop song mashups, Sleepover was filmed at The Standard hotel in Downtown Los Angeles and introduced artists across a variety of disciplines.
Already, an amazing team of individuals have pulled together to develop this project over the past six months. We have been fortunate enough to secure an outstanding location in which to set our story: The Standard, Downtown LA, raise enough funding to carry us through production and had an incredibly successful and memorable three shoot days. We now need your help to get us through the film’s final phases of POST-PRODUCTION so we may move forward and realize the fullest potential of this artistic film.
Please join us in our cause to unify a community of artists, collaborating together to create a body of new work that revamps the tradition of contemporary dance while introducing new audiences to an innovative and genre-bending platform.
No amount is too small (or great!) and we all sincerely appreciate your generous contributions. We are almost there. Thank you for joining us in our push to make Sleepover come to life!
