Thanks to your votes, the documentary profile “Marcelo Gomes: Anatomy of a Male Ballet Dancer” won this weekend’s Project of the Week contest!
Congratulations to “Marcelo Gomes: Anatomy of a Male Ballet Dancer” directors David Barba & James Pellerito. The filmmaker will receive a digital distribution consultation from SnagFilms and the film is now officially a candidate for Project of the Month, the winner of which will receive a consultation from the Tribeca Film Institute.
Marcelo Gomes’ artistic ability matches his technical prowess. Our documentary will capture this dynamic equilibrium with a mix of rehearsal, performance, interview and verite footage of Marcelo traveling the world as a guest artist in Asia, North and South America and Europe. The film will delve into a brief history of the male ballet dancer and explore what separates a good partner from a truly great one. Marcelo knows the career of a dancer is brief and he has started choreographing. With his reputation on the line, does he have the talent and drive to become a serious choreographer?
