A short dance film shot like none before it. Filmed in Slow-motion and retimed to a different beat… a visual spectacle.
Before the dust settles on his life, a young dancer decides to do something about it. He dances off against Death himself in one epic Krump battle.

Dancer: Mark Evans II
Directed by: Sloan Inns
Sloan, his wife and producer Jenna Inns and producing partner Lennard ‘Street’ Rosses, set out to create a never seen before dance film.
“I woke up at 3am and this image of a Krump Dancer flooded into my mind. I could see his chest lock and pop so violently that dust exploded off of it… I couldn’t get to sleep after that,” laughed Sloan.
Based on the curse placed on man, “you were made from dust, and to the dust you will return…” they saw dance as a way to communicate the seeming futility of life and man’s response to it. They set out to push the limits and after much R+D and many rehearsals with Mark Evans II, a professional dancer, they created a new style of dance film.
The filming took 18 hours of which Mark danced the majority of the time. He danced to different music than what found it’s way into the score. The secret, to this new kind of dance film lies in post production. Taking 1 year to edit and retime to a new musical score, the results are remarkable; giving the viewer pause as to how the dancer manages to dance in real time and break into slow-motion while keeping on beat.
The talented crew sacrificed their time and energy in the hopes the film it will be an inspiration to those struggling with what to do between the time they are born and when the dust finally settles on their lives.
