Let’s Dance

“Let’s Dance” a TV for 2 short film from John Alan Thompson on Vimeo.

The blurb: The everyday distractions of work, bills and technology inflict a thousand cuts on the most important thing in our lives: love. Filmed in stop-motion with live actors in a world made entirely of paper, Let’s Dance is the story of one couple, as their connection struggles to survive the mundane and chaotic forces of the modern world.

John Alan Thompson is an American director whose short films have screened at prestigous festivals such as Sundance and Tribeca. He’s also directed ads for Google and Redbull. This film was sponsored by Playboy TV’s “TV for 2” for film festivals.

This film is cutesy but cleverly made and I found myself wondering if dancing was a metaphor for sex, especially since Playboy funded it. Thus, I’ve put it in the Film Festival section. Worth it for the porn/dance scene alone.

Length: 4:27
Director: John Alan Thompson
