I was recently blessed with the opportunity to work with Piero Basso, an amazing cinematographer and director. We connected on the networking app Shapr and shared over 100 messages talking about our artistic passions, favorite movies, genres, and overall styles of cinema. We found ourselves on the topic of sex and sexuality in mainstream media. We have been conditioned to view this from a predominantly white, male, and able bodied perspective. What was truly fascinating was having the opportunity to explore sexuality from a much grittier and darker place. Something that is an exchange of power, not necessarily love. We focused more on sensuality than being sexually explicit or vulgar. It was truly a fascinating process to both write and act in this production. I'm very excited to expand on this concept in the future and I'll be sure to post clips to my website and social media!
