Project Overview

Play is a collaboration with Jack White and Ian Kinsler’s baseball company, Warstic and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. The 3 minute short film evokes the cinema of Nicolas Roeg and Spike Jonze with its handheld camera work, detached protagonist and digital cinematography.  Another theme of the work is the use of wood which is used both in craft of creating a baseball bat and the use of creating a violin and bow. The work was a commission from the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and features their section violinist, Lydia Umlauf.
