Welcome to Sun Dancer. Maya Simone is a dancer, model and actress living in Boston. This short film was shot in super slow motion at 240 frames per second with the Sony RX10 MKIII to focus on the delicate fine motor skills of a professional ballet dancer. Maya was was a real trooper for this shoot, showing up on set before dawn at the Boston Public Garden on a cold New England morning. Her wardrobe was basically a thin lace top and dance tights – not your typical outdoor clothing for a chilly November day. Between takes, we kept her warm with a heavy winter coat – something you would never know by watching her graceful movements captured in super slow motion for this short film.
