"Swimmer" is a ballet choreographed by Yuri Possokhov, to commissioned music by Shinji Eshima, along with music by Kathleen Brennan, Gavin Bryars and Tom Waits. The ballet is inspired by the short story of the same name by John Cheever. The ballet was created for the San Francisco Ballet premiered on April 10, 2015 at the War Memorial Opera House.
I worked closely with Kate Duhamel, Yuri Possokhov, the team Photon Creative and all the wonderful people at SF Ballet, to create the projection videos for this action packed 41 minute ballet. I was the Lead Animator and VFX Supervisor on this project and was responsible for the execution of the creative direction from Kate and Yuri.
