Awakenings, Dance Film Jan. 2021 PC: Nate Sheppard

Awakenings is inspired by a journey that awakens the soul to uncover the beauty and depth lying within us, discovering the courage to move through struggles, losses and hardships in order to discover a new perspective on the other side and awaken hope.  

Awakenings was filmed in Northfield Minnesota, and is set to traditional Nordic folk music arranged by the Danish String Quartet, with Costumes by Amy Hill, Film by Nate Sheppard Media and Direction and Choreography by Jolene Konkel.
