You Are Here with Naomi Hummel

I recently photographed the production of a new short film called You are Here being put together by Naomi Hummel. This film illuminates and personalizes the consequences of our stubborn investment in an oil-based economy. Through the focused lens of cinema, theatrical dance and aerial acrobatics, YOU ARE HERE tells a tragic love story between the ocean and humankind, uniting the fury, grace and love of artists from multiple disciplines to pull focus back to the unfolding situation in the Gulf and continue the conscious dialog about humankind’s relationship to oil.

Film Director- Ben Rapson of Breathing Media
Cast- Naomi Hummel (actor, dancer, aerialist), Ryan Barret (actor, dancer, choreographer)
