This short film from Photographer/Director Dominique Palombo features the dance stylings of choreographer John Degois. Filming in the streets of Paris, Palombo continues to re-define dance in fashion film and mesmerizes the eye with the unique and powerful nuance of movement that only dance can offer. The authors of N’ARRETE PAS! (Don’t Stop!) wanted to shout to their audience the timely message,:
No matter what your dream is – nurture it – never let it die – and … Don’t (ever) stop reaching for your purpose.
The current push in the industry towards motion is one that has thoroughly fascinated Dominique Palombo. Directing, DP, are not so unfamiliar from the still world, but it is the ability to edit that has proved to be my most powerful and surprising tool.
It sounds boring, but you learn that it shapes the viewing experience to such an extent that it has more to do with my films being great or terrible, than most people realize.
Along with that, Dominique Palombo had the opportunity to work with dancers in his recent projects and it has opened his mind to new ways seeing movement and discovering how riveting it can be.
The originality of movement can make someone beautiful and compelling, and the opposite is true as well….
Although born in France, Dominique Palombo has spent most of his life in the US, alternating between Paris and New York.
