Lady of the Sea

A Short Film
An inside look
Chelsea and I spent 17 rainy days in French Polynesia filming this while we waited for a weather window to film a separate project.

The first half of the trip felt like an uphill battle. Everything we tried shooting didn’t feel “right” and we were feeling pretty uninspired, even in one of the most beautiful places on earth.

In a wave of creativity and energized focus, Chelsea and I came up with the concept for ‘Lady of the Sea’ and excitedly wrote the beginnings of the narrative down in my journal. The moment Chelsea got in the water wearing the dress, we knew this would be a pretty unique project.

What lessons has the ocean taught you?
