Adi Halfin Sits Down with Free the Work

Adi sits down for an interview with Free the Work about remote directing and keeping the creativity flowing even when social distancing.
 
"Adi loves to challenge the borders of filmmaking and get involved in as many disciplines as possible – be it dance, fashion or fine arts. Music and dance are her biggest passions and she strives to showcase this passion in every part of the aesthetic details in her expressive works..."

Creating in Isolation 


Adi Halfin collaborates with musical artist, Asaf Avidan, and dancers around the world to create two music videos that redefine the boundaries of collaboration and creativity. Through her use of user-generated material as well as self-directed content, these pieces reaffirm the innovation of the human spirit to the tune of upbeat Israeli music.
 


 


"I wanted to get closer to the dancers, see their faces and their movements, so I asked from whoever could, to send me both wide-shots as well as hand-held shots. I think the fact that some of them were shot by their partners, gives the dance and the camera movement a special intimacy, which is really unique."


"Funny enough, this Covid situation, is releasing a lot of beautiful humane gestures, despite, and maybe as a reaction to social distancing." 

-Adi Halfin, Director/Editor
