I had a chance to sit with the guys from Dance With the One, which was almost as fun as seeing the film. The film is one of those perfect storms in independent filmmaking when an exciting story, skilled director, and a good cast create an entertaining experience on screen.
We sat with the director of Dance With the One, Mike Dolan and actors Gabriel Luna and Mike Davis. It was pretty awesome to see the film with this audience, because the film was shot entirely in Austin, Texas. Some of the choices made by director Mike Dolan were just perfect. Dolan did a great job with the tone of the film especially in featuring some amazing music, which I was a big fan of. The film had the right amounts of darkness, love, nostalgia and thrills. From sitting with Dolan, Luna and Davis I could tell the level of passion and chemistry that went into the film. The real gem of the film though, was the performance of Gabriel Luna. His portrayal of a big brother, angry son and fierce protector was a dynamic performance that provides a solid foundation for the film from start to finish.
