Carolina Performing Arts 'Artists are Athletes / Athletes are Artists' BTS Featurette

For the second installment of the 'Artists are Athletes. Athletes are Artists.' series for Carolina Performing Arts, we filmed renowned dancer Michelle Dorrance and UNC soccer star Sam Meza.

The concept was dreamt up long ago by Alison Friedman, CPA Executive and Creative Director, over drinks with her brother Nick. Because the first video was a huge hit, Myriad was challenged to raise the bar for both ourselves, and our amazing collaborators at CPA.

We had cameras rolling on the crew and talent to get a behind the scenes look at the process of upping the ante.

It was just great people doing great things and having a good time while we did it.

Alison's passion was invigorating on set. I wanted to capture her perspective as one of the leading voices in the creative process.

There’s nothing quite like being on set, working alongside incredibly talented artists, in front of the camera and behind.

Artists and athletes alike practice to nail down their techniques, so when they step into the spotlight, everything falls away. They can do what they do best in a flow state. At Myriad, we do the same for our productions and our clients.
