Threshold: A Short Film by Steven Ruggiero

A dance film in which a man discovers a portal to another place.

I shot Threshold in August of 2022 in collaboration with choreographer Bo Belza, along with an amazing cast of dancers who brought my vision to life. Our goal was to create a combination between a narrative short and a dance concept video. The end result was a unique blended narrative-music video that I'm very proud of.

Threshold was made possible by a generous grant from the William F. DiPietra Foundation through Fordham University. I am extremely grateful to Helen and her family for the support that allowed me to pursue this project! I couldn't have had a better cast and crew to create with.
