Synopsis: This is the first adapted “duende” short from Tina Love’s feature script “The Red Shoes” about a Lutheran pastor’s wife who defies her husband and jeopardizes her family life to dance again and save her soul. In this short, after a long break from the dance world to please her husband and raise a family, Camille meets her former gypsy dance teacher in the park for a secret lesson. This lesson was more than she bargained for, but she leaves with a renewed fire to dance again.

Director's Statement

“Duende: The Red Shoes“ was shot in one day as a proof of concept video for Tina Love’s award winning feature screenplay “The Red Shoes.” She had just enough money to pull together some flamenco dancers and actors who believe in the project to do a one day shoot in Santa Barbara with no rehearsals.
The script is actually set in Albuquerque, New Mexico, but all we can do is work with what time and resources we have available to us and make it happen where we can

Director's Bio

Tina Love lives in Santa Barbara where she co-produces movie projects as a writer/director and editor (or some combination of these) with local clients. She has also been an editor for other filmmakers, such as humanitarian filmmaker Emmanuel Itier and her ex-husband, Michael Love. Her films have screened at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, the San Luis Obispo International Film Festival, the Ojai Film Festival, the Ventura Film Festival, Lady Filmmakers Film Festival (Beverly Hills), Artemis Women in Action Film Festival (LA), Bare Bones Film Festival (Muskogee), Big River Film Fest (Savannah), Park City Film Music Festival, Albuquerque Film & Music Experience. Two of her short film projects were licensed to ShortsTV. Tina has several spec screenplays and 2 serialized TV drama pitch packages (one with a pilot script and season/episode outline, the other a short form documentary introducing the cast of characters and the dramatic content). Alongside filmmaking, for the past 18 years, Tina has been a flamenco dancer, as well as a promoter of the art of flamenco as a show producer (in 2018- 2019 her flamenco tablao events being at the Four Seasons Biltmore, Santa Barbara). Her screenplay “The Red Shoes,” a project that marries her two vying loves of flamenco and film, has garnered awards in several screenwriting competitions over the years, including LadyFilmmakers and more recently the script development program sponsored by the Female Eye Film Festival (Toronto, Ontario Nov. 2019).
