Last Tango in Compton

Award: Graphite Pencil

Graphite Pencil / Film Advertising Crafts / Editing for Film Advertising / 2011

Shot in north London, Last Tango in Compton stars two of the world’s best tango dancers: Gaspar Godoy, Argentinean tango world champion, and partner Manuella Rossi, the world number two. The pair dance a specially choreographed routine overseen by one of the world’s foremost choreographers with a simultaneous set-up of over 20 different cameras following their every move. The pair dance a sensual and beautiful tango to a tough urban hip-hop track (Don’t Stop by rapper Roc C), creating a surprising and stunning contrast.
