Shake Off is a HD recorded dance film in one continous shot. The smooth camera, not interrupted by cuts, follows an exceptional dancer as he moves magically through different times and spaces. The athleticism and bold surprises lure the viewer into a dynamic world which teeters between the impossible and the real. The dancer can’t or won’t stop dancing till he finds his goal. Starring Prince Credell.
