Elana Meta is a dance catalyst, teacher and creative. She is the founder of the META Method, a form of movement that connects dance with the four natural elements. She is one of the largest international influencers in the festival dance community.
Elana came to us with a well known and well established technique and body of work, looking for new ways to generate brand cohesivity & recognizability, as well as new ways to showcase her art and engage her audiences. Together we created a mini-documentary to showcase the META Method brand, the story of where it came from and the impact it is making.
Through the use to 360/Virtual Reality, we also helped bring Elana’s legendary dance to the forefront of a new medium, giving audience the opportunity to follow Elana’s journey around New Zealand, Australia and Costa Rica.
