Opening on a lone male figure, Ben Shirinian’s two-minute film pulls its viewer into the world of dancer Guillaume Côté as he loses himself to his movement in an undefined, mysterious space. Combining live action with subtle visual effects, Lost in Motion encapsulates the precision and technique of the dance to beautiful effect, exposing the strength and athleticism behind it.

Powerful. Elegant. Stunning. It actually gave me chills the same way old videos of Baryshnikov give me chills.

This spot made me look for Guillaume Côté on the net.

Beautiful choreography which makes you sing after looking at this amazing performance.

Had this been a lady it would've been termed inappropriate : |
Jokes aside.... must say a beautiful spot... Might be a biased view but for me, a guy with two left feet, well executed dance is always beautiful..

Great performance. I'm not sure about those "attachments" but still they don't ruin it for sure, nonetheless i don't think they add something to it.
His movements and elegance of every gesture is perfect. Great to see that Ballet is aware of what is the most powerful argument for going there.

Beautiful choreography and photography, but the music didn't really fit for me.

Very good choreography and nice twist at the end, though the chroma keying is poor.
