Sparkle Motion Films is an Austin-based independent film studio and video production company. They have a magic-wand wish to create visual media that promotes equality, heals trauma, and inspires comedy in uncomfortable situations. They approach every story like it’s the last story they will ever tell. They are curious about gender norms, queer relationships, the invisible woman, radical voices in suppressed societies, gun violence, lonely cats, and rising homelessness in Austin.
Their award-winning work has been showcased at hundreds of art, film, and music festivals worldwide, including Cannes: Emerging Filmmaker Showcase, Palm Springs Short Fest, DC Shorts, Outfest, Frameline, Inside Out Toronto, aGLIFF, Big Island Festival, Kashish, and Rockport Film Festival.
Founded by Director, Writer, & Activist: Lisa Donato and Cinematographer & Editor: Jeffrey Schwinghammer.
Sparkle Motion Films presents a new short comedy that is sponsored by The Austin Film Society, Foxy Trot. A married lesbian couple take ballroom dance lessons in a heteronormative class and face their relationship power struggle.
