Obstacles can often pull us apart, but they can also be the force that binds us.


This is the framework behind ‘Take Your Time,’ a raw and powerful performance art piece originally created as a music video for 'Lender.' Using time and motion as a vehicle, the film attempts to examine how navigating spaces & obstacles together can strengthen any partnership.

The result was one long single take, filmed in reverse, where dance and camera were choreographed together, giving the film a hauntingly dreamlike aesthetic when played forward in real time.

Take Your Time was directed by Max Sachar, a feature film animation manager at Pixar, and Natasha Adorlee Johnson, a dancer with ODC/Dance and Artistic Director of Concept o4 in San Francisco.  

Lender is a Bay Area based indie-rock band, and their original song  'Take Your Time' is a single from their 2016 release, 'Dad Rock for Moms.'
