Shot entirely on drone in a single take, “The Ascension of Ava Delaine” is a female-led, female-centered project boldly revealing a woman becoming more confident, more sexual and more valuable as she ages.
This experimental short marks the directorial debut of Tonya Kay, backed by a diverse, predominantly female team including a female cinematographer/drone operator, writer, producers and sound designer.
Streaming now at ISA TV channel, “The Ascension of Ava Delaine” stars a single actress, Tonya Kay (“Jane The Virgin”, “The Fosters”, “Lone Ranger”), moving through an athletic empowerment fantasy. Behind the scenes, the actress performs four real-time quick changes while sprinting up four levels of the vertical location, to meet the drone on a new floor, in new wardrobe, in a new decade of time with a new set of emotions.
“What you see from the drone front is the movie. What was happening behind those walls was a whirlwind of rambunctious nudity and focused determination”, states Tonya Kay.
