    Roqué’s Friday Films (12/11): Pianos Dancing

    Friday has arrived, and today, I am delivering to you a little film that has been so delightful to make.

    Seriously, it was so much fun.

    “Pianos Dancing” is my first attempt at stop-motion animation. This was something I had always wanted to try out, but I had no idea how fun it would be. The film features pianos dancing while bathed in soft golden light.

    I happen to have an adorable collection of miniature pianos (as one does), and this gave me the perfect opportunity to use them and show them off.

    I hope you enjoy this week’s fanciful creation of dancing pianos!


    A couple of days ago, I announced on Instagram that I would be leaving the platform on January 1st of 2021. This is a big deal for me, but it is something I feel compelled to do. In lieu of my presence there, I will still be active on other platforms.

    Roqué’s Friday Films (12/04): Roqué Uncovers Billie Jean

    Hooray for Friday!! It’s time for a new film! This week, I dug deep into my archives and found footage I filmed a long time ago of an afternoon spent crafting together and filming my own version of Michael Jackson’s hit pop song “Billie Jean.” This was filmed in the corner of my bedroom with an old camera that had a strange aspect ratio.

    I should warn you that this footage is very dorky. I have short hair and seem to be taking this undertaking quite seriously! I added some flashy 80’s-inspired graphics and fairly cheesy special effects to infuse some snazziness.

    I’ll be covering more songs in the future.

    Singer/songwriter Leopard Zeppard is the first performer I am featuring in my new music series in which I film a performance on the front porch of their home.

    Leopard sings a meaningful protest song he wrote called “Fearless Love”. We also get to see a glimpse of the hills of middle Tennessee where he lives.

    I hope you enjoy the heartfelt music and picturesque setting in this special showcase.
