This is a short film directed by Kevin Jackson and released in 2011 – I viewed the film on YouTube. A pavane can refer to a slow piece of music danced to in pairs and also a processional dance common in the Renaissance. The film’s dialogue is a recital – by Pamela Banks – of a segment from the poem "A Toccata of Galuppi's" by Robert Browning.
the dinner party
Banks plays the vampire queen Laura and the poem is used as a description of her memories of Venice and the film itself a memory of Venice, rendered idiosyncratically modern by the attire of the vampires and illustrated through a medium of a dinner party attended by vampires.
Pamela Banks as Laura
It is an interesting piece, again illustrating the versatility of the vampire by creating a very different little short. Through its length genteel, the black humour of a servant being splattered with blood as he cuts into a victim for the vampires adds a distinct counterpoint to that refined atmosphere. At the time of this mention there is no iMDB page.
