Unlike "The Question" shown here in this gallery, the approach here was not to present a linear narrative, but to create an esoteric exposition of film-art sculpted by the quality of each variable which it was made from: footage; quotes, voice performances, music, merely to suggest a poetic or philosophical meaning through the influence and assimilation of these variables.
I arranged quotes from Marjane Satrapi, Deepak Chopra, Norman Mclean, John Barton, Samuel Butler, Margaret Atwood, Patti Smith, Charlie Trotter, Christopher Alexander, Franz Marc and Carl Sandberg to create the script
I enjoy working with classic literature and quotes -which have a way connecting with viewerers subliminally-for the remarkable utility of harnessing the power of wisdom discovered long before any of us pondered the Universe..
The footage was comprised of my own work, contributions from other cinematographers (Tony Schilling/Barbara Baines) and a film library open to film makers.
. The score was created by two tracks from two different albums by Michelle Qureshi @michellequreshimusic - mixed together to support the arc of the script. ("Crystals" SCATTERING STARS and "Of the Night" from her SEVENTH WAVE album)
. Voice Actors: River Kanoff , Robert Baldwin, Alexandra LaBelle, Leigha Nixon, Ethan.Griggs, Matthew Parrish, Annie Storey and David.Ballard.
Special thanks to the primary voice actors @alexandravlabelle. Robert Baldwin and River Kanoff @rivervitae.
