Film is a collaborative process. Nevejan has a tradition in working with other artists in order to express the inner world. In this film we are thrilled to have found the following artists without whom we would not have been able to leave the visuals of the 60’s behind. Together we found a new language for an ancient human experience.
Seyhan Lee. AI – Guided by humans
We are one of the first, if not the first documentaries to work with A.I. We are very happy to coöperate with the wonderfull Seyhan Lee.
Seyhan Lee is the only firm to develop and innovate A.I. content for brands, musicians and other artists. They work with neural scientists around the world to speak a language that no one else speaks but them. New consciousness demands new visual communication. Their global teams are experts in this new dimension.
“We are all on the cusp of a new reality. At Seyhan Lee, we’re doing our part to help create it by using Artificial Intelligence to give story tellers and brands new ways of expressing themselves. AI is not a god to be placed on a pedestal. It’s an instrument, and only as interesting as the creators engaging with it. We’re using AI to bring to life never before seen films and experiences. Our global team of conscious creators use artificial neural networks to make it happen. The pixels of the old reality are dissolving, and a magical new world is manifesting before our eyes. Those that choose to engage with it with open hearts and minds first are the ones that will make the crossing successfully.
Are you ready?“
Animations by Douwe Dijkstra
The animations in the film are created with the delightful Douwe Dijkstra.
Douwe Dijkstra (1984), Is a visual artist and filmmaker from the Netherlands. He creates video work that is experimental in nature, often showing the construction of the image as part of the narrative. A returning topic in his work is the way society deals with the use of media and media perception.
Douwe studied Illustration Design at ArtEZ. His humorous and socially engaged work combines film, animation and VFX, and includes ‘Démontable’ (2014), ‘Voor Film’ (2015) and ‘Green Screen Gringo’ (2016). As a co-founder of the 33 1/3 collective, he intertwines theatre productions and video projections.
Music by Cosmo Sheldrake
When Maartje Nevejan heard the music of Cosmo Sheldrake for the first time she instantly found the style and rythm for this movie.
Cosmo Sheldrake is a London-based multi-instrumentalist musician, composer and producer. Cosmo released his first single ‘The Moss’ in 2014, which was followed by the ‘Pelicans We’ EP in 2015 and his debut album The Much Much How How and I in April 2018. Cosmo collaborated with Bernie Kruase at The Great Animal Orchestra exhibition at Foundation Cartier in Paris and in 2019 he released a series of Wake up Calls, pieces composed entirely from recordings of endangered British birds.
He has toured internationally, composed music for film and theatre, and in 2015 he ran a community choir in Brighton. He releases music through his own label Tardigrade Records.
“Cosmo Sheldrake perceives the daily world around him, definitely with a child-like curiosity and wonder but also with a fair measure of genius .”— The Guardian
Composition by Michel Banabila
Michel Banabila specially composed music for this film. In an interesting iterative process Michel found the right tone for a mystical experience. Not an easy task.
Music composer & sound artist. Michel Banabila releases music since 1983 and has produced musical scores for numerous films, documentaries, video art, theatre plays & choreographies. His music varies from minimal loop-based electronica, 4th world and neoclassical pieces, to drones, experimental electronica and tribal ambient. In addition to acoustic instrumentation, Banabila uses electronics, field recordings, and snippets from radio, tv and internet.
“There are certain artists whose oeuvre is so monolithic it can be tricky knowing where to begin – the kind of auteurs who exist outside trends and scenes and simply spend their lives forming mountains of published material for hapless listeners to scale. Dutch tinkerer Michel Banabila is certainly one of those, who since 1983 has steadily issued all kinds of material spanning different approaches and styles with an overall inquisitive, leftfield slant whether dealing in rhythms or ambience, field recordings or synthesis.“– Juno daily
