Dance Film: THE VEIL OF ACUMEN, 3min., Canada, Dance

74b0482472 poster

Dance video with a focus on questions around identity and its fluidity, meaning that culture and popular media create a define imprint on people’s unconsciousness and the way we see ourselves and others in the world

In this piece is a visualization of how people see others in “a package.” We all have our own bias and ideas around chosen cultures and ideas which are more likely have been formed through the influence of popular media, socio-political context and most importantly person’s surrounding. When a person says he is coming from from a particular country, people tent to immediately transfer their personal associations and ideas on to him/her and create an invisible “shell” of stigmas and stereotypes.

Short Film: FORMS, 3min., South Africa, Dance

78899a58f3 posterThree art forms: dance, music and film combined on a single canvas in an audiovisual explosion!

A coming together of three creative forces, FORMS sees hip-hop artist Rouge, choreographer Rudi Smit and director Alex Fynn collaborate on a dance music video that highlights their respective talents and presents it in one neat package. Set in an apocalyptic future, circa 2034, where groups are forbidden from mobilising and are closely monitored to prevent them from challenging the overarching control of the city, a small mob of individuals comes together under the leadership of Rouge to unite against the system. “The aim of the mob is to make some sort of powerful but peaceful statement that challenges the security. That they don’t have the power to stop these rebels from being united for change.”

Short Film: MIRRORS, 3min., Germany, Music Video

041dec6c2e posterThe music video for “Mirrors” unites the extraordinary sound of composer and multi-instrumentalist Julian Scherle with the magic, mysticism and magnitude of Iceland’s nature. Scherle’s cineastic sound, accompanied by alternating visual structures and breathtaking landscapes, evokes a wealth of overflowing emotions within the viewer. Fantastic Iceland shots and fascinating visual effects create mesmerizing, dream-like sequences. The video was produced by Cologne-based agency GROSSE8 and filmed under the direction of Manfred Borsch. “It’s about chaos; about ugliness transforming itself into something positive,“ says Borsch. “Stress and anxiety dissolve through isolation, clearing the view for the beauty of everyday things.”

Julian, aka Són, is a German-raised, Los Angeles-based composer, music producer, multi-instrumentalist and artist. Scherle’s music has been featured on high profile and critically acclaimed projects such as “American Horror Story” and “Scream”. He helped shape the score of the hit show “Mr. Robot”, which won an Emmy for Outstanding Music Composition for a Series in 2016.

Són’s first release, “Rituals” was created over the course of 2016 and 2017 and combines organic electronica with driving rock elements. This work conceptually reflects an exploration of modern day rituals and their influence on mankind. After the completion of Rituals, Scherle passed along the concept to five befriended directors to visually explore this topic and gain different perspectives as a collective.
