Happy New Year Everyone!
I am a filmmaker in New York City. I will be directing a beautiful short film in 2013 about transcendence. It will mostly be shot in slow motion with very cinematic lighting (when possible).
The idea is to show, without judgement, how we all find transcendence. Whether it’s sitting meditation, smoking pot, going for a long run, having orgasms, doing the dishes, dancing, attending a charismatic church service, or even getting into a state of rage. Anything that makes us forget, for a time, our small ego-selves and disappear into our universal experience.
I need your help! Please post ideas for scenarios or practices that you think would be great to show in the film. (Think cinematic. This will be set to music, so the more visual the better.) Also, if you have a connection to special people, spiritual communities, or sub-cultures that would be exciting to have in the film, please let me know. I’ll be looking to reach out to people and groups for filming in the coming months.
Thank you so much and have a happy new year!
