ReflectionVOID1.5 – Portals on Mauna Loa by Page Films
Recommended: dark environment, big screen, good sound, HD or 4K
Following ReflectionVOID (2017) the portals now float high on Hawaii’s Mauna Loa volcano. The stars continue singing to us so vibrantly, they are literally what we used to be. Sink into the VOID and experience 5.5 minutes of cinematic hypnosis, an abstract astral journey through space and time as seen through the portals on Mauna Loa.
ReflectionVOID1.5 was a solo production by Lance Page, shot in 12 nights over 3 new moon phases above 9000’ on Mauna Loa during the summer months of 2020. Featuring Comet NEOWISE (C/2020 F3). All reflection and focus effects captured entirely in-camera using motion control equipment, tilt shift/fast lenses and a bunch of 1’x1’ mirrors.
For the production of the music, many different sonic layers were combined together to create the endless voice of space. For this project the L.A. group howardAmb is a trio consisting of James Hamblin, Rafe Mandel and Stefan Scott Nelson. Featured in the mix are sections of an original piece of music created by the incredibly talented vocalist and composer Stephanie Dosen (Snowbird, Chemical Brothers, Massive Attack). Also featuring baritone vocals by Santino Rice and strings performed by Joshua Hill. Produced and mixed by John Fryer (Black Needle Noise,This Mortal Coil, WIRE, Cocteau Twins, Depeche Mode, NIN, etc.). Special thanks to the band FM3.
