The Metaphysics of Filmmaking or How We Became Indie Alchemists

Posted: July 21, 2012 in Uncategorized

It’s no secret. Maganthrie and I are big fans of the New Thought , Ageless Wisdom space. But like they say, be careful what you wish for…because it’s on it’s way. Big time. We’re really coming to terms with this most basic of truths on our latest adventure called – Dream Time.

Dream Time is our first US feature film and a project that represents the coming together of years of meditation on the state of the world, ancestry, identity, spirituality and where all of this might be leading us.

When it became clear that we could not escape the magnetic pull of this project, we began formulating a plan to get it made. One thing was patently clear very quickly. Being thousands of miles from our home turf at the tip of Africa, we would not be able to rely on most of our tried and proven resources in terms of collaborators, money and…money.

What could we pull out of our hats to leverage Dream Time? No problem, we’ve been students of New Thought for donkey’s years, we’ve thought about and been threatening to do something on the metaphysics of film making for at least the last 5 years. Right! We’ll do Dream Time live and direct from the Vortex.

No, the Vortex isn’t a new app, film fund or a hot new club. The Vortex is not a place it’s a state of awareness or actually a vibrational state where one is in touch with the inner being of one’s real self. In other words, getting cozy with that part of self responsible for every good thing that is. Making sense? No worries it will.

Just imagine that everything begins as a vibrational impulse, thoughts, the screen you’re reading this on, the big bang, everything. The Vortex is the clearing house that records, documents and stores vibrational impulses for everything we want until they’re ripe enough to launch into the physical world.

The Vortex works hand in glove with something called the Law of Attraction, which is like a super efficient logistics manager, that sorts through all the stuff we want, pulls the strings behind the scenes so that people, circumstances and resources converge just in time to deliver the goods based on our dominant thoughts and feelings. The flip side of course, is that the Law of Attraction always comes through the good, the bad and all points in between – no exceptions.

What’s this got to do with making a movie? In the case of Dream Time everything, because it’s all we’ve got. Can you really harness the millions of details, people, logistics and cash it takes to make a movie, even a low budget wonder like Dream Time ? All we can say at this point is that we’re on the roller coaster ride of our lives and it feels utterly brilliant! Stay tuned…
