I declare myself to be a filmmaker committed to the principle of multidimensional film making, in as much as all my previous careers ( photographer, drummer, singer, writer, graphic designer, storyboard artist) shall contribute to making films of transcendence and inspiration.
The human heart has its own consciousness, and films can transform lives.
Films can cause paradigm shifts, or shifts in consciousness, whether audiences are aware of it or not. I don't know that Frank Capra, Hitchcock or Stanley Kubrick - or any other filmmaker I admire, for that matter - would use the terminology I use here, but I suspect their aim would not have been that different from mine: filmmaking that elevates the human experience.
I aim to make and produce films which alter the vibration of people's hearts at their most profound chore. A film can do that because, in its essence, it is a living entity; it is alive. I am not talking about making what is known as 'feel-good films', which is a very limiting concept; exploring something new will not always 'feel' so good.
Why am I concentrating on effects on the heart?
Here's a unique premise concerning the power of that mighty muscle (from the Heartmath Institute):
'The heart generates the body’s most powerful and most extensive rhythmic electromagnetic field. Compared to the electromagnetic field produced by the
brain, the electrical component of the heart’s field is about 60 times greater in amplitude (amplitude, size, volume), and permeates every cell in the body. The magnetic component is
approximately 5000 times stronger than the brain’s magnetic field and can be detected several feet away from the body with sensitive magnetometers.
Basic research at the Institute of HeartMath shows that information pertaining to a person’s emotional state is also communicated throughout the body via the heart’s electromagnetic field."
Imagine films that have such an impact on the heart and the brain and, ultimately, on people's lives. We all remember films that had a big impact on us. I would say they already operate according to the same principle.
