Lightning in a Bottle 2015 was one of the best festivals this summer thus far. The hippy dippy festival fashion was incredible and unmatched. People from all over (mostly the west coast) of all ages came dressed in flow, with sun shielding hats, glasses, hoods, scarves and lacy parasols.
This film brings a totally new perspective to movement as a simple hoola hoop contrasts straight line with circles around a dancer. The all female creative team worked diligently frame by frame to connect the lines with the hoop and their attention to detail is exquisitely pleasing to the eye. This video has won awards all over the world including the PEARL winner-film/ Pool-festival, Berlin. Top ten in Cinema Perpetuum Mobile Film Festival, ANIMA 2013 in Argentina, Baixada Animada in Brazil, Cut Out Fest and the Female in Film Industry in Mexico.
ANNOUNCEMENT – Kenna’s ‘Land 2 Air Chronicles II: Imitation Is Suicide’ dropping on September 3, 2013
Land 2 Air Chronicles II is the second part of Kenna’s three EP series based on the Emerson essay Self-Reliance. On this second installment, Imitation is Suicide, Kenna is stating the clear influences in his work to help define a musical compass while giving credit where credit is due.
Kenna stated, “Music icons like David Byrne and Rick James inspired Imitation is Suicide. I think posing as an ‘original’ without acknowledging your influences is like killing yourself. The chapters and art of this EP speak to those influences all while hopefully dancing between sonics and genres.”
Imitation Is Suicide (chapter one of three) Produced by Chad Hugo and Kenna will be released on September 3, 2013. You can pre-order the EP on iTunes HERE.
