The lavishly produced DVD-Box contains DVD, booklet, 20 postcards and our contribution film „Lautlos" (Without a Sound). "Staying true to the ideals of creativity and innovation, with a theme of “Truth vs. Deception”, 20 directors came together to create a ground-breaking collection of short films that use live-action, effects, animation, comedy, action and verité. Twenty 120 remains dedicated to the definition of creative – an original product of human invention or artistic imagination – by celebrating the work of artists around the world." (IdN) The film got honoured within the category „Audiovisuelle Medien: Design“ at the Art Directors Club Competition 2009.

Follow me on twitter! @JasonSilva - https://twitter.com/JasonSilva This video was created by Jason Silva and shot and edited with my friends at Bravo Media, and is non-commercial and for educational and inspirational purposes only. Full credits and clip attributions can be found below. This video was inspired by three big ideas: 1) The ideas of psychologist Nicholas Humphrey who has written of "THE BIOLOGICAL ADVANTAGE OF BEING AWESTRUCK". Basically, our ability to awe was biologically selected for by evolution because it imbues our lives with sense of cosmic significance that has resulted in a species that works harder not just to survive but to flourish and thrive... "Humphrey refers to consciousness as a magic show that you stage for yourself inside your head, which lights up the world and makes you feel special and transcendent... this magical theater provides a reason to live, a love of occupying the present moment, and a desire to sustain it into the future, that over time has proved stronger than anything else, and accounts for humanity’s swift and triumphant success-- Humphrey says “being enchanted by the magic of experience, rather than being just an aid to survival, provides an essential incentive to survive.” "We relish just being here. We feel “the yen to confirm and renew, in small ways or large, our own occupancy of the present moment, to go deeper, to extend it, to revel in being there, and when we have the skill, to celebrate it in words..” Our desire to understand brings exquisite pleasure... and feeds our exploratory voyage, our scientific inquiry, our technological development, and even our poetic self-regard..

Here a telescope reached 11 and a half billion light years into space and delivered an image legible to the layman: an unprecedented expansion of human vision."

He looks comfortable, but beneath his nonchalant exterior is a filmmaker who is deeply committed to becoming one of the best in the business — a filmmaker who can’t stand the thought of mediocrity or disappearing in to the middle. As artists, we all wrestle with offering up our creative work to receive affirmation from others. Along with Jared, we believe it's time to break the cycle of striving for approval and start making our best work for what matters most.+ More details
The video is part of an overall concept for 13&9 design that revolves around the soul of the design itself. As we have been supporting the label from the very beginning on, the conception phase was also a collaborative process of discovery with the owners, focussing on the true essence of their brand. We wanted to capture the contrasts found in 13&9 design (man/woman, black/white, angular/curved) and present them timelessly in the video, reducing the broad product range to the very core of any design, namely points, lines and surfaces. Everything in the video comes from the brand itself. We didn’t want to add or invent anything that didn’t already exist. Even the use of dancers as a neutral projection surface – representing the idea (or soul) of the designer – stems from the history of 13&9. Moreover the video pays homage to great thinkers such as Walt Whitman, Thomas Moore and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, whose thoughts on the human soul are displayed as projected extracts in the video. We knew early on that instead of taking the usual approach of relying on post production techniques we wanted to work with typography, graphic design and animations live on set. As a result, creating these projections and carrying out the tests and rehearsals was the most important and time-consuming part of the collaboration after the concept phase. The video was filmed in one day in a studio with minimal basic lighting and a powerful digital projector. The projections were in part adapted and edited on set.
