SHADOW SEAS, the second short film from Philip Clemo's Dream Maps album, illustrates a world of scrambled communication and the experience of being 'caught in the machine'. It delves into our shadow sides and explores the total disintegration of form and identity.
Using cutting-edge technology to explore diverse terrains, Philip Clemo and Colin Gray collaborated on this film with Vision Research, world-leaders in slow motion camera design and manufacture. Clemo & Gray explored distortion, destruction and transformation in ways that are ordinarily well beyond our perception.
Shadow Seas was directed and edited by Philip Clemo and the soundtrack comes from the track SHADOW SEAS from his 2016 album Dream Maps, on All Colours Arts.
