In 3 distinct movements, 'Beyond: Memoirs in a Time Lapse' takes you on an enchanting audiovisual tour from the electrifying buzz of the present, to vistas of near-future tomorrows: Sparks of Inception; The Pulse of the Organism; From Here to Beyond.
'Beyond: Memoirs in a Time Lapse' relates the seemingly limitless power of human imagination to create and transform on a scale far beyond our own. It is a tall tale of inspiration, courage, determination, tenacity and perseverance through adversity. Shot at locations throughout Abu Dhabi and Dubai, the film's implicit story is about much more than the success of the UAE. What is unfolding in the UAE is a shining, symbolic example of the towering achievements of mankind as a whole.
Showing off the best of 2 years worth of shooting, 'Beyond: Memoirs in a Time Lapse' doubles as Beno's ‘out-of-the-box’ showreel of client-commissioned time-lapse photography work between 2011 and 2012.
The musical score for 'Beyond: Memoirs in a Time Lapse' was composed by the immensely talented Vladimir Persan, a multi award-winning, Dubai-based, Azerbaijani-born, music producer and composer. Vlad has an innate ability for creating music and adding life and soul into moving pictures. 'Beyond' Suite is a dramatic, multi-layered and complex piece of work born out of passion and personal experiences by someone who not only understands the film's subject, but is a subject himself. For such an impassioned creative effort, Vlad's 'Beyond' Suite deserves a study and appreciation of its own.
I kindly invite you to watch the film with a capable sound system or headphones. You'd be missing out any other way.
