What if we could escape our daily routine for a moment ? A Step, just one, that could move us miles away from here, in a second; a flash step. A Shunpo.

Shunpo was shot in 6 days in 13 different locations in Paris plus one in Turkey at "Tuz Gölü" salt lake.
The camera used was a Canon 5D Mark III with 16-35 L, 24-70L and 70-200L lenses.
A man standing alone in a shed hitting a bath with a mallet could be seen as mad, but in the world of sound design, it's the norm. Ali Lacey is an eccentric sound design artist, and this short portrait allows us a closer look into the world of sound design.
The film portrays a desolate universe. It makes remarks on specific lives & beliefs but it's arguments are constantly contradicted by it's progressing audio and visuals. Presenting a wide variety of visuals supporting a simple concept, the film completes it's 'Blue Morning's Cycle' with its spoken poetry and it's attiring visuals.
Shot on: Canon 60D

Hand : " The terminal part of the human arm located below the forearm, used for grasping and holding and consisting of the wrist, palm, four fingers, and an opposable thumb ".
My purpose was to not cover the entire subject of hands. I think that the possibilities are way too wide. I was motsly interested on how hands inspire me.
This work could not have been possible without the help, the support and the participation of the following people.
Thanks to all of you for your patience, your time and your precious hands . Keep them Safe !
