The highly acclaimed, blockbuster-style short film THE SHAMAN premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York in 2015. After that it ran successfully at numerous film festivals around the globe, including Los Angeles, London, San Diego and the DragonCon in Atlanta. The trailer turned into a viral sensation with over 6 million views.
The dark year 2204, in a world that has seen 73 years of continuous war. Recently mankind re-discovered the arts of Shamanism. The Shaman’s school of thought believes that every person or object has a soul. During battle Shamans step over into the Netherworld to find and convert the souls of their enemies’ giant battle machines. This tactic enables a single man to overcome an invincibly seeming steel monster.
This is the story of Joshua, a Shaman, who is sent on a mission to convert the soul of a giant battle colossus. He does not yet know that the soul is prepared for his coming and that the deadly psychological soul-to-soul confrontation in the Netherworld will be on eye level.
This movie was shot during our 20 days trip to Antarctica in December 2014 to January 2015.
We started from Ushuaia in Argentina and went to Port Williams in Chile, rounded Cape Horn and crossed the Drake Passage towards the Melchior Islands in Antarctica. We spent 16 days in the Antarctic and got to experience the most amazing scenery and wildlife before we returned back to Ushuaia.
Filmed with GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition and DJI Phantom 2, edited with Final Cut Pro X.

Many in Hawaii refer to the lava as Pele, the Hawaiian goddess of fire. After our incredible experiences at the volcano it’s not hard to see why so many islanders to this day see Pele as a living breathing thing.
I was born and raised on the island but hadn’t had the chance to come face to face with Pele until we set out to create this film. I wanted to capture the beauty, mystery and danger of Kilauea. I wanted to just see the volcano doing what it does by turning the cameras away from human interaction and toward the fiery blood of the Earth.
The Fire Within is our attempt at capturing what it felt like to witness molten rock slowly burning down a dense wet rainforest, or to peer into a 600 foot wide lava lake at Kilauea’s summit crater. I’ve never been anywhere else on the planet that demanded as much respect and awareness for the natural environment around me. Peles mesmerizing beauty and unsettling sense of danger were nothing short of humbling and put so much into perspective. Kilauea really did change my life.
Huge thanks to those who supported this film along the way, especially Wes and Stefan for contributing so much time and talent to make this thing what it is. Kilauea – The Fire Within was produced out of pocket and with complete creative freedom.
