Chicago based Director Nic Yiallouris and Director of Photography Dan Frantz worked closely with Felix Buxton of Celestial Being, to ensure the band’s artistic intent was conveyed in this short film.
Nic says of the process “Felix entrusted us to go out and capture a mood, a state of celestial being, which led us to think differently about this piece. There's an unspoken commonality that binds the triptych of characters together. We watch as they're drawn to a universal harmony.”
It was important to the whole team to let the city shine through, Frantz says and adding “We shot into pockets of natural light, and found beauty in Chicago's vibrant layout. We had a blast keeping the camera loose and working around our un-scripted talent to find natural moments.”
