The Making a Pangaea - a short film that documents the creation of the piece from concept to completion. Shooting took place over two years, as I was quite deliberate about documenting the build as it happened. Thank you to all who helped in filming this as well as my brother, Benjamin Pawlak, who composed, mixed, and cut the soundtrack to this at Juilliard from January to March, 2020.
This is also the first proper video the studio has ever produced, so it’s far from perfect. But movie making/videography/story telling is something I’ve always wanted to explore in-depth. So consider this my first venture.
This also means that Livesay Ether is now on YouTube! I can’t promise too many videos (maybe 3 or so every year), but I’d certainly appreciate you all subscribing. I’ll be making cinematic shorts detailing my projects, as well as longer voice-over cuts detailing projects post completion. I hope to bring all of my projects to life in video format if possible.
