SUMMARY


SUMMARY


A roving philosopher guides us through the striking forests, coastlines, deserts, and cities of the world, inviting us to embrace the intense mystery of our own existence. Meet the men and women who are living testament to the power of transmutation, each sharing their extraordinary stories of empowerment, authenticity, and love. This feature documentary explores the rarely-seen intimacies of a deeply individualistic mystical experience of reality. Is direct personal encounter with divinity a real thing? What secrets are buried in nature’s deep places? Why has mainstream culture sought to eradicate the awakened human? Is normality really our friend? The answers may surprise you.

CREW


The project is a collaboration between British philosopher and esotericist Neil Kramer & American Artist and Filmmaker Niles Heckman.

Writer & NARRATOR

Neil Kramer is a British philosopher and esotericist. His work focuses principally on spirituality, mysticism, and metaphysics.

With broad experiential knowledge of interconnected philosophical, spiritual, mystical, Hermetic, and alchemical disciplines, Neil has spent time with several orders dedicated to the wisdom of the ancient world. His synthesis of spiritual wisdom, social critique, anti-authoritarianism, deep knowledge-base, inventive language, and no-nonsense approach, has helped to develop his reputation as a widely respected figure in mystical, spiritual, and alternative communities.

 

Director

Niles Heckman is a filmmaker and street photographer with a background creating visuals for high-end commercials, games cinematics, and Hollywood. He has overseen plate photography with New Line Cinema, Warner Brothers, 20th Century Fox, Marvel Studios, and is a member of three Academy Award winning teams shared between the animated feature and visual effects categories and a VES Award recipient for outstanding achievement in virtual cinematography. His directing aims to cinematically portray content often times lensed in a candid street photography style. He directed and shot the pilot episode for the independently produced documentary series Shamans of the Global Village in 2015  and Transmutation is his feature directorial debut.

 

MUSICIANS

Wes Willenbring’s songs revolve around the primary elements of guitar, piano, and synthesizer.  After being written and recorded they are disassembled, reconstructed and manipulated to create music that is both visceral and expressive. This bridging of melody and texture, of form and formlessness, acts to draw the listener into territory that is at once unknown yet intimately familiar.

 

Music has always been a huge passion for Jody Vernon. He has collaborated on an eclectic mix of musical projects over the years, and currently plays keyboards in a funk band. The majority of Jody’s creative output to date has been solo electronica, from ambient through drum and bass and industrial techno. Film scoring has long been a dream of Jody’s, and being involved with Transmutation has inspired him to dedicate more time to following that dream. 

 

Dublin based duo Jim Lawler and Ben Rawlins have been making minimalist piano music for over 15 years under the name Saso. Their recent compositions abandon formal song structure and let the music unfold naturally using silence and ambience as instruments in themselves.
