XXXX MAGAZINE PRESENTS BEHIND THE SCENES ON THE SURREAL ISSUE COVER & THE SPELL VIDEO ART FILM
A behind the scenes look at the making of video art film The Spell as well as XXXX Magazine’s Surreal Issue Cover art. Directed by Indira Cesarine and edited by John Paul Zuviate, this 6 minute short presents the inspiration behind the visuals in these productions, as well as a behind the scenes look on set during the shoot. The images from the cover were from the photographic series Eyes Open, Eyes Closed, by Indira Cesarine, and were initially exhibited at Visionairs Gallery in Paris, France in January 2010. Inspired by early work of Surrealist artists ManRay and Jean Cocteau as well as the Manifesto of Surrealism, in the series of nude portraits she explores the innocence and serenity of dreamlike states juxtaposed with the intensity of consciousness. The Spell video art film was shot on the same day in a collaboration with video team Phantasmic TV, who came on board to co-direct the video version of the images.
