TEL AVIV, Israel, July 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Hip, young, successful Israeli film director and producer Barak Shavit has a dream. Rather than focus on the usual concerns of Israelis-the Israel-Palestinian conflict, or even Israel as a start-up nation, Shavit wants to expose people to new aspects of consciousness.
Shavit's upcoming film, iSyndrome, revolves around a brilliant brain researcher suffering from Depersonalization Disorder, losing his mind. His wife, a post-materialist researcher, tries everything she can to save him, even if it means reaching the end of life, and going to the heart of consciousness. Watch a teaser here .
"It's been something of a lifelong dream of mine to tell a story like those big sci-fi space movies, but doing so while trading space with consciousness, meaning, telling a story not about outer space, but inner consciousness - which is even more mysterious and vast than space and time. I think that consciousness is at the very basis of who we are, but we know and understand only the tip of the iceberg. There is so much to be explored and movies are the perfect platform," Barak says.
The project team has brought down this cost considerably using their own equipment and talented professional friends. In order to meet the remaining expenses, he has started an Indiegogo campaign to raise the final $14,000.
Shavit has worked on a number of award winning film projects such as the feature film "It's Never Too Late", the short, "F is for Falling" and for the "ABC's of Death2" by Magnolia Pictures. Some of Israel's leading talented filmmakers like Nadav Shlomo Giladi, who produced the SFX in Natalie Portman's feature film "A Tale of Love and Darkness", the graphic design in "Oppenheimer Strategies" with Richard Gere, and the animation for Disney mobile gaming application are involved with iSyndrome.
Also on board is Hollywood actor JSU Garcia whose credits include, "Nightmare on Elm Street", "We Were Soldiers", "Along Came Polly" and "Collateral Damage."
Shavit's film not only explores consciousness, a field along with mindfulness that is of growing mainstream interest, it serves as a bridge between groups of young non-mainstream artists and film professionals from Israel and the US to collaborate at a time when such cooperation is threatened by those who seek to boycott Israeli arts.
