Beyond the Horizon

Exploring creative hunger through dance

AVM Visuals were very fortunate to be approached by leading photographer Charlie Clift to participate on his project “Beyond the Horizon”. Clift had heard through recommendation of our founder Chris’s past in sound recording and post production sound for film and tv and had an idea of adding foley and sound design into his film. Upon contacting Chris, their creative minds came together and shared ideas on how to further capture the viewers inner emotions to enhance what would already be seen and heard through composer SegunΒ  Akinola’s music and Demi Rox’s choreography and dance.
Chris was asked to go on set to record some ambiences before taking all the sounds he recorded back to his studio and start building up a soundscape which Clift heavily participated in developing over the coming weeks.Β  Chris also decided to take the drones to film extra drone footage and portfolio material of the location which ended up making it into the cut of the final video.
Through several back and forth weeks of changes and revamps, sound design and foley, Chris achieved what they had set out to and created the soundscape which Clift envisioned.

 

β€œBeyond the Horizon”, Charlie Clift’s latest project, is an exploration of the trials and
tribulations of the creative process and the fruit of his collaboration with composer
Segun Akinola and choreographer Demi Rox.
Rox cuts a lone figure against the austere dunes as she combines hip hop, freestyle,
and classical dance to Akinola’s cello score written for the film. She begins calm and
collected, flowing over the dunes but as the music becomes increasingly frantic, so
does her dance: grappling with self-doubt, struggling against the obstacles thrown
her way. At the end, as the soundscape expands, she is triumphant. “www.charlieclift.com”
