Kyma, Power of Waves

Kyma, ondes en puissance

People sometimes fear the term “experimental,” but I think that is the best way to describe the mandate I give myself as a director: taking the viewer where he has never gone and using the medium to open up worlds.

A first collaboration between the NFB and Montréal Space for Life

In December 2015, Montréal Space for Life and the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) signed an unprecedented memorandum of agreement confirming their intention to collaborate on producing original films and using existing ones, and to exchange and share their respective expertise. The digital film Kyma, Power of Waves is the first fruit of this world-class partnership.

Advanced technology

Kyma was shot in part using a Vantrix PRO 25 camera, new Montréal video capture technology offering distortion-free high-resolution 360° video output requiring no stitching. This partnership with Vantrix lets filmmakers create more fluid and realistic projection experiences than ever, extending the boundaries of art and science.
