CREDO: A Pilgrim by Sylvia Toy, Storyboard 1 Ⓒ 2017





CREDO began with an invitation to Joas Nebe's project, DEMOCRACY SCRABBLE (https://democracyscrabbleproject.wordpress.com/). I am psyched about the premiere later this year.

SEQUENCE 32 by Sylvia Toy © 2017





I have made so many preparatory, test and experimental videos for my project, CREATION, that a brother and sister in art have encouraged me to mash up about 75 minutes, short feature length, of CREATION clips. When my instinct finally convinced me I should try it, I realized that, as can happen to anyone, I have a box to think outside of. While I will continue shooting character and story development for CREATION, I am hoping the new 'challenge' project, SEQUENCE 32, has loosened me up. Thanks to G & W.

CREATION by Sylvia Toy Night|Character Sketch 2 © 2017





"Night" is the identity choses by The First One, who comes into existence out the void of light and immediately hates being alive. This video and others to follow are for exploring her character and developing her subtext.
CREATION is a mythology based on Mbombo, the creator god in the religion and mythology of the Kuba of Central Africa, who created the world by vomiting various parts of it. I am in the pre-production phase of CREATION, composing a live action storyboard through a process of creating and uploading pre-production worldbuilding, story and character development videos. CREATION is shot splitscreen and chromakeyed; and montaged with shots from the natural world. There is no dialogue (vocalization and singing are improvised) and the movie will be subtitled and or intertitled as necessary. The sound of the world of the story will be gathered as much as possible from the characters' movements and mixed with found sounds to enhance the ambience.
