Good News again! Our film „The Zolle Suite“ (Benjamin Swiczinsky directed the 2nd part) qualified for Best Animated Short Film for next years Academy Awards! (Number 84) Next step: Nomination! Thanks to the whole team for this great effort! Acme Filmworks, Inc. Du Yun • 杜韵 A Path To Oblivion Benjamin Swiczinsky LA Opera
Our final #LAOperaOnNow Digital Short of the summer from Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Du Yun • 杜韵 brings three chapters of her 2005 opera "Zolle" to the digital screen. A dead woman wanders through the shadowy space between memory and reality, tracing the lines of her identity through the land she once walked—an immigrant in death as in life. These three sequential movements from Du Yun's opera "Zolle" are brought to life by an international host of animation directors, brought together by Acme Filmworks, Inc. producer Ron Diamond, creating their own unique visual interpretations of the composer's striking musical world. Performed by mezzo-soprano Hai-Ting Chinn and the International Contemporary Ensemble, plus narrated by Du Yun herself, open your ears, let your mind roam free, and prepare to be blown away.
Tomorrow marks the final #LAOperaOnNow Digital Short premiere of the summer, and we couldn’t imagine a better operatic masterpiece than Pulitzer Prize-winner (and narrator!) Du Yun • 杜韵’s “The Zolle Suite.” Get swept up into this entrancing, compelling (and sometimes harrowing) journey of a woman confronting mortality and identity. Performed by Hai-Ting Chinn and the International Contemporary Ensemble, this three-movement piece features three distinctive animations all produced by Ron Diamond of Acme Filmworks, Inc. Be the first to see this master work at 11AM PT. We’ll see you there.
Did you know “The Zolle Suite” is a global endeavor? Each movement of this spell-binding piece features the visual talents of animators from three different countries: Steven Woloshen of Canada, Benjamin Swiczinsky of Austria and Kristian Pedersen of Norway. Be sure to mark your calendars for Friday, July 9, at 11AM PT to see how composer (and narrator) Du Yun • 杜韵 and producer Ron Diamond of Acme Filmworks, Inc. harmoniously unite these artists in our newest #LAOperaOnNow Digital Short.
✨ Digital kortfilmpremiere!✨ 9. juli slipper LA Opera tre eksperimentelle animerte kortfilmer laget med utgangspunkt i den moderne operaen Zolle av kinesisk-amerikanske Du Yun. La grand finale i trilogien er signert Kristian Pedersen og støttet av Viken Filmsenter As. En sår, lengtende, vakker og rar film – Kristian har gjort det igjen! Takk til LA Opera, Ron Diamond og Acme Filmworks, Inc. for samarbeidet, og til Kristian, fotograf Janne K. Hansen, kunstnerisk rådgiver Tommy Gulliksen, grader Fredrik Harreschou og filmkonsulent Cecilie Stranger-Thorsen.
The lines between memory and reality blur in our next (entrancing) #LAOperaOnNow Digital Short. “The Zolle Suite” brings together Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Du Yun • 杜韵 and Acme Filmworks, Inc. producer Ron Diamond in a brilliant three-movement rumination on the cycle of life. Featuring Du Yun as the narrator, mezzo-soprano Hai-Ting Chinn and the International Contemporary Ensemble, our final Digital Short of the summer premieres on Friday, July 9, at 11AM PT.
Kristian Pedersen slår seg løs! Med støtte av LA Opera og Viken Filmsenter As er han i gang med stilsikkert visuelt musikk-eksperiment. Fortsettelse følger! Takk til Ron Diamond og Acme Filmworks, Inc. for stimulerende samarbeid.
