 “A non-linear cinematic meditation with the spirit of Samsara/Baraka, and a narrative that breaks opens your heart and frees your mind — this is multi-sensory storytelling at its finest. The film’s transmedia approach makes it simultaneously unique/timeless, and truly allows you “see with your heart what was once invisible.” – Jennifer Sodini via Collective Evolution

“Ultimately, “Time is Art” is a timely take on the human experience. Whether you believe that it is time for a shift in our collective consciousness or not, it will nevertheless have you questioning the meaning of your time, reality and all that you perceive. After all, isn’t questioning existence and searching for meaning what the human condition is all about?” (4 out of 5 Stars) – Avenoir Mag

“Our greatest hope for emerging from these turbulent times seems to be a combination of imagination, collaboration, and technology fused with spiritual purpose. The film Time is Art, Synchronicity and the Collective Dream is a great example of this.” – Jacob Devenay via Uplift Connect

“This film will do for synchronicity what “What the Bleep Do We Know?” did for the law of attraction.” – Rob MacGregor, author of “The Synchronicity Highway”

“A compelling and beautiful package, stunning visuals and engaging soundtrack.”- Brent Marchant / VividLife.me

“In moving away from a materialistic way of living to one that’s inherently more focused on expressing our innate creativity, we’re witnessing a significant paradigm shift in which the prevailing thinking is changing from the notion that “time is money” to, as the film’s title suggests, “Time is Art.” – New Consciousness Review, page 36

“[The Film] discusses the failure of our current calendar and how shifting our perception of time can create new possibilities and awaken the divine spark within us all. Works by Manly P. Hall, Carl Jung, and Jose Arguelles are explored, marking an important point in the writer’s journey.” -Jeremy D. Johnson

“Time is Art- What a great movie! The great author and visionary Jose Arguelles would be so pleased and proud. That this group of talented people got so completely what he was trying to tell the world when he spoke at The United Nations. We are all enslaved by our watches and the Gregorian Calendar. The Mayan’s knew better. Working with their calendar breaks you out of time as money and work. This wonderful movie talks of how we move and live differently when we step out of time and into creative life and spirituality. Time and life can truly be art and if we accept that everything changes.”
– By Michael Peter Langevin author of Secrets of the Amazon Shamans

“Realizations about our inherent connectedness, our evolving mindset, our vastly underrated capabilities and the value of synchronicities become clear, all helping us to frame a new world – and a new future – for ourselves.” –Smart Women’s Empowerment

Dynamic Holistic Duo Present Exclusive Australian Premiere

19/01/2016

One woman’s quest to find out about her own personal death experience opened a doorway into the real meaning behind life.

Melbourne based holistic partnership has secured the rights to screen an official Australian Premiere, ‘Time is Art’. The launch for this inspirational independent film was a sell out in New York.

Widespread international interest for this project has encouraged the Eastern Suburbs duo to present this evocative documentary film to enthusiastic Australians.

Multi-published author and spiritualist, Anthony Kilner of Soul Symmetry International believes there is a growing demand from Australian audiences for films that combine imagination, spiritual purpose and inspiration.

“There has been overwhelming interest from the public about this film. Presenting it as an Australian first in Melbourne is very exciting.” He said.

Motivated holistic experts Anthony Kilner and ShirleySienna Coventry will premiere the film titled Time is Art – Synchronicity and the Collective Dream on February 12th.

Chris Mackey, Psychologist and author of ‘Synchronicity’ will be doing a talk based on his own experiences with synchronicity at premiere.

This beautifully filmed documentary explores many of the theories of acclaimed and visionary author, José Argüelles’. It explores his studies in ancient indigenous wisdom and the idea that modern humanity is immersed in an erroneous and artificial perception of time that deviates from the natural order of the universe.

Filmmakers Katy Walker, Joel Mejia and Maia Monasterious believe that for those paying attention, we are living in extraordinary times.

Katy, went on to say, “Independent voices have risen to educate the people about what is really going on. Time Is Art was born from the combination of necessity and opportunity.”

ShirleySienna Coventry believes that Australian audiences are hungry for films that explore important ideas that create a more balanced world.

“Soul Symmetry International is passionate about filling this void.” She said.

The journey of a writer, compelled to make sense of the mysterious and powerful energy she felt at her aunt’s deathbed is followed. Considering herself a skeptic, a series of strange coincidences leads her on an exploration of synchronicity.

The premise that we have become disconnected from the natural rhythms of the earth by focusing only on money, consumerism and exploitation is explored.

Jacob Devaney of Uplift.com said, “Science continues to validate the power of art to effect consciousness. This film asks us to consider what life would look like if it was valued through the lens of art instead of time or money.”

The film received Documentary Feature Official Selection for the Blow-Up Chicago International Arthouse Film Festival 2015.

The premiere will be held on February 12th, 2016 at 7pm at Karralyka Centre Theatre, Mines Road, Ringwood, Victoria.

‘TIME IS ART’ PREMIERE SYNCS INTO THEATERS ON 11/11/2015!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / OCT. 2015
Brooklyn, NY — The feature documentary film, ‘Time is Art’, prepares for multi-city premiere and release in three languages on 11/11/2015. Premieres will take place in select cities, and available for On-Demand. The feature documentary film tells a personal story of creative and spiritual awakening of writer, Jennifer Palmer. The metaphysical journey is inspired by the juxtaposition of natural and urban settings From California to New York, tracking the artist’s search for meaning in a seemingly meaningless world.

Presented as a cinematic meditation, this experimental approach allows the audience to experience reality as Jennifer begins to see it – one that is less concerned with linear storytelling, and more open to the cyclical patterns of nature, the hidden meanings of symbols, and the dreamlike overlapping of people, places, and moments. ‘Time is Art’ explores urban street art in San Francisco’s Mission District as well as murals by Brooklyn artists Magda Love, WERC and Chris Soria. The film also features conversations with prolific researcher and author Graham Hancock, biologist Rupert Sheldrake as well as Carl Jung historian, Richard Tarnas, mystic and dream walker Toko-pa Turner, along with many other scientists, artists and activists.

The title, ‘Time is Art’, coined by the visionary author and artist, José Argüelles, is a twist on the catch phrase “time is money”. In the world of the film, “time” is unyoked from the relentless pursuit of material and capital gain and the audience is given an alternative framework: ‘What if we lived in a world where time is linked with creative potential and our lives became our masterpieces?’

The film is produced by Things are Changing Productions and directed by co-creative team Katy Walker, Joel Mejia and Maia Monasterios.

Theater Premiere in select cities and On-Demand: 11/11/2015

New York City, NY – 8:30pm, AMC Loews Kips Bay 15 (+ afterparty)

Time is Art, an upcoming film and transmedia project, explores the role of visionary art, street art and activism

“Even though many worthwhile films in this genre have been released in recent years, “Time is Art” could well prove to be one of the most important offerings in this vein.” – Brent Marchant, pre-release review via Vivid Life

Brooklyn, NY—‘Time is Art’, a narrative documentary film-in-progress is preparing for worldwide release in three languages on 11/11/2015. The film tells a personal story of creative and spiritual awakening.  Writer Jennifer Palmer’s metaphysical journey through inspiring urban and natural settings in California and New York tracks the artist’s search for meaning in a seemingly meaningless world.

After quitting her corporate 9-5 job Jennifer finds herself searching for inspiration in a money-driven society that more often that not shuns creativity. Presented as a cinematic meditation along the lines of Waking Life and Samsara, the film takes an experimental approach that allows the audience to experience reality as Jennifer begins to see it – one less concerned with linear storytelling, and more open to the cyclical patterns of nature, the hidden meanings of symbols, and the dreamlike overlapping of people, places, and moments.

Large scale public street art pieces in San Francisco’s Mission District as well as murals by Brooklyn artists Magda Love, WERC and Chris Soria are featured in the film. Graffiti art becomes a gateway to shifting Jennifer’s world view from materialism to one more interdependent and in harmony with the creative rhythms of her universe. Inspired by the profound messages she receives from their artwork, she is encouraged to look deeper into the meaning of life.

In the film, activist, Chris Soria shares a story about the process of creating massive mandala murals along with large keys on the back of the Brooklyn detention center. “To have keys placed on a wall on a jail facility, there’s obviously a lot of connotations to that, because it’s about access. It’s about the doors that are locked to protect something of value or locked to keep people out and perpetuate social injustices.” he says.

Jennifer’s poetry is also featured intermixed with compelling conversations with prolific researcher and author Graham Hancock, and biologist Rupert Sheldrake who both have now infamous TED talks that were censored by the organization, as well as Carl Jung historian, Richard Tarnas, mystic and dream walker Toko-pa Turner and many other scientists, artists and activists.

The title, ‘Time is Art’, coined by the visionary author and artist, José Argüelles, whose work is a major inspiration for the film, is a twist on the catch phrase “time is money”. In the world of the film, “time” is unyoked from the relentless pursuit of material and capital gain and the audience is given an alternative framework: ‘What if we lived in a world where time is linked with creative potential and our lives became our masterpieces?’

In a recent article, Aaron Kase of Reset.me says, “ultimately, the film is about how to shift from being caught up in an ego and success-driven society into a state of seeking peace and community anywhere we go.”

The original film soundtrack also features trip-hop artists East Forest and Dream Circle (the filmmakers band), psychedelic space rock band, It’s Not Night It’s Space, folk artists Diana Zinni and Bachan Kaur and soundscape and house music artists, PJOE and Real Eyes. In support of the film contributors have been selecting the “deluxe conscious music package” which includes 300 minutes of conscious and uplifting original music including the original film soundtrack.

The film is produced by Things are Changing Productions and directed by co-creative team Katy Walker, Joel Mejia and Maia Monasterios. The filmmakers recently launched a 2015 teaser/trailer and are currently running an Indiegogo campaign that ends August 1st to raise remaining post-production funds. The trailer, pitch video, and additional information about the transmedia production are available on the Indiegogo site, as well as pre-orders of the film, soundtrack and ‘Time is Art’ book which includes more visionary art and conversations that were cut from the film.

‘Time is Art’ film about Synchronicity and Rise of Global Collective Consciousness Nears Completion with Final Push for Finishing Funds

Brooklyn, NY—‘Time is Art’, a documentary film-in-progress that explores the mysterious psychic phenomenon called ‘synchronicity’ and its relationship to larger universal phenomena of the collective unconscious and metaphysics, will launch an Indiegogo crowd-funding campaign on June 3rd to raise $25,000 to bring the film to completion for a worldwide release in three languages on 11/11/2015. The film is produced and directed by husband and wife team Joél Mejia and Katy Walker of Things are Changing Productions.

The film charts the metaphysical experiences of writer Jennifer Palmer, as she seeks explanations for why she suddenly recognizes signs and symbols in street art murals in New York City and San Francisco— Her journey leads her to inquire with some of the biggest names in consciousness studies including Graham Hancock, Rupert Sheldrake, Richard Tarnas, and Alex and Allyson Grey, and mystics, like Toko-pa Turner. All these leading thinkers are featured in the film.

The filmmaker’s aims for this film go beyond documenting the awakening of an artist. Embedded within the narrative is an implicit call to action. “We want to show people an alternative to the current system,” says producer Katy Walker.  “We want people to come away from seeing ‘Time is Art’ and think, ‘Wow, I see an alternative to the materialistic and exploitative money-driven society we are all expected to live in. There are other ways of understanding the universe.’”

Adds director Joel Mejia, “We want to contribute to the awakening in global consciousness that we are witnessing right now. We want to contribute to the increasing number of conversations about our understanding of time, space and interconnectedness that are resonating with so many people right now.”

The title, ‘Time is Art’, coined by the visionary author, José Argüelles, whose work is a major inspiration for the film, is a twist on the catch phrase “time is money”. In the world of the film, “time” is unyoked from the relentless pursuit of material and capital gain and the audience is given an alternative framework: ‘What if we lived in a world where time is linked with creative potential and art?’—hence the film’s title, “Time is Art”.

Katy Walker says, “More and more people are looking outside of the narratives that society gives us about how to live their lives. There is a dearth of media that explores these counter-narratives, and that is the focus of all our work, including ‘Time is Art’.”

The film’s Indiegogo campaign will run from June 3rd to July 14th. The trailer, pitch video, and additional information about the production are available on the Indiegogo site, as well as perks like a special dinner with the filmmakers and passes to the premiere in NYC as thanks for contributing to the Indiegogo campaign.

Time is Art: A Heart Opening, Cinematic Initiation Into a Worldwide Transformation

Our award winning filmmaking team and official media sponsor of the Synchronicity Symposium: Matter and Psyche is thrilled to introduce our inspired feature documentary film, Time is Art: Synchronicity and the Collective Dream. This work in progress set to be released in 2015 is a cinematic meditation that explores synchronicity as a portal to a new reality, weaving together a New York City writer’s journey with fascinating conversations featuring prolific visionaries and scholars such as Graham Hancock, Richard Tarnas, Daniel Pinchbeck, Alex Grey, Amy Lansky & many other artists and activists.

jp-mission

Filmmakers, Joel, Katy, Maia of Things Are Changing Productions and narrator and writer, Jennifer Palmer, have been hailed by Reality Sandwich as having the “energy, intelligence and enthusiasm that is simply wonderful” and have encouraged others to “support this quality dream team as they catalyze communities and culture to engage with the synchronicity phenomenon.” The team recently completed a successful film crowdfunding campaign which also helped to raise awareness and build their audience. The co-creators have continuously been committed to walking the labyrinth of pure synchronicity, a path that has brought them together and guided their every step. They are dedicated to bringing forth a transmission that is both bridge building and imagination healing as they seek to make a positive difference through the power of media.

We are grateful that our transmedia project is already at the early stages receiving so much praise and support.  We think it has a lot to do with how relatable the story is to so many people all over the world having experiences of synchronicity and awakening to there being a much bigger vision of universal understanding and call to creating more harmony in according to mainstream media, a fearful and chaotic world threatened by terrorism.

Our film follows Jennifer’s journey, a writer and skeptic who changes her tune after experiencing mysterious, possibly supernatural events that compel her to follow recurring symbols and uncanny instances of synchronicity.  Similar to films such as Waking Life, Samsara and Occupy Love; this is a dream-like journey through a beautiful tapestry of mystical inquiry, weaving science & magic, community activism and street art with experiences of collective consciousness. Throughout her serendipitous journey, Jennifer meets with scholars, artists, activists, and ayahuasceros; in an attempt to understand her initiation into a new reality, in which everyone and everything appears to be “in sync” connected by a larger purpose. This film captures the collective zeitgeist in which people all around the world are rejecting the linear and restrictive capitalistic structures of “Time is Money” and transforming their lives into the more holistic, interdependent, spiral dynamic of “Time is Art,” a state in which we are free to access the joy of consciously co-creating the now.  Jennifer’s journey is a microcosm of all of our individual & collective archetypal journeys of awakening where we learn to see with our heart what was once invisible – how interdependently connected to each other we really are.

We are proud to be the official documentary filmmakers and media sponsors of the monumental Synchronicity Symposium: Matter & Psyche and are honored to be an interactive part of this groundbreaking event through documenting all the speakers and workshops as well as filming for our ongoing web series “Sync Stories” – personal experiences with Synchronicity.

We invite the audience & all the symposium attendees to join the mind and heart-expanding journey of their own experience with synchronicity, to question the nature of reality and awaken to their own personal role in this bigger collective convergence in the process.
