THE CONDUCTOR

“The Conductor” is the first feature length film created entirely by the artist Jeremy Mann.  It is a story told through a dreamscape metaphor of the eternal artistic struggle.

THIS FILM IS FREE TO WATCH VIA YOUTUBE: https://youtu.be/6qDpxbatjAQ 

*Please read the following, it is essential to the experience*

The music chosen for this film is as important as the visuals themselves, and neither had precedence over the other, but informed and flowed around themselves together during its creation.  Without the creative brilliance and open generosity of these two gentlemen below, the film would not have been made.

The classical music chosen has been playing in my ears during almost every painting over the last several years, among many others, and their use was pursued heavily and graciously met with some wonderful souls at Naxos of America, a huge repertoire of the best classical music I’ve found, and Touch who represent some incredible talent around the world, and both without the greed which can hinder creativity.

My greatest thanks to them.

And to the actors and actresses I call as friends, who played out their parts upon the stage of my dreams without doubt or question as to what this crazy bastard was trying to do.  Without you all, I would be lost.

I created this film on my own, a horrific struggle the result of which was complete artistic freedom which I recommend everyone to try in their own ways, and I hereby give it to you for free, I hope you enjoy.

A note on its release:

My original idea after this film was completed, was to screen it at several theaters in SF, LA and New York.  After contacting a multitude of theaters, I discovered how difficult it is for individual artists to compete with the big companies’ control over most theaters, and therefor what the public is influenced to see.  And as I sulked in the basement, finally cleaning the monstrous mound of supplies, tools, chemicals and props that I had yet to put away after two dump trucks came and removed the obnoxious pile of trash leftover from a year of set building in the backyard and bedrooms… I came across each piece, each prop, each object that I had so lovingly spent time with, and had a moment of realization.  My greedy pride, which was convincing me that only films seen on theater screens were real films, was suffocating the life of my creation.  It was finished, an entire year of blood and love wrapped up in a beautiful little file on my hard drive, and it would be stillborn if I don’t just let it out the door and live.

I made this film purely from a desire and love for creating an art form which I’ve come to find more refreshing to my soul than many other forms I’m also enraptured with.  My paintings have been given movement and music with this new medium of film, and I feel the emotions created between it and the audience are closer to the voice I wish to speak with than anything else I’ve created.

So I only ask this of you:  treat her as you would an original oil painting.  Spend the time in a dark room with this film on the largest screen you have, with the best and loudest sound you can, with all of your attention fixated upon her (and a glass of wine is always a plus), as anything else would simply do her an injustice.  I hope it conjures emotions within you and inspires you to do whatever it is you desire to do, despite the rest of the world’s conventions and hindrances. 

And if you like it, just share it.

Love,

Jeremy

 

The Conductor - OFFICIAL TRAILER

The official trailer for "The Conductor" the first feature length film created entirely by artist Jeremy Mann.

A Solitary Mann
Directed and Created by Loic Zimmermann.

Jeremy Mann’s world is a place where pain, desire and lust combine to project the realest parts of the human spirit. He embodies the grit and character of the urban landscape with a tone and color quality rivaled by few. Supported by a massive global following, his approach is a combination of menacing attack, fused with bolero romanticism.

Los Angeles based French director Loic Zimmermann combines a strong cinematic aesthetic with a cinéma vérité approach to capture the visceral parts of MANN, while humanizing the experience in an effort to bring the viewer right behind the paint.

“A Solitary Mann” is a triumphant ode to a man who no doubt, will continue to leave his mark on the art world for years to come.

A short film created by Artist Jeremy Mann depicting the important, inseparable, and often overshadowed, aspects of creating his paintings. The film, presented as an art piece itself, reveals ideals connected to the thought processes involved, references hidden throughout revealing more than just a cinematic journey, a glimpse within the artistic ether.

Like paintings in person, this film is meant to be viewed alone, large, and loud.

This film could not, and would not, have been created without the music:

KAMMARHEIT
http://www.kammarheit.com/
https://kammarheit.bandcamp.com/

PHELIOS
http://www.phelios.de/
https://phelios.bandcamp.com/

And of course, the classical music, tastes of which echo down all hallways in this house, I couldn’t live without.

The connection between music and painting is inseparable for me, and the music within this film has been a current source of great inspiration while painting and creating the film itself. These two truly visionary artists and musicians have been an invaluable aid in my creation, I highly recommend following and listening to their art.

A glimpse behind the curtain into the creative process of artist Nadezda.

The thoughts, dreams, and soul of an artist is the elusive "vision" of which everyone wishes to know. There is more effort and existence in the moments, nights, months and years before a piece of art is even begun to take its physical form. This final physical form is a mere blink in the life of the art itself, a blink that lasts forever, a glimpse into the soul of the artist. There is no magical moment of discovery in watching them create the physical thing, the true wonder resides buried within, if you wish to know those sacred secrets which pulse in the artist's heart upon that strange inner stage, even a glimpse is a more worthwhile venture.
