I was a kid in Maryland cornfields then tumbled around in East Tennessee before flying north to Boston for college. After that I landed in New York, where I knew I’d end up sooner or later. My roots are Korean, and American country folk. This made for a fun blend of influences growing up, and I now consider myself part gentle Madame Butterfly and part mountaineer with a dash of railroad hobo somewhere in the blood. I was a hammy little kid highly engaged in theater and theatrics.
There came to pass a marked phase of awkward teenliness (see above), which gave way to a long-ass journey of twists and turns and ups and downs that finds me here and now, relatively settled in “Weird” Quar New York — still a place where the best characters live. I’ve seen so many shades of life throughout my journey and lived many of them.. I got a lotta ‘source material’ 🙂
Behind the Scenes
In 2010, I had stage 4 throat cancer. I did an energy healing over the course of 3 days. The healing help get rid of all of my tumors. From that point on, I went into working on films about healing energy, meeting healings, and going to events.
I met Valerie Tignini who is a SAG actress. She wanted to do a documentary about healing. I wanted to do a fictional drama. Documentaries require proving healing. This is more of a belief that scientific. Val and I worked for 4 years creating an organic story.
Organic in that we would come up with a story for a scene, I would write it and then shoot and edit the scene. We then would screen the scene with an audience. Get feed back and discover the next path for the story. It was a wonderful experience. A great way to create organic story telling.
Soul Redemption organically grew into a “feel heal” film. Feel Heal Films is an innovative movie genre created by In The Flow Entertainment – where visual entertainment and energy healing coexist, which is made possible by the genuine healers that are part of the cast. The result is a collective and visual healing experience, which can be felt by all who watch.
The intent was to create entertaining story that engages the audience from a dramatic perspective while also delivering healing energy and information about how healing energy works in the body. Thus, it’s not a documentary but a fiction that has some elements of education those who don’t understand energy healing.
From beginning to end, the film is transmitting energy. Val Tignini and Rafael Benedicto Rivas energy is complimented by the score. Each of the composers from around the world used healing frequencies in their music.
Central Park is not only the location but because a “character” in the film. Shooting a low budget feature deals with astronomically location fees when the production is based in New York City.
In doing research for the film, we discovered that many believe that Central Park is on top of energy vortex. Many healing arts practitioners do use the energy in Central Park for personal and professional needs.
The combination of the Park’s energy with easy access to shooting make the location idea. We began writing all the scene in different locations in the Park. In fact, Soul Redemption offers hidden gems in the Park not often discovered by the casual visitor.
During the organic production process of Soul Redemption, we hosted healing/screening events to get audience feed back on the direction of the story. At these events, we showed about 10 mins of scenes that had been shot and edited.
At one such screening, an audience member had mention that the energy in the film has cleared a root chakra issue he had been having for several years. This was a new discovery for creator Richard Burns. Co-creator and light worker, Val Tignini, explained that the energy she was emitting capture on film while acting in scenes can be transmitted to the audience.
I think our audience will ask, “did you feel it” after watching Soul Redemption. Our intent is to give the audience energy that heals and an understanding of how energy healing works.
We intend to spend the next 3 to 6 months building awareness through screenings, live events and social media. We have build our own video server with zoom capabilities to assist in hosting virtual screenings with live Q/A sessions.
Long term, we want to reach out the healing arts communities and others in the environment to raise the level of authenticity of the work.
