making up the circle of astrological signs.
Thus, Lover of the Heavens.
What is Ämizod Pictures about?
"As the founder of Ämizod Pictures, the term Lover of the Heavens was always perfect because, for me, it was metaphorical as storytelling is limitless, it's reaching for the stars, its trying to accomplish something you're not sure you can accomplish, its about seeing the unseen, it's about taking risks; and at the center of it all is the human spirit.
In short, Ämizod Pictures desires to create films that make you think, yet
constructed in a way that are still very marketable.
From the outset, it may seem like Ämizod is sci-fi driven, and though there are certainly sci-fi elements in some stories, it's palette spans across all genres.
Elements of science, time-travel, psychology, sociology, theology are all story endeavors that reach into the complexity of humanity and the universe.
Films such as: Donnie Darko, American Beauty, Vanilla Sky, Mother!, Eternal
Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, Shutter Island, The Master, Being John Malkovich,
The Tree of Life, The Fountain...these are all examples of pensive, powerful
stories that push the boundaries!"
