|A sci-fi short that explores the powers of mind control.
A variety of sets were created for this film. The following is a more detailed look at "Maya's Chamber". Maya's chamber serves a home base for a group of mind readers. Maya and her followers are trying to combat those in society that are capturing and experiment on other mind readers.
Shot on location in a greenhouse at the East 11th Street Public Park in NYC.
|*The idea when creating Maya's chamber was to create a serene hideout, where the thoughts and influence of the outside world could not reach her.
*The final result was a type of meditation room inspired by a Zen type rock garden.. Complete with bright, soft glowing white walls, rock altar that contained a water feature and gravel floor with methodically raked patterns.
