A live immersive experience, the visuals of the motion picture evoke the essence of the original symphonic soundtrack, gently encouraging the audience to draw on personal reactions and give their own meaning to the film. Great intention was put into writing the music, the visuals are merely a support for the emotion of the music. The Symphonic Film™, a new concept coined by founder Tim Kampen, follows the story of an animated matchstick who plays the main character.
The match stick is born of the sun, which ignites the first movement. He faces a catalyst, which propels him west into the second movement. Facing trials, the match stick struggles to keep his flame going until finally retreating into the third movement, heavy with grief and grasping for something more. Sinking farther into the third movement, drifting from solid ground he hears “¡Despierta! ¿Qué estás persiguiendo? (Wake up! What are you chasing?)”.
As you journey alongside the main character, challenge yourself to live through him and not just observe. Rather than analyze, feel the experience. Let your own passion REígnite through this soundtrack.
When viewing the show, note your mind to let go of analytical… There is no intention to be political. It is a mere art piece that is meant to be questioned.
A message from the founder,
Are you enjoying being in public?... like… right now. Are you enjoying this part of the event? My goal in life is to bring people together & give the resources to connect with strangers. The question is, how often in social situations are we really social? Is this social media really fueling that connection we get from being around others? Or is it distracting us from being in a real community?
Often in life, I see myself and others merely drifting through this gift of life… Life is a chance to do what we dream to do, and we can not do big dreams alone - that is where the invitation comes in, will you join the mission to REígnite _________ (fill in the blank). REígnite what eachother are capable of… It is your duty to find someone here and see if their purpose can support yours. Or maybe you are someone who does not have a purpose or passion… that is where you need to find a way to be a part of someone who needs your hands. Your brain. Your talent. Your special thumb print on their vision.
This Symphonic Film is intended to re-inspire your energy & spirit, & self towards a greater purpose - to live for (with) others. Below you will find the description and program for the Symphonic Film, as well as the phases of the project. If you feel compelled, we are looking for people with vast resources and talents to tangibly help us grow this vision. DESPIERTA! QUE ESTAS PERSIGUIENDO?
The show itself has had to REígnite itself many times. First, the debut with a full symphonic orchestra was canceled due to a 2019 ice storm. Two full tours were planned the following year, yet the flame was blown out yet again when the performing arts were shut down in 2020. With all sources of funding for a cinematographer lost, Tim Kampen bootstrapped the project to get his vision accomplished. Using an iPhone, he shot and captured footage in NYC, The Missouri Rhineland, and Oregon, only using B-roll to fill the gaps that were otherwise impossible to span. As the audience tries to imagine themselves living through the main character by yielding to the immersive performance, Tim someday hopes to intensify the experience by using VR and touring with a full orchestra.
