Award-winning film and TV director and producer Shelley Williams collaborates with artists, philosophers, ecologists, dancers, writers and neuroscientists to create entertaining & inspiring work for cinema, TV, exhibition & performance.
Her work in fiction and documentary seeks out the space 'in-between' to give visual form to a more balanced view of the world, one that engages both left and right hemispheres. The audience is invited to go beyond the rational mind and connect directly with the reservoir of intuition, myth, innate wisdom and spirit.
With a keen ability to tell stories that tap into universal truths, she visualizes that which often isn't seen, said or consciously understood. This passion for creating beyond the boundaries together with visual flair combine to realize work of high imagination.
She seeks to inspire and empower an audience to embrace a transformative, shamanic vision of the human and non-human aspects of the world, synthesizing the elements of matter and spirit, art and science, mind and body. She most definitely honors the gift as well as the servant. (8/14)
