The Beauty of Being with music, words, and images.

WisdomFilms, founded and created by Gary Malkiin, is a new genre in contemplative, life-enhancing media that offer a refreshing way to reduce stress and restore balance to our mind, heart, and soul. The short films can help to create sacred space within and without, providing personal sanctuaries of profound beauty and peace through state-of-the-art nature photography.

Michael Stillwater is a songwriter and healing music artist. His pioneering work providing intuitive songs facing end-of-life issues directly led to the co-creation of the ground-breaking resource Graceful Passages: A Companion for Living and Dying, that invites us to listen to the depths of our being, in sickness or health. This is a true liturgy of soul, a blessing for the caregivers, companions and family of those in transition. The beauty of music, word and spirit brings us to the world of Grace.

Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost.

1 Giant Leap is a collaborative dvd project for the 21st century, which fuses music, words, sounds, rhythms and images from over 25 locations in 20 countries around the globe to celebrate diversity of musicians, story-tellers, authors, filmmakers, artists, entrepreneurs, artists, and thinkers from many different cultures.

1 Giant Leap is a title, a philosophy, a leap of faith that sprung from the minds of visionary UK musicians/visual artists Jamie Catto (Faithless) and Duncan Bridgeman. It is the embodiment of the unity in human diversity and a cross-cultural exploration of universal truth that is a global journey unto itself.

One World Music.

One Giant Leap have created a unique music, TV and film project. What About Me? is the culmination of 4 years work visiting 50 global locations collecting wisdom and musical jewels. It’s an inspiring and alarming look at our collective insanity: how we are ego-driven, needy in relationships, insatiable in desire, addicted to status, wounded by childhood and unable to stop thinking, but how we still manage to be inspired and creative.

The backbone of the project is the music that One Giant Leap make. They start with pre-composed backing tracks in a laptop studio. The music grows as each layer is added, seamlessly mixing international stars like Alanis Morissette, KD Lang and Michael Franti, with Bedouin Musicians, Chinese rappers, Gabonese Pygmies, Tuvan throat singers, Egyptian folk musicians, Japanese taiko drummers. In addition, they manage to capture a unique take on the collective human condition, helped along by contributions from, among others, Noam Chomsky, Eckhart Tolle, Stephen Fry, Will Young, Maxi Jazz, Tim Robbins, Billy Connolly and Michael Stipe.

What is considered ‘socially relevant’ in society? How and why things happen in the world? What can we do to create a much more socially sustainable society?

Education for a Sustainable Future produced by New Future Media presents information on how today’s practices in schools are socially unsustainable. The documentary film critically analyses what is considered socially relevant in a new education system which brings out the most potential in all of humanity whilst also detailing specific educational methods from a wide range of sources on how to nurture social skills, critical thinking techniques and a larger variety of important practices to positively reinforce from our earliest years onwards. It must be recognized that a sustainable education is one of the most critical components of any advanced society.
