Track “Inquisition part III” by Matta, taken from the “The Lost” record released by Ad Noiseam (adn126)

They say that we all lose 21 grams at the exact moment of death. They say that it’s the weight of the human soul.

Well, it was Dr. Duncan MacDougall of Haverhill, Massachusetts who first attempted to weigh the human soul. In 1907, he placed 6 dying patients on a homemade scale, which also acted as a bed for the patients. More recently in Dan Brown’s novel, “the Lost Symbol”, there is a segment that explains how “The Institute of Noetic Science” uses noetics to weigh the human soul. After tests on terminally ill patients, it came across that immediately after death, a person’s weight dropped.

So, what would happen if they found a way to contain this invincible mass.. this soul.. Obviously the only reason to do this would be to put it in some kind of awesome robot.. yeah!

Solace from James Zanoni on Vimeo.

Created from footage I was able to shoot this past June, This short was just a chance for me to experiment in After Effects with track, stabilization, and color correction.

This short video begins a year long look into how as a Designer and Creative, I can leave a positive impact on something I find truly important.

Honey bees currently face a huge epidemic, and need any help they can get. As an amazing creature of this planet, they are responsible for pollinating around 1/3 of all the fruits and veggies we eat. Our existence and theirs is much more closely tied than many would ever know.
