STELLEST GENESIS, 5min., France, Animation
Directed by Pablo Daniel Magee
Director Pablo Daniel Magee collaborates with DJ Moby to create this Animation film showing the imaginary genesis of contemporary artist Stellest’s artistic universe.
Magee worked for Pinewood Studios in the production teams of many American blockbusters, including Sherlock Holmes by Guy Ritchie, Wolfman by Joe Johnston, or Gulliver’s Travels by Rob Letterman. During those years, he shared film sets with actors Anthony Hopkins, Benicio del Toro, Hugo Weaving, Jack Black, Jude Law, Rachel McAdams, and Robert Downey Junior. This immersion in the world of cinema fuelled his passion for the field .
In 2009, Pablo Daniel Magee wrote and directed a short film titled Pass:on for Watch a Thought Productions, in which he featured eight international artistes, four painters and four musicians, who did a free improvisation, live and direct, of a fresco and an original piece of music. The painters Magee directed included his father, artist Peter Stellest. Magee also collaborated for this work with British musician John Altman, composer of the music of the films Titanic by James Cameron, James Bond: Golden Eye and No Time to Die, and Monty Python’s Life of Brian, and saxophonist for Sting, Amy Winehouse, Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix, and other musicians .
In 2011, Magee co-authored and directed the short 3D movie “Stellest Genesis” for artist Patrice Stellest . For this work he collaborated with New York DJ Moby, who composed the music for it.
In 2011, he teamed up with Canadian filmmaker Jorge Diaz de Bedoya to develop the scenario for the feature film El Supremo Manuscrito , which plunges the spectator into the corrupt world of contemporary Paraguay in search of the last manuscript of writer Augusto Roa Bastos, stolen by art traffickers .
Today, Magee is involved in many film productions around the world and also dedicates his time to dramatic writing.
