“Love from above shine here below.
Love of soul let her be whole.
Love in spirit be empty of all.
Love infinite be he adored.
Let love on earth be poured.
Let fear in her soul flee its hold.
May the Joy of love never be here untold”
“She Moon, Love Spell” 2013 Short Film
“I had a dream, the melody of life, Love”
A writer recalls an encounter with who she hopes to have a love affair. The feelings evoked lead her to remember a chapter in her childhood when she was casted a love spell. Meanwhile she writes a new story about the magic bond of five chosen girls, with a higher purpose. The girls will cast a spell, during a full moon night, to affect humanity’s heart while we dream.
“She Moon, Love Spell” a experimental short film by Sylvia Love Johnson, showcases in one of the Short Film Market theatres at the prestigious Clermont-Ferrand Film Festival. The Georges Conchon (160 seats) or the Boris Vian (324 seats) theatres are very much appreciated by the delegates who come along to discover the latest productions.
She Moon, Love Spell, was conceived as an Avant-Garde project for a course module while completing an MA in Filmmaking. Sylvia went into production without a script; only an idea, a few frames in mind, the lyrics of the She Moon Song and a message to share.
The She Moon song composed by Tim Bond, the lyrics written by Sylvia Love Johnson
