Ten years ago, while going jogging by the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, in Las Palmas, Canary Islands, Sylvia had a vision. It was the vision of a movement, through this movement humanity would change the course of its destiny for ever: planet Earth would become, what once was: paradise. This movement, being of a supernatural kind, started with the calling or awakening of millions of chosen souls, women and young girls. The chosen ones would fall sleep to allowed their spirits to travel to a magic realm. From this realm the souls of millions would be forever touched, by whispering pure and simple love into the hearts of all humans, with The Love Spell. This would happen during an eternal night followed by a new day where there would only be sheer and true love towards our planet and towards each other. She Moon, Love Spell is a melodic representation of this vision, merely the gist of it. She Moon, is intended to be an extract extension of a day in Sirima’s life. Sirima is one of the main characters in the novel by Sylvia Love Johnson, “Selene Hekate, Mystic Dream”. This short film attempts to give a glimpse into the story and its message. Upon arrival back home after jogging, Sylvia made of the vision a rough draft for a screenplay. The completed screenplay/treatment for a feature film will still take several years to emerge. Before that, the vision would become a Short Story, “The Awakening of the Chosen Ones” 2005. Shortly after Sylvia would write a children’s theatre play, “Mi Amiga Selene” based on the same vision. In 2011 it became a Novel “Selene Hekate. A Mystic Dream” and then Sylvia started working in a feature film treatment for the story. In 14th February 2013 Sylvia Johnson completed the post-production period of the the Short Film “She Moon, Love Spell” produced in UK. This journey was accompanied by casting call for a feature film that attracted hundreds of professionals actor’s and actresses in Spain during the Selene Hekate Casting Call. She Moon, Love Spell, was conceived as an Avant-Garde project due to a course module while completing an MA in Filmmaking. Sylvia went into production purposefully without a script, the challenge was to make an experimental short film; she had an idea, a few frames in mind, the lyrics of the She Moon Song and a message to transmit. Talented composer, Tim Bond became part of the creative team during the She Moon, Love Spell production. The characters in the story; Sirima, Luna, Tamara, Selene and Dama are portrayed by the young talents Ellie Bindman, Isabella Speight, Masha Warning, Charlotte Toubloulic and Melissa Sanger and the dancer Sammi Foster incarnating a younger Selene.
