More About Synetic Motion Pictures
Building on the success of designed-for-digital productions like The Decameron, Synetic Theater launches Synetic Motion Pictures, a new programming arm dedicated to creating art films in the Synetic style by Synetic artists (Syneticons). This exciting new endeavor is the realization of a long-held vision of Synetic Theater founders Paata and Irina Tsikurishvili to lean into their cinematic roots and expand the “Synetic” approach to motion pictures.
Synetic Motion Pictures’ inaugural film All the World’s a Stage will premiere on the company’s Synetic Streaming platform February 5, 2021. This film features long-time Syneticon Scott Brown reimaging a moment from his performance in Synetic’s 2016 production of As You Like It. The film evolves this artistry to tell the story of life from one of Shakespeare’s most famous speeches. Watch the trailer here:
