Voiceover for VISION OF PARADISE / VISÃO DO PARAÍSO TRAILER Directed by Leonardo Pirondi

It was great fun to play a sentient machine voice for this film. Pirondi gave me room to try some extreme solutions, and it served this mysterious film very well.

The phantom island Hy-Brazil, believed to be located in the west of Ireland, triggers this meditation on the links between the great expeditions carried out during the 15th century and VR designers setting their sites on expanding and controlling a virtual "new world". Using interviews, old maps, drawings, technological gadgets and computer simulation, Leonardo Pirondi tackles issues concerning the visible and the invisible, the role of imagination, and the Jupiterian expansion of physical frontiers.
