Synctuition Makes it to Hollywood

What does it take to make it to Hollywood? Surely dedication, persistence, and a positive mindset! Today, we made our dreams come true as Synctuition is on track to creating the most ambitious movie on mental health. Together with Hollywood studio Aldamisa Entertainment, we seek to bring a transformational experience like no other to the big screen. 

“If you can dream it, you can do it”, said Walt Disney. The Synctuition team is working towards achieving our dream of creating the most meaningful mental health movie shot within the last decade. For Synctuition’s co-founder, Allan Eesmaa, this is another crucial step in the long journey towards success. “For years we’ve created dreamscapes through sounds that stimulated the mind to create a visual image within people’s imagination, and now we want to take the next step by bringing the same immersive experience and apply it in movie format.”

Aldamisa Entertainment, which has an impressive trajectory in the film industry, will oversee the movie’s production. Its co-chairman, Sergei Bespalov, who has worked with renowned actors like Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Jackie Chan, believes the project will make a positive impact globally. “In the past year and a half, the world has come to a halt. The true effects of the pandemic on mental health around the world are immeasurable. This is why it’s so important that the conversation around mental health will come in a film format which is easy to digest to a very large audience.” 

The first movie recorded with 3D binaural sound

As we love surprises, we won’t spoil the plot. But here’s a tiny preview: our movie will be recorded with the same 3D binaural technology we use to craft our beloved sound journeys. And that’s not all! About 90% of the project will be shot in Estonia, a country known for its stunning countryside and for being the main shooting location of Christopher Nolan’s Tenet. With Synctuition hitting the big screen, you can expect a one-of-a-kind audiovisual experience, designed to promote optimal mental health. 

And why did we choose to focus on mental health? Because it plays a crucial role in our lives, especially during challenging times such as the ones we are living in. After all, mental health is how we feel, think, and act. It influences our relationships, physical health, professional careers, and our capacity to contribute to our communities. In summary, mental health is an integral part of a healthy, positive, and fulfilling life. 

And as mental health is something everyone should have access to, Synctuition’s movie will be totally free to watch. We hope that our project can become an educational tool for everyone, especially young people who might struggle with their well-being. The film will be released in 2022.
