Hello and welcome to our new site for Estrata Productions and the work of Shaun Garea. See below for information on past/present/future film, comic, writing, music, and academic projects.
At Estrata we have a focus on artistic content and a flair for doing things a little differently. We aim to challenge narrative structures and expectations whilst still keeping an eye on making work interesting and more than a little fun. Over the years this has attracted support from funding bodies, international music labels, Oscar and Palm d'Or winners, and Hugo and Eisner winners also.
We may not be big but we have heart. We punch above our weight class in traditional Kiwi fashion hence our works have played to audiences across the country and the world; in cinemas and on television, as featured exhibits in galleries, via VOD services, printed in annuals, and teamed with all of the PR that goes with that.
So welcome and stay awhile, have at look at the Kafka inspired set of Dream projects, The Legend of Gareus comic, read about some psychology research or just watch some music videos and look at the pretty pictures. - Shaun
Estrata has been working with Koolarrow Records & the band Talking Book (Billy Gould from Faith No More, Jared Blum from Gigante Sound, and Dominic Cramp from Borful Tang) & a large amount of fantastic videographers to develop this new video work to coincide with the new album release 'Talking Book II'.
The video is called: 'From the Cradle to the Grave: The Perpetual March of Time and Death'
Talking Book info can be found HERE - or just click the video to view it now!
Just released! Here is the new video for 'Into the Day' which is a track from an audio collaboration between NZ musicians Ange.Mac + Shaun Garea. This dark ambient/synth/effect heavy EP has just come out so please watch the video or give the tracks a listen. Find the tracks for purchase HERE.
Video companion to 'A Dream...' this emotions study features the fantastic music of US band Tomahawk (thanks to Ipecac Recordings), an incredible performance by accomplished actor Dwayne Cameron, was supported by Oscar and Palm d'Or winner Jane Campion, and screened in theaters in New Zealand before the Spanish Thriller Julia's Eyes.
