Thierry De Vries used Kyma to do sound design for a Belgian short film entitled EX.1870-4, directed by Christophe Van Rompaey and produced by Anja Daelemans for Another Dimension of an Idea. No sync sound was recorded for this film, because everything was recorded on virtual sets and blue key backgrounds with heavy background noise. The sound track was built from scratch by the Foley Artist and Sound Editing Department. The characters didn't communicate in a traditional way; dialog happened at an intra-brain level. Voice clicks were morphed in Kyma with dolphin sounds to generate the brain-dialog sounds in this film. The flesh-like elevator floor pass-by's were treated with Kyma-doppler effects.

Discussion (Descriptions, reviews, discussion):

Released on 35mm Dolby Digital, it won the award for Best Picture at The Houston International Film Festival and Best Sound and Picture at the film festival in Huy, Belgium.

EX.1870-4 was shown in the USA at the New York Film Festival, The Montclair Short Film & Video Festival in New Jersey, and on 29 November, and on 3 December, 1999 at a film festival in Santa Fe, New Mexico

Now that EX.1870-4 is released, Thierry is already hard at work using Kyma on another film, Dead End. The film carries an aids-information message and is based around a guy playing a 3D virtual reality game with "Matrix"-like elements with the border between game and reality blurring...
