A ‘New Wave’ for the 21st Century

As physicists try to uncover the base structure of matter, Yoga-Maya is working to uncover the profound psychological nature of cinema.

Historically, emerging technologies (eg. sound, color, CGI) have caused the development of many evolutionary paths in cinema to be neglected, leaving its true potential largely undiscovered.

This focus on technology – rather than movies – has left audiences uninspired and studios relying on marketing rather than content.

Cinema’s renaissance is about the magic of cinema; conceiving, producing and experiencing it. Yoga-Maya is all about this 21st century ‘New Wave’.

Audiences are waiting.

The Mastermind

Matthew J. Morreale (Founder/Director/Writer) and Ana Lucia Alves (Producer/Actor) are the hearts and minds behind Yoga-Maya’s vision for the future of cinema.

Matthew was born in Mississippi and raised in England. He spent many years living and traveling in Europe, India and Brazil, soaking up the culture, playing music and writing. Then, with the gravitational pull of a black hole, cinema devoured him. Check out his ‘Cinema and the Psyche Podcast’. As well as developing future film projects, he’s DJing in Tulum, Mexico, as Yoga Māyā.

Ana Lucia left Brazil at 18 to travel the world as a top model. Some time later, following her true calling, she studied acting and produced documentaries and short films.  She’s now running both, Ciné Tribe and the Vedic Times Organization, as well as hosting the v-podcast series, ‘Reclaim Your Mind’ and coaching with Models’ Ethics.

“Film is a disease. When it infects your bloodstream, it takes over as the number one hormone; it bosses the enzymes; directs the pineal gland; plays Iago to your psyche. As with heroin, the antidote to film is more film.” Frank Capra
