Ex Ponto is a music, video & projection studio led by Melbourne-based director/videographer, Ivan Masic. Ex Ponto has been exploring the insoluble intimacy between music, light and the moving image through a wide range of creative projects. These include music videos, feature films, video/sculptural installations, live performance and projection. The primary focus of our work is in creating an authentic visual vocabulary that seeks to inform, challenge and inspire, whilst enhancing our understanding & experience of conceptual ideas.
Ivan recently worked on a feature film (Westwind – Djalu’s Legacy), directed music videos for Bärra-Westwind (Arnhem Land), Primitive Calculators & Other Places and documented the Remuse Designs Offsite Runway for the 2018 Melbourne Fashion Festival. In addition, Ex Ponto has created promotional videos for the Australian Tattooists Guild, Dane Certificate’s Magic Theatre and YugoVinyl Records (Serbia).
Our projections employ an elemental approach—vibrating the surface of a plate covered with a thin film of powder or liquid (cymatics), a process that occupies a near-perpetual state of experimentation. The subsequent projections culminate into a synaesthetic inquiry and an intersection of our own musical immersion, studio production techniques and captivation with the moving image.
