On December 5,2016, StandardVision launched it’s latest site-specific live-action public art video by director and photographer Tony Ung, entitled PORTALS. PORTALS represents another new, innovative and original film in the SV Presents series; an art initiative showcasing the work of creative visual artists working within the community.

PORTALS is a journey through earthly and galactic environments that challenges the notion of defined space, time, and reality. Enticing our inner voyeur by taking us down a visual rabbit hole that defies logic and spatial relationships. Maximizing the enormous, uniquely shaped corner screen display of SVLA1, Ung’s PORTALS seamlessly interweaves with the real world facade of the building and ingeniously utilizes the windows of the hotel as a subtle beginning and striking end point for the film’s narrative.

Tony Ung is a film director and photographer from Los Angeles who works in both the experimental and narrative film genres. Often inspired by the intersection of colorful characters and unique locations or unexpected situations, Ung’s narratives combine both practical and digitally generated special FX to create alchemist’s journeys through time and space.

Portals will play at the top of every hour throughout the month of December on the Marriott Courtyard screen (aka SVLA1), located at 901 W. Olympic Blvd in downtown Los Angeles.

An event to inaugurate the unveiling of the piece will take place on the patio of The Yard House restaurant from 9p.m.-Midnight on Thursday December 8th, 2016.
