The film series began as an invitation into the woods where no one knew what would happen. The series then embarks on a strange excursion into the labyrinthine minds of the filmmaker and her subjects where pathways always seem to recede. The parameters of filmmaking are stretched to explore new ways of telling a story. ...IN THE WOODS, a part of The Being Experience, errs on the side of risk and penetrates what is often unspoken. The series exposes the complexities of existence and reveals the essence of the subjects.
Below the ground there is The Development.
Different people stop by. It's peculiar.

NOTE FROM ELSTER
"So much to end up here. For nearly a decade I have obsessively filmed subjects, examining existence, and exploring crevices in the psychological underground. I return, in all instances, to a compulsion to penetrate depth while playing with the boundaries of filmmaking with a brave and daring CAST. Getting lost in a complex mental state was part of the way. Instability had come into my frame many times, as did joy. The results are an unabashed look at the wilderness of getting through... and whatever else. The post-production on the feature films and the series The Being Experience, has been a deep and nutritional experience.
The filming of The Development Underground includes performance art pieces, the process of the process, musical compositions, and interactions with visitors at The Development.
I curated my art into a show that formed THE RETROSPECTIVE OF AN EXTROVERTED RECLUSE .
I also hand sculpt leather accessories which have become the J. ELSTER collection.
Most recently, I have been exhibiting and performing art at different venues in New York City and recording an album.
The Development Underground series, announcements for upcoming gallery events and world premieres of the feature films, behind-the-scenes material, and inside information will be delivered to your inbox. So sign up. We will never share your information with anyone." - Jennifer Elster
HEADVILLE is an archive blog that also serves as a place for honest discourse and the ...In the Woods story.
ITW Pathway is a website with integrated introspective pathways that can be entered at TheBeingExperience.com. A prequel to the film series, the interactive experience samples textures from the original film footage to create an experience of parallax depth, pushing the limits of the medium in unexplored directions.
