About 2012: Time For Change
2012: Time For Change is a documentary feature that presents ways to transform our unsustainable society into a regenerative planetary culture. This can be achieved through a personal and global change of consciousness and the systemic implementation of ecological design. It features Sting, Ellen Page, David Lynch, Buckminster Fuller, Gilberto Gil, and Daniel Pinchbeck.
About Omid Walizadeh
Omid's music is best described as diverse and unpredictable, influenced by middle-eastern music and diverse textures. Inspired by the fertile underground Hip Hop movement at the "Goodlife Open Mic" in the early-mid 90's, Omid (aka OD) made the "Beneath the Surface" compilation, which he solely produced and features over 30 MC's, mainly from the Los Angeles underground Hip Hop scene. Since, Omid has produced many projects, including the highly acclaimed single with Freestyle Fellowship and Adlib entitled "Can You Find The Level Of Difficulty In This?" (Celestial Recordings). Omid also remixed the Beastie Boys' "Looking Down The Barrel Of A Gun" for the Beastie Boys DVD Video Anthology.
