Blanes Breath Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Alex Soloviev 2017

“There are special places when you arrive there, you feel like you’re at home. I was in one. A small town in Spain, Blanes. Quiet and cozy in the off-season when there’re no packs of tourists on a big buses. This is more personal video. There is no many complicated transitions and shots, but rather attempt to convey the feeling of coziness of this place.”

“Time In Eternity” by Tom Merrill

When you were as an angel in my arms,
Had laid your bare head just below my chin,
Your length pressed up to mine, entrusting charms
My whole youth’s starward longing could not win;
With still the murmur of your love in me,
Miracle-tones of all my lifelong hope,
I wished that there might start eternity
And seal forever that sweet envelope;

And as it did, my thoughts are now for you
As every star is blotted by the sun,
And so the sun itself
Has perished too,
And with it, every dream of mine
But one.

For The Light And Darkness Cinematic Visual Poem Short Film Directed by Patryk Kizny 2017

“For The Light And Darkness is a visual story loosely inspired by the ancient Manichean idea of a primeval conflict between the spiritual world of light and material world of darkness.

“Manichaeism taught an elaborate dualistic cosmology describing the struggle between a good, spiritual world of light, and an evil, material world of darkness. Through an ongoing process that takes place in human history, light is gradually removed from the world of matter and returned to the world of light, whence it came. Its beliefs were based on local Mesopotamian gnostic and religious movements. [Wikipedia]”

In director’s perspective, all events of the world are part of the eternal cycle of changes between powers of light and darkness. The primary visual layer depicts main characters – an ethereal dancer (Light) and a mighty shaman (Darkness) as they trade the powers. The secondary layer features powerful and rich symbolic imagery to illustrate the transitions of power.”

In Flanders Fields Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Tim Mountain 2017

“In Flanders Fields” by John McCrae (1915)

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

One foot after the other.
How many steps have I taken to get here
Now to become what I am.”

“Statures of Gods is an exploration of the art of movement; either sculpted or through the expression of dance. When the statues of Paris become one with three ballet dancers, captured frozen in jumping movement, truth is found in the shared reach for beauty.

“Alone With Everybody” by Charles Bukowski

the flesh covers the bone 
and they put a mind 
in there and 
sometimes a soul, 
and the women break 
vases against the walls 
and the men drink too 
much 
and nobody finds the 
one 
but keep 
looking 
crawling in and out 
of beds. 
flesh covers 
the bone and the 
flesh searches 
for more than 
flesh. 

there’s no chance 
at all: 
we are all trapped 
by a singular 
fate. 

nobody ever finds 
the one. 

the city dumps fill 
the junkyards fill 
the madhouses fill 
the hospitals fill 
the graveyards fill 

nothing else 
fills.

Elegy Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Jared Pelletier (2017)

Narrated by: Christopher Plummer

“A short film based on the setting and gameplay of Hinterland’s exploration-survival experience, “The Long Dark”, by Hinterland Studio Inc.

To illustrate this vision for how THE LONG DARK will make the transition to live-action, Hinterland has produced a five-minute short film, Elegy, directed by Jared Pelletier, performed by Oscar-winning actor Christopher Plummer, and written by van Lierop.

“I describe Elegy as a visual poem”, says van Lierop, who also executive produced the short. “Jared’s passion for the source material is evident — he really connected with THE LONG DARK’s artistic sensibilities, and the game’s unique sense of identity within its own fiction. I think Elegy stands as an example of the level of quality and the overall tone I’d like to deliver in THE LONG DARK film.”

Excerpt from “The Waves” by Boris Pasternak

We were in Georgia. You can get this land 
If hell is multiplied by paradise, 
Bare indigence by tenderness, and if 
A hothouse serves as pedestal for ice.

And then you’ll know what subtle doses of 
Success and labor, duty, mountain air 
Make the right mixture with the earth and sky 
For man to be the way we found him there.

“A few months ago, a friend and I went to discover Morocco for a personal project. It was an amazing experience for both of us, and some of the witnessed places were breathtaking. I’m pretty sure that I’ll be back sooner or later.

So, with some of the images that we recorded, I made this little tribute to Mr. Charles Bukowski and his poem ‘The Laughing Heart’. And, of course, to my colleague Izhan, who’s being a fellow companion these last couple of years. For more adventures like this!”

“The Laughing Heart” by Charles Bukowski

your life is your life
don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.
be on the watch.
there are ways out.
there is a light somewhere.
it may not be much light but
it beats the darkness.
be on the watch.
the gods will offer you chances.
know them.
take them.
you can’t beat death but
you can beat death in life, sometimes.
and the more often you learn to do it,
the more light there will be.
your life is your life.
know it while you have it.
you are marvelous
the gods wait to delight
in you.
