“What If”: A Cinematic Narrated Short Film In Hawaii Directed By Sebastian Doerk (2013)

“What If” is a Cinematic Narrated Short Film In Hawaii featuring Alan Watts Directed By Sebastian Doerk.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:  Sebastian Doerk

Sebastian Doerk Productions

Music Composed by:  Tony Anderson

Voice of:  Alan Watts

“I wonder, I wonder, what you would do if you had the power to dream at night any dream you wanted to dream. And you would of course be able to alter your time sense, and slip seventy-five years of subjective time into eight hours of sleep. You would I suppose start out by fulfilling all your wishes. You could design for yourself what would be the most ecstatic life.

And then after a couple of months of this sort of thing at seventy-five years a night, you’d be getting a little taste for something different, and you’d move over to an adventurous dimension, where there were certain dangers involved, and the thrill of dealing with dangers. And after you had done that for awhile, you’d think up a new wrinkle, to forget that you were dreaming, and think that is was all for real.”

Get Lost Limitations are Optional

What if you wouldn’t be scared, scared to give up the job you hate, scared to leave for a better place…
What if you could dream your whole life in one night and make changes the nights following. Would you still be the same person when you wake up? Can a simple dream change your everyday life?

Poem By:  Laurence Eaves

“The trail stretched out in my wake,
Marks the path of my trial.
Each centimetre step I take
Will add to make up miles

Where are the stars which shared the load
By lighting up the track;
The wind that used to whip the road
And press upon my back?

Though every weary tread will tire
This body, bruised and sore,
The lonely ache of my desire
Demands me to endure.

Each slow and heavy stroke reminds
Me of how far I’ve come,
From loving faces, left behind
With memories of home.

But I push past the pressure of
This struggle to survive,
And make my mind the measure of
How much I am alive.

The sun now slips down from the skies
And sleeps through the moon’s reign,
But soon, together we will rise
And start the chase again.”

Poem “Annabel Lee”  Written By:  Edgar Allan Poe

Annabel Lee

By Edgar Allan Poe 1809–1849

It was many and many a year ago,
   In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
   By the name of Annabel Lee;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
   Than to love and be loved by me.
I was a child and she was a child,
   In this kingdom by the sea,
But we loved with a love that was more than love—
   I and my Annabel Lee—
With a love that the wingèd seraphs of Heaven
   Coveted her and me.
And this was the reason that, long ago,
   In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
   My beautiful Annabel Lee;
So that her highborn kinsmen came
   And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre
   In this kingdom by the sea.
The angels, not half so happy in Heaven,
   Went envying her and me—
Yes!—that was the reason (as all men know,
   In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
   Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.
But our love it was stronger by far than the love
   Of those who were older than we—
   Of many far wiser than we—
And neither the angels in Heaven above
   Nor the demons down under the sea
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
   Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
For the moon never beams, without bringing me dreams
   Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise, but I feel the bright eyes
   Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
   Of my darling—my darling—my life and my bride,
   In her sepulchre there by the sea—
   In her tomb by the sounding sea.
.

It was filmed for a moving image brief based on Edgar Allan Poe, a poet from the 19th century. The poem recited in this film is Annabel Lee, a poem about the death of a beautiful women who was blown into the sea.

The theme for this film is Sea Obsession for DES 322, Moving Image.
The stand up paddlers come across a shipwreck which is entombed in a cave and was lost to the sea just like Annnabel Lee.

“Winter Olympics 2014”: Cinematic Poem Trailer From BBC Sport Narrated By Actor Charles Dance

The 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia from 7th-23rd February 2014.

Filmed and Produced By:  BBC Sport

Poem Read By:   Charles Dance

I am the dreadful menace.
The one whose will is done.
The haunting chill upon your neck.
I am the conundrum.

I will summon armies.
Of wind and rain and snow.
I made the black cloud overhead.
The ice, like glass below.

Not you, nor any other.
Can fathom what is nigh.
I will tell you when to jump.
And I’ll dictate how high.

The ones that came before you.
Stood strong and tall and brave.
But I stole their dreams away.
Those dreams could not be saved.

But now you stand before me.
Devoid of all dismay.
Could it be? Just maybe.
I’ll let you have your day.

“Sea Fever”: A Cinematic Poem Surf Short Film From Tim Davies (2013)

A Tim Davies Production, shot in the UK and Ireland. Winner of Best Short at 2013 London Surf Film Festival.

Directed and Filmed By:  Tim Davies

Music By:   Massive Attack – A Prayer for England

Poem “Sea Fever” By:  John Masefield

“I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking,
I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.
I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.”
