“I have never really taken the time to travel my own country. I have travelled overseas a fair bit, as I was always more interested it what lay outside my own turf. But there is so much to discover in this rugged land of variation “Australia”.

“My Country” by Dorothea Mackellar

The love of field and coppice
Of green and shaded lanes,
Of ordered woods and gardens
Is running in your veins.
Strong love of grey-blue distance,
Brown streams and soft, dim skies
I know, but cannot share it,
My love is otherwise.

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror
The wide brown land for me!

The stark white ring-barked forests,
All tragic to the moon,
The sapphire-misted mountains,
The hot gold hush of noon,
Green tangle of the brushes
Where lithe lianas coil,
And orchids deck the tree-tops,
And ferns the warm dark soil.

Core of my heart, my country!
Her pitiless blue sky,
When, sick at heart, around us
We see the cattle die
But then the grey clouds gather,
And we can bless again
The drumming of an army,
The steady soaking rain.

Core of my heart, my country!
Land of the rainbow gold,
For flood and fire and famine
She pays us back threefold.
Over the thirsty paddocks,
Watch, after many days,
The filmy veil of greenness
That thickens as we gaze …

An opal-hearted country,
A wilful, lavish land
All you who have not loved her,
You will not understand
though Earth holds many splendours,
Wherever I may die,
I know to what brown country
My homing thoughts will fly.

Spirit of Solitude Cinematic Visual Poem Short Film Directed by Danny Christensen 2017

Excerpts from “Alastor; or, The Spirit of Solitude”
by Percy Bysshe Shelley
Mother of this unfathomable world!
Favour my solemn song, for I have loved
Thee ever, and thee only; I have watched
Thy shadow, and the darkness of thy steps,
And my heart ever gazes on the depth
Of thy deep mysteries. I have made my bed
In charnels and on coffins, where black death
Keeps record of the trophies won from thee,
Hoping to still these obstinate questionings
Of thee and thine, by forcing some lone ghost
Thy messenger, to render up the tale
Of what we are. In lone and silent hours,
When night makes a weird sound of its own stillness,
Like an inspired and desperate alchymist
Staking his very life on some dark hope,
Have I mixed awful talk and asking looks
With my most innocent love, until strange tears
Uniting with those breathless kisses, made
Such magic as compels the charmèd night
To render up thy charge:…and, though ne’er yet
Thou hast unveiled thy inmost sanctuary,
Enough from incommunicable dream,
And twilight phantasms, and deep noon-day thought,
Has shone within me, that serenely now
And moveless, as a long-forgotten lyre
Suspended in the solitary dome
Of some mysterious and deserted fane,
I wait thy breath, Great Parent, that my strain
May modulate with murmurs of the air,
And motions of the forests and the sea,
And voice of living beings, and woven hymns
Of night and day, and the deep heart of man.

“Romance Sonámbulo” by Federico García Lorca (Excerpt)

Green, how I want you green,
green wind, green branches.
The ship out on the sea
and the horse on the mountain.
With the shadow around her waist
she dreams on her balcony,
green flesh, green hair,
with eyes of cold silver.
Green, how I want you green.
Under the gypsy moon,
the things are watching her
and she cannot see them.
 
Green, how I want you green.
Big hoarfrost stars
come with the fish of shadow
that opens the road of dawn.
The fig tree rubs its wind
with the sandpaper of its branches,
and the woods, the cunning cat,
bristles its brittle fibers.
But who will come? And from where?
She is still on her balcony,
green wind, green hair,
dreaming in the bitter sea.

“Pulse”: A Cinematic Visual Poem Time-Lapse Short Film Of Storms Directed By Mike Olbinski (2017)

“For quite a few years now I’ve been wanting to do something different with my time-lapse films. I love color. Storms are full of color. The blues, the greens, the warm oranges and reds at sunset. The colors are sometimes what make a simple storm into something extra special.

But black and white speaks to my soul. I love it. There is something when you remove the color that lets you truly see the textures, movement and emotion of a storm.

pulse-cinematic-visual-poem-time-lapse-short-film-directed-by-mike-olbinski-2017

The film is made up of some of my favorite clips from the past few years. A mix of the monsoon and supercell plains chasing. I’m so inspired by the songs I choose for these videos. Kerry Muzzey, Tony Anderson. Their songs are so powerful and moving and the stories they tell themselves are amazing. I went with clips that felt right with each beat of the song and while I usually try to tell a story with these films, I mostly decided to let the music be that here.”

“Iceland is said to be the Mekas landscape for photographers. It is considered as the country of fascinating contrasts. Broadly known as “The Land of Fire and Ice”, it is home to both a portion of the biggest ice sheets in Europe, and probably the most active volcanoes on the planet.

Iceland is the place where there is light and dimness, where long summer days with almost 24-hours of daylight are counterbalanced by short winter days.
Icelandic scenenery still remains for all intents and purposes untouched by human progress.

” ‘My Child is Dreaming’: The idyllic world of children against adults’ dreamlike visions.

my-child-is-dreaming-cinematic-visual-poem-animated-short-film-directed-by-pask-damico-2016

When my daughter was born I bought my first diary. In the beginning I was just taking notes of her progress, reactions and likes. Then I began writing about my dreams as well. After two years, I’ve collected all the most beautiful bits to create a video.From such duality, a project called “My child is dreaming” was born.

my-child-is-dreaming-cinematic-visual-poem-animated-short-film-directed-by-pask-damico-2016

It is an introspective journey full of metaphors and paradoxes that put in contrast the idyllic and enchanted world of children with adults’ dreamlike visions, sometimes a bit pessimistic and obsessive.”
