“By dint of searching, sometimes you’ll finally find… what you were not after.”

Philppe Lejeune

“Since past years, I often dreamt of shooting time lapses. This night again, I was on top of a slate metallic roof lit by the moon. Viewpoint was awesome, opening on the seaside with a red lighthouse sweeping the mist. I was licking the salt on my lips. 
But in those dreams, i’m always late setting up my camera or i just forgot to charge my battery missing the occasion to capture this ephemeral moment.

Positive side of it is that during those dreams my brain has created fantastic images, unbelievable landscapes, volcanoes, and luxuriant forests. Some places that will never exist but that i’ll never forget. However i open my eyes and i still go and look for those places.

I’m aware that we have to live things and not look at them through the lens of a camera but harvest time is an incredible moment.

Maybe we’ll meet one night on a slate metallic roof messed around by a pale moonlight.”

“Cinematic short film “Never Forgotten” commemorates the 100th anniversary of the First World War, and the young lives which were sacrificed.

Director Jamie Childs (Vera, Lucky Man) and Gareth Brannan (Director & VFX Supervisor at The Mill) tell the story of one ‘War Boy’s hopes and sorrows, on his last journey through no mans land, disappearing into the horizon alongside his brothers in arms.

The A. E. Housman poem “Soldier From The Wars Returning” is set to a moving cinematic score composed by Tom Player (Trailer music composer for The Hobbit, Game of Thrones) and our fallen gather in chorus to whistle the traditional WWI song, “Keep The Home Fires Burning”. The recording features the “Molitor Stradivarius” c.1697 played by Johnathan Hill.

Today more than ever we feel its important for people to stop and remember the huge sacrifices made during WWI, one hundred years ago. This respectful and thought provoking tribute reminds us how much we owe for the freedoms we enjoy today.”

“Soldiers From The Wars Returning” by A.E. Housman (1922)

Soldier from the wars returning,
Spoiler of the taken town,
Here is ease that asks not earning;
Turn you in and sit you down.

Peace is come and wars are over,
Welcome you and welcome all,
While the charger crops the clover
And his bridle hangs in stall.

Now no more of winters biting,
Filth in trench from tall to spring,
Summers full of sweat and fighting
For the Kesar or the King.

Rest you, charger, rust you, bridle;
Kings and kesars, keep your pay;
Soldier, sit you down and idle
At the inn of night for aye.

Inuit Poem

I think over again my small adventures, my fears
Those small ones that seemed so big.
For all the vital things I had to get and to reach.
And yet there is only one great thing,
The only thing,
To live to see the great day that dawns
And the light that fills the world.

“Tokyo Aglow”: A Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film Directed By Justin Tierney (2016)

“Tokyo Aglow” is a Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film (At The CONFLUX Part Two) In Japan Directed by Justin Tierney.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:  Justin Tierney

Original Music by: Justin Tierney, The Deviant Septet (Karen Kim—violin, Doug Balliett—bass, Mike Gurfield—trumpet, Matthew Melore—trombone, Jared Soldiviero—percussion)

Tokyo Aglow Cinematic Time Lapse Short Film Directed by Justin Tierney in 2016

“Tokyo Aglow tours the Japanese capital by road and rail. Whereas Aerial Arterial (the first installment) explores the edifices of the city from elevated perches, Tokyo Aglow captures the city from the blacktop. The automated Yurikamome flows through Odaiba and arrives downtown. A taxi whips to converging clusters of crowds in Shibuya. Scores surge, stream and swarm, tangle and scramble. Patterns of people, probabilities and periodicities, play. Weaving and knotting, the masses rhythmically engage with the machinery of modern life.

Koto inspired chords underpin the music of the piano. Trombone, trumpet and violin map to the patterns recurrent and emergent. Crosswalk chimes, chirps and cuckoos echo into the night.

Tokyo Aglow Cinematic Time Lapse Short Film in Japan Directed by Justin Tierney 2016

“Tokyo Aglow” is the second of five installments of At The CONFLUX, a short film exploring the rhythm of urban Japan and its people.”
