There is a place not accessible through downloads,
It’s instead revealed down winding country roads.
Where modernity’s false gospel and urban strife,
Are baptized by clear waters and gurgling life.

Sonnet 116 Cinematic Poem Short Film For Vogue Italia Directed by Federico Mazzarisi (2019)

“Sonnet 116 by William Shakespeare”

Let me not to the marriage of true minds 
Admit impediments. Love is not love 
Which alters when it alteration finds, 
Or bends with the remover to remove. 
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark 
That looks on tempests and is never shaken; 
It is the star to every wand’ring bark, 
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken. 
Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks 
Within his bending sickle’s compass come; 
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, 
But bears it out even to the edge of doom. 
If this be error and upon me prov’d, 
I never writ, nor no man ever lov’d.

The Light At The Start Of Everything Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Kim Geldenhuys (2019)

“I hope you travel well,
 I hope you ride the wave
 From the center.
 And the light says:
 You know the start
 But not the end.
 All our ends are different.”

“Kim Geldenhuys was approached to shoot with TBWA Hunt Lascaris for The Okavango Diamond Company. The script: ‘The Light at the Start of Everything’ is a visual poem written by Iain Thomas for The Okavango Blue, the remarkably rare and largest Deep Blue diamond that has ever gone to market. Kim was tasked with a brief to explore the stone’s origin and the magical, unspoilt land of Botswana to which it belongs.

The Light At The Start Of Everything Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Kim Geldenhuys (2019)

To reflect on the transient nature of our human lives and remind us that the light inside the diamond is the same light that resides in us. Kim and a small team headed to Botswana to find ways to film its natural beauty in a way not seen before. The shoot saw a travel to the Makgadigadi Pans and the inaccessible but unique Khubu Island and beyond. A partnership with Wicked Pixels seamlessly integrated the post production elements. An accompanying sound track is scored by Nic van Reenen of Field Audio.”

“I had the privilage of being Lead Animator on this film, at Nexus Studios. Was great to work with the whole team once again!

I animated the car section at the beginning until the guitar handover, and the final dragon sequence, and a bunch other stuff in between, and generally oversee the 2D animation. I also did the storyboard/animatic/layout process and worked out the 2d camera moves. Its always great to work with Smith and Foulkes because they like to see what the animators and designers come up with, so they give us a lot of freedom to put our own creativity into their projects.”  Bishoy Gendi

“Roll The Dice” by Charles Bukowski

roll the dice

if you’re going to try, go all the
way.
otherwise, don’t even start.

if you’re going to try, go all the
way.
this could mean losing girlfriends,
wives, relatives, jobs and
maybe your mind.

go all the way.
it could mean not eating for 3 or 4 days.
it could mean freezing on a
park bench.
it could mean jail,
it could mean derision,
mockery,
isolation.
isolation is the gift,
all the others are a test of your
endurance, of
how much you really want to
do it.
and you’ll do it
despite rejection and the worst odds
and it will be better than
anything else
you can imagine.

if you’re going to try,
go all the way.
there is no other feeling like
that.
you will be alone with the gods
and the nights will flame with
fire.

do it, do it, do it.
do it.

all the way
all the way.

you will ride life straight to
perfect laughter, its
the only good fight
there is.

“Connemara Illuminated” by Christine Valters Paintner

A poem is being scribed this morning 
across the thick brown bog and
over the gashed granite folds of mountain,
written in spires of gold descending 
from the wide bowl of sky 
across the breathing heather.

You have to pause to read it,
long enough to hear beneath the relentless 
moan of wind 
where centuries of voices have whispered
their seeking, feasting, fasting, loving.

You know your singular aloneness
and your place in a communion of stone and sea.

Even as the kestrel’s wings vibrate into the night
sending quills into the damp air,
even as the skylarks and stonechats 
attend each day’s awakening 
like eager midwives,
this empire of longing writes its script 
in fox tracks and memory.

If your life could be just a fraction of this poem
you would never need to utter another word.

“To Autumn” by John Keats

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, 
   Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun; 
Conspiring with him how to load and bless 
   With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run; 
To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees, 
   And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core; 
      To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells 
   With a sweet kernel; to set budding more, 
And still more, later flowers for the bees, 
Until they think warm days will never cease, 
      For summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells. 
Who hath not seen thee oft amid thy store? 
   Sometimes whoever seeks abroad may find 
Thee sitting careless on a granary floor, 
   Thy hair soft-lifted by the winnowing wind; 
Or on a half-reap’d furrow sound asleep, 
   Drows’d with the fume of poppies, while thy hook 
      Spares the next swath and all its twined flowers: 
And sometimes like a gleaner thou dost keep 
   Steady thy laden head across a brook; 
   Or by a cyder-press, with patient look, 
      Thou watchest the last oozings hours by hours. 
Where are the songs of spring? Ay, Where are they? 
   Think not of them, thou hast thy music too,— 
While barred clouds bloom the soft-dying day, 
   And touch the stubble-plains with rosy hue; 
Then in a wailful choir the small gnats mourn 
   Among the river sallows, borne aloft 
      Or sinking as the light wind lives or dies; 
And full-grown lambs loud bleat from hilly bourn; 
   Hedge-crickets sing; and now with treble soft 
   The red-breast whistles from a garden-croft
      And gathering swallows twitter in the skies.
