In The Woods Cinematic Poem Short Film Promo Directed by Andrew David Watson 2017

“To the body and mind which have been cramped by noxious work or company, nature is medicinal and restores their tone. The tradesman, the attorney comes out of the din and craft of the street and sees the sky and the woods, and is a man again. In their eternal calm, he finds himself.”

From “Nature” by Ralph Waldo Emerson

” “IN THE WOODS” is a collaboration between designer Kai D Utility and myself. We originally set out to shoot a short look book film about escaping to the woods, only to find (after the fact) our images matched perfectly with excerpts from “Nature” by Ralph Waldo Emerson.

We decided to turn our look book film into a homage to the concept of Transcendentalism. The appreciation and need for nature is even more alive today, then it was in the 1820s. We hope this video motivates you to take that weekend trip you’ve been planning, but have yet to take.”

“If” by Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you   
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,   
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;   
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;   
    If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;   
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;   
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,   
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,   
    Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,   
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,   
    And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

Memento Mori Cinematic Poem Short Film featuring Alan Watts Directed By Sebastian Linda 2016

Excerpts from Alan Watts “Memento Mori” Lecture 

I have often puzzled and puzzled,
about what it must be like,
to go to sleep and never wake up
to be,
simply not there,
forever and ever.

But we are inclined to have in our mind,
a picture of this
of being shut up in the dark for always and always,
to be kind of buried alive in the blackness

And we think
Ooh this is it
This is the end
And so at death we withdraw
no no no, not that
Not yet
Please!

And you accepted it.
And suddenly something changed
There was a strange feeling that
everything is absolutely clear.
You suddenly see that there isn´t a grain of dust in the whole universe that´s in the wrong place.
The reason we die is to give us the opportunity to understand what live is all about.
Just think
When you opened your eyes on the world, for the first time as a child
How brilliant colors were
What a jewel the sun was.
What marvel the stars.

Memento Mori
Be mindful of death.
