Excerpts from “True Love” by Robert Penn Warren

In silence the heart raves. It utters words
Meaningless, that never had
A meaning. I was ten, skinny, red-headed,

Freckled. In a big black Buick,
Driven by a big grown boy, with a necktie, she sat
In front of the drugstore, sipping something

Through a straw. There is nothing like
Beauty. It stops your heart. It
Thickens your blood. It stops your breath…

Excerpts from “Song” by Allen Ginsberg

The weight of the world
is love.
Under the burden
of solitude,
under the burden
of dissatisfaction

the weight,
the weight we carry
is love.

Who can deny?
In dreams
it touches
the body,
in thought
constructs
a miracle,
in imagination
anguishes
till born
in human–
looks out of the heart
burning with purity–
for the burden of life
is love,

I Like For You To Be Still Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed By Camille Marotte 2017

“I Like For You To Be Still” by Pablo Neruda

I like for you to be still
It is as though you are absent
And you hear me from far away
And my voice does not touch you
It seems as though your eyes had flown away
And it seems that a kiss had sealed your mouth
As all things are filled with my soul
You emerge from the things
Filled with my soul
You are like my soul
A butterfly of dream
And you are like the word: Melancholy

I like for you to be still
And you seem far away
It sounds as though you are lamenting
A butterfly cooing like a dove
And you hear me from far away
And my voice does not reach you
Let me come to be still in your silence
And let me talk to you with your silence
That is bright as a lamp
Simple, as a ring
You are like the night
With its stillness and constellations
Your silence is that of a star
As remote and candid

I like for you to be still
It is as though you are absent
Distant and full of sorrow
So you would’ve died
One word then, One smile is enough
And I’m happy;
Happy that it’s not true.

“In a world filled with distractions, there’s an art to being present. More than ever we have a million different places outside of ourself to place our attention and yet when we truly tune into the present moment, we realize that’s all there ever really is, The Eternal Moment Of Now.”

Tempus Fugit 2 Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film Directed by Nicholas Roemmelt in 2016.JPG

TEMPUS FUGIT 2 , the sequel of my first time-lapse movie „Tempus Fugit“, took me three years to shoot. I was visiting a lot of popular and well known places around the world but quite remote and deserted spots, too, in the last three years. Sometimes I had to hike for hours with heavy equipment to come to the spots. You will find locations in Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and USA (California, Utah, Washington, Oregon).

“We spent 5 days in Yosemite Valley, shooting 20,000 combined photos, and almost 300gb of raw time-lapses. This is Tahoe Media Collective’s groundbreaking film, and we are excited to share it!

120 Hours is a new time-lapse series based on the fact that you can be in these wild places, in a short amount of time, without being so disconnected from the world. There should be no excuses for not being able to do what drives your soul. Get up out of that office chair, get outside and enjoy the time you have on this earth.”

Wanderment cinematic time-lapse short film directed by Doug Urquhart 2014 Upthinktv

“”WANDERMENT” is the result of a 12-month collection of 4K time-lapse sequences captured while backpacking. Countless miles of hiking in the Appalachian Mountains and adventurous backpacking in California and Alaska provided no shortage of opportunity to capture the planet’s poetry in motion. Further juxtaposing these contrasting landscapes is the use of both color and black and white techniques throughout the film. Each time-lapse sequence, comprised of hundreds of still images, represents a chance to share these reflective moments far away from urban epicenters. It offers a simple reminder to step outside with your friends and family to experience and respect nature first-hand.”

“California Dreaming”: A Cinematic Short Film Of Coastal Marine Life By Howard Hall (2014)

“California Dreaming” is a cinematic short film off the coast of California filmed and directed by Howard Hall.

Filmed and Directed by:   Howard Hall

Produced by:  Michele Hall

Music by:  Shie Rozow

“I made this video to present at a Reef Check fund raiser a few years ago. The event was in Los Angeles and Reef Check wanted to feature California marine life. The video was originally called 100 Miles since the images were captured within 100 miles of the Reef Check venue.

Most of this video was captured aboard one of the Truth Aquatics liveaboard dive boats out of Santa Barbara, California. We have made many films aboard their vessels including two IMAX features, and enjoyed countless days if great diving with their support..

Finally, people often ask where my favorite diving is. Well, on a good day, nothing beats the Southern California kelp forest.”
