“Bluebird” by Charles Bukowski (1992)

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too tough for him,
I say, stay in there, I’m not going
to let anybody see
you.
there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I pour whiskey on him and inhale
cigarette smoke
and the ****s and the bartenders
and the grocery clerks
never know that
he’s
in there.

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too tough for him,
I say,
stay down, do you want to mess
me up?
you want to screw up the
works?
you want to blow my book sales in
Europe?
there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too clever, I only let him out
at night sometimes
when everybody’s asleep.
I say, I know that you’re there,
so don’t be
sad.
then I put him back,
but he’s singing a little
in there, I haven’t quite let him
die
and we sleep together like
that
with our
secret pact
and it’s nice enough to
make a man
weep, but I don’t
weep, do
you?

Untie Cinematic Poem Short Film In Asia and Indonesia Directed by Charlene van Kasteren and Guust Mulder 2016

Rotterdam-based director Charlene van Kasteren talks about Untie, a film she co-directed with Dutch filmmaker Guust Mulder, about a man trying to recall his memories by writing them down:

“Guust and I were planning a sabbatical to China and Indonesia. As filmmakers we always have the urge to shoot something. To simply ‘shoot anything’ is too random, so we ended up with a theme linked to the song “Ne Me Quitte Pas” by Belgian singer Jacques Brel. Every shot we took had to be related to this feeling.

“Slowly we found out what story our sabbatical wanted to tell: the story of forgetting memories and holding onto life”

China-A Prisma Tale Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film Directed by Drew Geraci in 2016

Production Company:  District 7 Media

China-A Prisma Tale Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film Directed by Drew Geraci

“A recent journey to China yielded fantastic imagery that was yearning to be used. We decided that we would take the highly popular Prisma App to the next level and re-shoot an entire time-lapse video using the app itself. After more than 80 hours of post production and 2500 individual frames we were able to complete this tedious project and hand stitch it all together. The result is an immersive experience that paints a completely different picture from reality.”

“Between Heaven And Earth”: A Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film In China Directed By Henry Jun Wah Lee (2015)

Between Heaven And Earth Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film In China Directed By Henry Jun Wah Lee

“Between heaven and earth exists all living things. Natural forces like light, wind, heat, cold, and water shape our existence just as they have the breathtaking landscapes in China’s Zhangjiajie National Forest.

During rainy season, the moisture turns into fog which flows among the rock formations as if islands of rock and trees were floating in a sea of clouds. And light rain won’t do it. You need a downpour. Then, you need to be fast, as the fog doesn’t stay around for very long. The right conditions don’t happen often but when it does, it is an amazing sight to behold.”

“Trading Nirvana”: A Cinematic Short Film In Southeast Asia Directed By Ryan Emond (2013)

“Trading Nirvana” is a Cinematic Short Film In Southeast Asia Directed By Ryan Emond.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:  Ryan Emond

Music by:  Evenings (“Babe” Remixed by Shigeto)

“Trading Nirvana made itself up as I went along. I focused on shooting interesting situations, and tried to allow each scene to tell its own story rather than conforming to something preconceived. The result is a collection of meaningful experiences that give a different perspective on everyday situations. I augmented the shots by playing them both backwards and forwards, sped up and slowed down.”

“Three minutes of video for three weeks of travel, three countries, three cultures (and three tee-shirts in my backpack !). I took a train ticket for the Trans-Siberian railway, in order to reach Beijing from Moscow, crossing Mongolia. I travelled alone with my bag, half-filled with my video gear. At that time, I didn’t knew that my ticket for that seat 22 would be the beginning of a once in a lifetime journey.”

“Over the past year, I have been to places away from the hustle and bustle city and taken pictures of Hong Kong’s natural scenery, the pure, natural side of Hong Kong. These thousands of pictures have been turned into this time lapse video. I want to show that we can still find these amazing natural scenery such as sunrise, sunset, starry nights and even clouds in our Hong Kong. Sadly, upon the increasing demands of urban developments, it would be a question of seeing such beautiful natural scenery of Hong Kong in the future.

Just as the lead-in “What is depleting is not the shutter but time” of my recent publication “The Beautiful Hong Kong Seen by Me” says, I won’t mind killing the shutter of my camera, as long as I can capture things that I see today as a review in the future.”
