Serenity Cinematic Poem Performance Short Film Directed by Vincent DiFrancesco 2018

“Serenity” by Edward Rowland Sills

Be still,—be still!
Midnight’s arch is broken
In thy ceaseless ripples.
Dark and cold below them
Runs the troubled water,—
Only on its bosom,
Shimmering and trembling,
Doth the glinted star-shine
                  Sparkle and cease.

Be still,—be still!
Boundless truth is shattered
On thy hurrying current.
Rest, with face uplifted,
Calm, serenely quiet;
Drink the deathless beauty—
Thrills of love and wonder
Sinking, shining, star-like;
Till the mirrored heaven
Hollow down within thee
Holy deeps unfathomed,
Where far thoughts go floating,
And low voices wander
              Whispering peace.

“Paris Noir”: A Cinematic Time-Lapse Music Short Film Directed By Benjamin Trancart (2017)

“Paris Noir” is a Cinematic Time-Lapse Music Short Film Directed By Benjamin Trancart.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by: Benjamin Trancart 

Music by: Juliette Gréco (“Paris Canaille”)


“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.”

“Never Forgotten”: A Cinematic Poem Short Film Featuring WWI A.E. Housman Poem Directed By Jamie Childs And Gareth Brannan (2016)

“Never Forgotten” is a Cinematic Poem Short Film Featuring World War I A.E. Housman Poem “Soldier From The Wars Returning” Directed By Jamie Childs And Gareth Brannan.

Directed by: Jamie Childs and Gareth Brannan

Music by:  Tom Player
Violin & Viola Solos: Johnathan Hill
Trumpet & Fugelhorn: Joe Morris
Cello: Tom Player
Cinematography by: Will Baldy
Edited by: David Fisher
Starring: Alfie Stewart
Poem Read by: Joe Blakemore

“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.

Original Music by:  Tim Kellner (Using Inuit instruments)

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.
