“Alone With Everybody” by Charles Bukowski

the flesh covers the bone 
and they put a mind 
in there and 
sometimes a soul, 
and the women break 
vases against the walls 
and the men drink too 
much 
and nobody finds the 
one 
but keep 
looking 
crawling in and out 
of beds. 
flesh covers 
the bone and the 
flesh searches 
for more than 
flesh. 

there’s no chance 
at all: 
we are all trapped 
by a singular 
fate. 

nobody ever finds 
the one. 

the city dumps fill 
the junkyards fill 
the madhouses fill 
the hospitals fill 
the graveyards fill 

nothing else 
fills.

Elegy Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Jared Pelletier (2017)

Narrated by: Christopher Plummer

“A short film based on the setting and gameplay of Hinterland’s exploration-survival experience, “The Long Dark”, by Hinterland Studio Inc.

To illustrate this vision for how THE LONG DARK will make the transition to live-action, Hinterland has produced a five-minute short film, Elegy, directed by Jared Pelletier, performed by Oscar-winning actor Christopher Plummer, and written by van Lierop.

“I describe Elegy as a visual poem”, says van Lierop, who also executive produced the short. “Jared’s passion for the source material is evident — he really connected with THE LONG DARK’s artistic sensibilities, and the game’s unique sense of identity within its own fiction. I think Elegy stands as an example of the level of quality and the overall tone I’d like to deliver in THE LONG DARK film.”

My Mistress When She Walks Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by CD Morrish 2017

“Sonnet 130” by William Shakespeare 

My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips’ red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damasked, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress when she walks treads on the ground.
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare.

The Journey Cinematic Poem Short Film of Mary Oliver Poem Directed by Hayden Fortescue (2017)

“The Journey” by Mary Oliver

One day you finally knew
what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
kept shouting
their bad advice–
though the whole house
began to tremble
and you felt the old tug
at your ankles.
“Mend my life!”
each voice cried.
But you didn’t stop.
You knew what you had to do,
though the wind pried
with its stiff fingers
at the very foundations,
though their melancholy
was terrible.
It was already late
enough, and a wild night,
and the road full of fallen
branches and stones.
But little by little,
as you left their voices behind,
the stars began to burn
through the sheets of clouds,
and there was a new voice
which you slowly
recognized as your own,
that kept you company
as you strode deeper and deeper
into the world,
determined to do
the only thing you could do–
determined to save
the only life you could save.

“Hikari” is a Cinematic Poem Short Film Featuring Poet Natsuko Kure Directed By Casey Warren And Danielle Krieger.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:   Casey Warren And Danielle Krieger

Hikari Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Casey Warren And Danielle Krieger 2017

“We came to this earth without words. And in our thoughts we dreamt of the cosmos; looking towards the sky. It was only until we defined it, that we knew what it was. We thought it was unreachable. But we looked back and could see our own footsteps, tracing the path from long ago; where we came from all along. They both meet together at this single point: the end and the beginning. We are born without knowing who we are and we grow our lives to seek the answer to ‘I am’. This video is an epitaph for Hikari-san who’s life was cut short from that struggle.”

Narrated by: NATSUKO KURE

Hikari Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Casey Warren And Danielle Krieger 2017

“Nothing Stays Forever” by Shuntaro Tanikawa

When I was born, I was nameless
Like a water molecule
But right away I was fed
Vowels mouth to mouth
Consonants tickled my ears
I was called
And pulled away from the cosmos.
Oscillating the atmosphere
Carved into clay tablets.
Inscribed on bamboo
Recorded on sand
I would have loved to lose words
To be a tree singing in the wind
I would have loved to be a cloud
From a hundred thousand years ago
Now I go back to being nameless
With dirt over my eyes,
My ears and my mouth
With stars leading me by the fingers.

“The Finest Of The Breed” by Charles Bukowski

there’s nothing to discuss
there’s nothing to remember
there’s nothing to forget
it’s sad and it’s not sad
seems the most sensible thing a person can do
is sit with a drink in hand
as the walls wave their goodbye smiles
one comes through it all
with a certain amount of
efficiency and bravery
then leaves
some accept the possibility of God to help them get through
others take it staight on
and to these
I drink tonight.

“Roll the Dice”  by Charles Bukowski

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.

Grow, step back, and perspectives will change;
Just adrift on currents and unknow terrain.
As gently raised up, as sure as comes down,
Holding your course and even to ground.

“Grow is a story about ups and downs of life we all have to face sometimes, but I’d love everyone to interpret this in their own way. It’s a short personal film I’ve been working on in my spare time for the past year or so.”

People say “Get Lost”
So you decide to try.
But when you go into the woods,
Foreign sounds they make you shy.

People say “Get Lost”
So you try again;
This time in the ocean
But the tides don’t let you in.

“An homage on all the people wandering and following their own path towards their dream.

Not Afraid of the unknown and willing to get lost. To be free. And only live in the moment.
This film is has been shot in Tulum Mexico. A magical place for known for its special energy and similar minded people it attracts from all over the world. This piece has been created as attempt to inspire, dream and being naive.”
