Like Water Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Chris McClean 2017

Poem by: Dan Crockett

Layers lifting
Moats of light shifting
Spheres of currents dance.
At the heart of the
Wildest storm is silence;
This is old music.
There are paths
Between the reefs,
Promises on the swell and dip.
Truth in droplets of our
Saline blood.
Our bold movement asks questions.
This is a place beyond borders,
Beyond you and me to us.
We are held in sway
As a merging unfolds,
The illusion of separation crumbling.
The glow of living faces falling,
Fine lines and faint traces
To a liquid place outside time
Where all our fences are broken.
Shadows and sunlight
In which we must become whole,
To Live, to breathe, to join.

People say “Get Lost”

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.”

“Postscript”: A Cinematic Poem Short Film Of Seamus Heaney Directed By Neil Moore (2017)

“Postscript” is a Cinematic Poem Short Film In Ireland Of Seamus Heaney Poem Directed By Neil Moore.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by: Neil Moore


“Short film about my translation of Seamus Heaney’s poem “Postscript”  “.


“Postscript” by Seamus Heaney 

Some time make the time to drive out west
Into County Clare, along the Flaggy Shore,
In September or October, when the wind
And the light are working off each other
So that the ocean on one side is wild
With foam and glitter, and inland among stones
The surface of a slate-grey lake is lit
By the earthed lightening of flock of swans,
Their feathers roughed and ruffling, white on white,
Their fully-grown headstrong-looking heads
Tucked or cresting or busy underwater.
Useless to think you’ll park or capture it
More thoroughly. You are neither here nor there,
A hurry through which known and strange things pass
As big soft buffetings come at the car sideways
And catch the heart off guard and blow it open.

If one faced the abyss,
And more than a king
If one tames his nightmares.

“Young Sea” by Carl Sandburg

The sea is never still.
It pounds on the shore
Restless as a young heart,

The sea speaks
And only the stormy hearts
Know what it says:
It is the face
of a rough mother speaking.

The sea is young.
One storm cleans all the hoar
And loosens the age of it.
I hear it laughing, reckless.

They love the sea,
Men who ride on it
And know they will die
Under the salt of it

Let only the young come,
Says the sea.

Let them kiss my face
And hear me.
I am the last word
And I tell
Where storms and stars come from.

“ICELAND – Here’s To The Travelers”: A Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed By Tobi Schnorpfeil (2016)

“ICELAND – Here’s To The Travelers” is a Cinematic Poem Travel Short Film Directed By Tobi Schnorpfeil.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:  Tobi Schnorpfeil

Orginal Music by: Jan Metan
Written by: Will Doer


“A cinematic video showing our epic journey on the Iceland ring road.


Iceland has always been one of my dream destinations! Its rugged terrain, massive waterfalls and arctic flair have always been famous for being highly photogenic. There is something wild about this island and I tried to capture it in this film. Together with some friends we rented cars and planned to make the ring road in about 2 weeks which is not a lot of time. A major highlight of the trip was being able to see some intense polar lights!”

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.

“Route 44”: A Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film In South Africa Directed By Liesel Kershoff (2016)

“Route 44” is a Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film in Western Cape, South Africa Filmed and Directed by Liesel Kershoff.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by: Liesel Kershoff

Music by:  Alexandr Shamaluev

Route 44 Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film in South Africa Directed by Liesel Kershoff

“The R44 in South Africa is a provincial route that connect Piketberg to Kleinmond, running past historical towns like Stellenbosch on it’s way to the Atlantic Ocean.

The most spectacular part of this route is between Gorden’s Bay and Betty’s Bay where it winds along the coast through the Kogel Bay region. Sheer cliffs fall into the Atlantic Ocean with the R44 hugging the mountain on winding turns.

This short film covers the scenes I explored; starting at Betty’s Bay, passing Pringle Bay and Rooi Els and ends at the Steenbras River mouth (Gorden’s Bay) with a beautiful green saltwater pool caught between slabs of rock and a full moon rising over the mountain.”
