Echoes from a Silent World - Cinematic Poem Short Film by Matt Kleiner - July 31 2020

My entry for the Lockdown Short Film Contest by London Surf Film Festival. The concept was simple, dive into the archives. While the world was on lockdown earlier this year, take something old and make something new from the confines of your home.

While unable to work it was creatively therapeutic to dive into old hard drives and make something fresh that reflected the dream-like state of isolation.

The title pays tribute to that brief moment in time where the outside world stood still in early 2020. The majority of the globe could only reminisce on what were becoming faint memories of life outside of the house as reality began to seem like a figment of our imagination.

Rather than make something that got you excited to go surf, I wanted to make something unrealistic and dreamlike, saturated with colors and details from an ocean experience.

To bring the visuals to life I teamed up with Brennan Mercer for Sound Design. His ability to create a subtle world within a world of imagery set the tone for a true visceral effect. These were the sounds of nature and the world we all longed to be a part of once again.

Written and Narrated by Alan Watts

“It’s described poetically, you have the feeling of yugen when you see out in the distant water some ships hidden behind a far-off island. You have the feeling of yugen when you watch wild geese suddenly seen and then lost in the clouds. You have the feeling of yugen when you look across Mt Tamalpais, and you’ve never been to the other side, and you see the sky beyond. You don’t go over there to look and see what’s on the other side, that wouldn’t be yugen. You let the other side be the other side, and it invokes something in your imagination, but you don’t attempt to define it to pin it down. Yugen.”
