“With its imposing mountains, endless plateaus and echoing valleys, Norway is a country where nature takes the lead. Using time-lapse, this film attempts to capture the ebb and flow of the seasons and is a result of one year of planning, a second year of shooting and four months of editing.

20,000 kilometers have been travelled, 200,000 photos taken and 20 terabytes worth of hard drives filled. Months have been spent hiking through the mountains, sleeping in tents and travelling through the entire country hunting for the best locations.”

If Cinematic Poem Short Film of Rudyard Kipling Directed by Matt Baker And Michael Sugrue 2017

“If” by Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you   
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,   
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;   
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;   
    If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;   
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;   
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,   
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,   
    Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,   
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,   
    And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

Carved In Mayhem Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Dan DiFelice 2016.JPG

“Carved in Mayhem is the poetic depiction of one man’s unique journey. It is the picture when the forces of nature that surround one, collide with an opposing resistance of the human spirit.

Johnny Bang Reilly is a man on a journey. Like many of us, he is on a search for peace and truth, however his path to this point is what sets him apart. His life has arched from receiving abuse to giving forgiveness, incarceration to liberation, hate to gratitude: trading in a sealed fate for an accidental destiny.”

Carved In Mayhem Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Dan DiFelice

“Carved In Mayhem” by Johnny Bang Reilly

I got to a point in my existence
with my head insisting i live to kill
Spilling my ills…I was engulfed to go public and show my life was rubbished. Everything about me obsessed to mess a man’s life up
and leave his family with the knowledge i cut his head off
I preserved me…to decay them
I carved me in my mayhem, a stone cut from the same element.
My mother gave birth to a story that will shame men, this became my importance. every day that came and went
venting mentally my mentality.
I sedated my impatience with drugs and booze.
I stalked and wrote the horror story.
Lies gave me my act as an asset
my ego relaxed in the sociopathic…
Every day i fight with my lack of patience, so i sedate me, making me weak That don’t work.
How can i have my dream to be a nightmare?
I’m not sharp and my body is not prepared…so i cleaned my act.
Trained hard to let the steam off,
cleaned my diet to strengthen my mean heart,
but it cleaned my heart.
Thoughts were feeding my fed up,
love was fixing my head up.
A new story was starting to write itself
I was liking myself
I realized I was not going to just kill him…I was going to kill me Fuck that.
Now I live to shine
relax my spine in the quiet of the divine that gives the sky
To cover my life I live like I don’t want anyone to die.
Vibrant I feel facilitated for no reason other than something loves me to be alive… I oblige
With body heart and mind…
I have found my spirit
my creativity is how I live
my life realizes it.
Read my manifest manifested,
from cursed to blessed…
the hand of the divine
gave me time to rise and rest.
Blessed.
I eat sleep train and move
to be the best version of me my children can get and our love can ensue… blessed…
I’m grateful
not hate obsessed.
My life was carved from a stone,
52 years was never too late to begin again.

“Trandumskogen”: A Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film In Norway By Lasse Henning (2016)

“Trandumskogen” is a Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film of the World War II Memorial Site Directed by Lasse Henning.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:  Lasse Henning

Original Sound Recording by:  Lasse Henning

Trandumskogen Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film in Norway Directed by Lasse Henning in 2016

“The closest neighbor to Gardermoen international airport in Oslo, Norway is the World War 2 memorial site of Trandumskogen. Between 1940 and 1945 the enemy secretly executed 194 prisoners and buried them in 21 unmarked graves. The site offers some unique structures and a peaceful but eerie location, which I set out to capture in this timelapse experimental film. The film was shot between september 2015 and january 2016 in temperatures as low as – 25 Celsius /- 12 Fahrenheit.

This is not a “typical” timelapse film, rather more experimental. I wanted to do something very different from the classic and beautiful postcard and milky way scenery, aiming to convey the eerie mood and sad beauty of this place.

The shots were lit with torches and large candles in addition to the available natural light. Instead of using music, I wanted to compose a track based only on ambient sounds.”

“Heart Of A Dog”: A Cinematic Poem Short Film Trailer Directed By Laurie Anderson (2015)

“Heart Of A Dog” is a Cinematic Poem Short Film Trailer Directed By Laurie Anderson.

Written, Animated and Directed by:  Laurie Anderson

Original Musical Score by:  Laurie Anderson

Cinematography by:  Laurie Anderson, Toshiaki Ozawa and Joshua Zucker-Pluda

Edited by:  Melody London and Katherine Nolfi

Heart Of A Dog Cinematic Poem Short Film Trailer Written and Directed by Laurie Anderson 2015

“Musician/performance artist Laurie Anderson has created a remarkable new film: a wry, wondrous and haunting cinematic journey through love, death and language. Centering on her beloved rat terrier Lolabelle, who died in 2011, Anderson composes a personal essay weaving together childhood memories, philosophical musings on data collection, contemporary surveillance culture and the Buddhist conception of the afterlife, as well as heartfelt tributes to the artists and thinkers who inspire her. Fusing her own witty narration with original violin compositions, hand-drawn animation and artwork, she creates a hypnotic collage of visual language out of her life and art, examining how stories are constructed and told, and how we use them to make sense of our lives.”

“Fifth Avenue”: A Cinematic Poem Short Film With Exiled Pakistani Poet Hasan Mujtaba Directed By Sofian Khan (2015)

“Fifth Avenue” is a Cinematic Poem Short Film Featuring Exiled Pakistani Poet Hasan Mujtaba Directed By Sofian Khan.

Directed by:  Sofian Khan 

Original Musical Score by:  Joshua Green

Cinematography by:  Bob Blankemeier

Produced by:  Capital K Pictures

Fifth Avenue A Cinematic Poem Short Film Featuring Poet Hasan Mujtaba Directed by Sofian Khan 2015

Additional Film Footage by:  Madiha Aijaz

Sound and Mix by:  Evan Manners

Trumpet Player:  John Lake

“The poem “Fifth Avenue” is part of Hasan’s recently published collection of  Urdu and Punjabi poetry. Koel Shehr Ki Katha, released this year by Saanjh Publications Lahore, Pakistan.

The poem recounts one summer day when, sitting on 5th avenue in Manhattan, Hasan witnessed a parade of Hare Krishna devotees making their way down the avenue.  Amongst them, he saw a man who looked like Allen Ginsberg — one of Hasan’s favorite American poets.  Though it was not him, the sight of this lookalike gave Hasan an important thought.  If this American poet once journeyed to India in search of inspiration, why could Hasan, a Pakistani, not come to America and likewise find some spark of beauty to write from.  Hence began his journey to create this singular collection of poetry that fuses his new home with images of that which he left behind.”

Fifth Avenue A Cinematic Poem Short Film Featuring Poet Hasan Mujtaba Directed by Sofian Khan

Excerpts from “Koel Shehr Ki Katha/Tale Of A Cuckoo’s City” by Hasan Mujtaba

(English translation by Manan Ahmed)

Amid the crowd of Hare Krishnas,

an old man who looked like Allen Ginsberg

Amid the riot of saffron color

the cymbals, the drums

whites, blacks, and rainbow colors

in June’s silvery light

silent, alone,

unique

as if he was the exclamation point of this whole philosophy

In the walking crowds of Fifth Avenue

I, a lost child

He, an old man who looked like Allen Ginsberg

Holding his thought’s fingers,

I walked far away

far to the lanes of Sehwan

“in public, I dance”

It seems a vision from a dream.

I take Fifth Avenue

I take the lane of Sehwan

Written on the shores of Indus, I take all of Rig Veda

I take Qur’an

I reject Chagai

I refute Pokhran

I deny the whole of Aurangzeb’s creations.

Home.

when I sing

songs of my exile

I return to my self

But they speak back to me

in the language of bullets

they do not read

what is written on the walls

“A donkey pisses on the General’s Uniform”

Those blood soaked lanes of Delhi

that naked Sarmad

Now your Gaze

Soils the purity of the Holiest, the Righteous

That woman inside me

These vines of grapes

That moon over Hudson

This silvery dusk over Indus

descends like revelation on a Prophet.

“The Voyage Of Life”: A Cinematic Nature Short Film In Scotland Directed By Patrick Duijndam and Aron van Blooijs (2015)

“The Voyage Of Life”: A Cinematic Nature Short Film In Scotland Directed By Patrick Duijndam and Aron van Blooijs.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:  Patrick Duijndam and Aron van Blooijs

Original Music Composed by:  Daan van Haren

The Voyage of Life 2015 Cinematic Nature Short Film In Isle of Skye Scotland Directed by Patrick Duijndam and Aron van Blooijs

“In a time of hustle, emerging cities and high expectation, more and more people venture into the wilderness to find their peace, but also looking for the meaning of life. Just like in the Romantic period, there is a desire for discovery and longing for real nature among a movement of creative people: New Outdoor Creativity.

Romantic painter Thomas Cole made a series of paintings in 1842, in which a man’s journey through nature can be seen as a metaphor for the journey that men makes through life. In this piece, filmmakers Patrick Duijndam and Aron van Blooijs, along with songwriter Daan van Haren, pay tribute to Thomas Cole and his series of paintings. The result of their trip through the Isle of Skye, Scotland, is a music-video that will surely please adventurers, travel enthusiasts and lovers of good music.”

“Kumano”: A Cinematic Short Film In Japan Directed By Mathieu Le Lay.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:   Mathieu Le Lay

Original Music by:   Oliver Dowie

Kumano Cinematic Short Film In Japan Directed by Mathieu Le Lay

“Kumano is a region in Japan where Shugendo, the Way of ascetic training and testing in holy mountains, has been practised for over a thousand years. This entire short film was shot there. It shows Yamabushi monk Kosho Tateishi, a Master and Teacher of Shugendo, during prayer rituals performed in the wild and at his temple. In his spiritual practices, Kosho is in visceral contact with the elements (earth, water, fire, wind) and in fusion with sacred Nature. The experience of Life through the physical senses awakes our consciousness and ultimately leads to enlightenment in this very body.”

“Gotham City SF”: A Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film Directed By Toby Harriman (2015)

“Gotham City SF” is a Cinematic Time-Lapse Short Film in San Francisco Directed By Toby Harriman.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by: Toby Harriman

Gotham City SF Time-lapse Short Film directed by Toby Harriman 2015

“This idea came from the ether; it emerged over time. Several years ago (2012) while exploring my passion for black and white photography I found myself wandering into a look I call ‘Gotham’.

I have a passion for time-lapse as well, so it wasn’t long before the two processes started to merge in my mind, and the concept for Gotham City SF was born! Over the intervening years I have collected and edited this footage while juggling my freelance career and time working at Lytro (a new camera technology).

This film means a lot to me. It is one of the biggest personal projects I’ve ever worked on.

I searched for music for months. Finally deciding to work with James Everingham: a talented 14 year old from the UK. (Now 16) He ended up composing a full custom composition and it came out perfect!”
