Ode To New York City Cinematic Poem Short Film Featuring Walt Whitman Directed By Alessio Cuomo 2018

 

“Travel magazine Wideoyster presents a poetry film about New York. Ode To New York by Walt Whitman. A poetry video we made for travel magazine WideOyster.
The poem Give Me The Splendid Silent Sun was published in 1865, but Whitmans sharp-witted observations of the city are, perhaps, even more relevant today than when the poem was written.

Walt loved New York. Even though at the time it was a tough city to live in. He felt energized instead of overwhelmed by its constant motion, heard music instead of madness, and saw humanity instead of strangeness in its crowds.”

“GIVE ME THE SPLENDID SILENT SUN” by Walt Whitman
GIVE me the splendid silent sun, with all his beams full-
dazzling;
Give me juicy autumnal fruit, ripe and red from the 
orchard;
Give me a field where the unmow’d grass grows;
Give me an arbor, give me the trellis’d grape;
Give me fresh corn and wheat—give me serene-moving 
animals, teaching content;
Give me nights perfectly quiet, as on high plateaus west 
of the Mississippi, and I looking up at the stars;
Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers, 
where I can walk undisturb’d;
Give me for marriage a sweet-breath’d woman, of whom 
I should never tire;
Give me a perfect child—give me, away, aside from the 
noise of the world, a rural domestic life;
Give me to warble spontaneous songs, reliev’d, recluse 
by myself, for my own ears only;
Give me solitude—give me Nature—give me again, 
O Nature, your primal sanities!
—These, demanding to have them, (tired with ceaseless 
excitement, and rack’d by the war-strife;)
These to procure, incessantly asking, rising in cries from 
my heart,
While yet incessantly asking, still I adhere to my city;
Day upon day, and year upon year, O city, walking 
your streets,
Where you hold me enchain’d a certain time, refusing 
to give me up;
Yet giving to make me glutted, enrich’d of soul—you 
give me forever faces;

Nômade Life A Poem II is a Cinematic Poem Promotional Short Film Directed By Michael Abt (2018)

“Blessings” by Darpan

We call up on celestial realms,
the Angelic beings, the planetary guides and protectors,
and the ascended ones
to bless mankind and to be present here with us.
We call up on the Divine light of Love, Truth and Harmony
to shine in places that need healing and guide our way.
We ask for these blessing with great reverence,
from our Mother – the Earth, the Sky, the Moon, the Stars,
the Sun – our Father.
May we always remember we’re pure consciousness,
the essence of Life, the source of all things.
May we find the courage to let go fear and the pain of past conditioning.
Let us walk upon the Earth gently, as true Spiritual Warriors,
into dimensional midwifes giving birth to our True self.
Letting go of separation, evolving beyond limitation
into divine self-expression thereby assisting into a co-creation
of a dawning light filled world.
Om Shanti, Shanti…

I Am Home Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Jerom Fischer 2018

‘I am home’ is a visual sci-fi poem about a simulation going through different stages of self-conceptualisation.

I Am Home Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Jerom Fischer 2018

We were invited to Bulgaria to work together with EXE and Stratospheric on something extraordinary. As part of the launch for a new club in Sofia, EXE wanted to release a short film that touched upon the social aspects of their brand. The abstract story we created revolves around a female simulation that goes through various stages of self-conceptualisation and identification. From the very basic act of recognising her own body to the complex analysis of social identity. ‘I am home’ is ultimately a first glimpse at what is going to be a new home in Sofia, built by a very inspiring group of people.

We set a fire to explore the night.

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.

Şahin Pipo Cinematic Poem Promotional Short Film Directed By Vahap Sen 2017

“When We Two Parted” by George Gordon, Lord Byron

When we two parted
In silence and tears,
Half broken-hearted
To sever for years,
Pale grew thy cheek and cold,
Colder thy kiss;
Truly that hour foretold
Sorrow to this.

The dew of the morning
Sunk chill on my brow–
It felt like the warning
Of what I feel now.
Thy vows are all broken,
And light is thy fame;
I hear thy name spoken,
And share in its shame.

They name thee before me,
A knell to mine ear;
A shudder comes o’er me–
Why wert thou so dear?
They know not I knew thee,
Who knew thee too well–
Long, long shall I rue thee,
Too deeply to tell.

In secret we met–
In silence I grieve,
That thy heart could forget,
Thy spirit deceive.
If I should meet thee
After long years,
How should I greet thee?–
With silence and tears.

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.
