Filmed, Edited and Directed by: Victor Gouhie

Baixa Chiado Cinematic Poem Promotional Short Film Directed by Victor Gouhie 2017

Poem by: Eugénio De Andrade 

“Someone says slowly:
Lisbon, You know…?
I know. It’s a girl
Barefoot and light,
A sudden and clear wind
In her hair,
Some thin wrinkles
Peaking her eyes.
The open solitude
On the lips and fingers,
Going down and steps
And steps up to the rivers.”

Skygarden Cinematic Poem Short Film Trailer in Switzerland Directed by Fabian Weber 2017

“We are all on the journey we call life;
And as it unrolls before us, day after day,
We never know where it will lead.
It seems we spend our lives trying to
Capture life’s special moments.
To hold on to forever.”

Skygarden Cinematic Poem Short Film Trailer in Switzerland Directed by Fabian Weber 2017

“Auditory perception is triggered by tonal phenomenona, such as language and music. These stimuli are the gateway to recent and distant memories of all kinds, the sequences of pleasant and often unpleasant experiences that shape and accompany us throughout our lives. They are part of us and make us who we are today.

An emotional homage to Switzerland, nature, music and life in all its facets.”

The Female Bond Cinematic Poem Short Film For She's Mercedes Directed by Aldona Kwiatkowski 2017

Poem by: Jacqueline Suskin

“There is no better bond than ours: female friendship and mutual support from childhood on.”

“For this year’s International Women’s Day, She’s Mercedes tells a story of feminine energy and female unity, envisioning a utopian community based on diversity, warm fellowship and 
a regal attitude, starring Malaysian musician Yuna.

Between cactus fields and green hills a tale unfolds that plays with the viewers’ perception of dream and reality. Over the course of the film, an invisible bond brings the four protagonists together. They meet in a magical place that serves as a visual interpretation of an inspiring, connecting and empowering bond between our heroines. Only to be interrupted by a surprising, final plot twist that sheds new light on their friendship…

She’s Mercedes is an initiative dedicated to inspiring, connecting and empowering women who are driven to make things happen.”

“It’s Time”: A Cinematic Poem Showreel Short Film Directed By Mark Chisholm (2017)

“It’s Time” is a Cinematic Poem  Showreel Short Film Directed By Mark Chisholm.

Edited and Directed by: Mark Chisholm


Produced by: Brayden Weibe, Laura Burke and Garth Collins
Cinematography: Trevor Lang
Creative and Digital Production: Rick McBride
Sound by: Robert Duhaime and Kyle Hudin
Music by: Ryan Taubert

Production Company: Timelapse FIlm Media House

Narrated by: Laura Burke


“When you started out,
You said you’d never look back.
But you had no idea then
That you’d end up here.
How could something so small
Come to this;
You started a time spark
That became a wildfire.”

“While I was cutting this reel, I new something was missing. It such a powerful score which matched the visuals, but I felt like it needed something more. It just felt like I was listening to my favourite a bands songs but the instrumental version… So I hit up my sister and told her I needed some poetry. I needed a voice over for my reel, it was the last peice. The only direction I gave her was to use the visuals ( Fire, eyes, water, or whatever it was ) and create a feeling that was inspiring and true to our story as filmmakers behind “Timelapse”. The last piece of advice I gave her was to not fear the feeling of vulnerability when creating this. I knew she would overthink the project because she was nervous of what I might think of it… but that would kill all creativy, and her ideas would be limited. I told her to write anything that she loved and felt right to her. The result… Being the artistic human that she is, literally 5 hours later I got this recording. The slate was “take two” and she nailed it.”

“Somewhere I Have Never Traveled” by e.e. cummings

somehwere i have never travelled,gladly beyond
any experience,your eyes have their silence:
in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,
or which i cannot touch because they are too near

your slightest look easily will unclose me
though i have closed myself as fingers,
you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens
(touching skilfully,mysteriously)her first rose

or if your wish be to close me,i and
my life will shut very beautifully,suddenly,
as when the heart of this flower imagines
the snow carefully everywhere descending;

nothing which we are to perceive in this world equals
the power of your intense fragility: whose texture
compels me with the colour of its countries,
rendering death and forever with each breathing

(i do not know what it is about you that closes
and opens;only something in me understands
the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)
nobody,not even the rain, has such small hands

Project for METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry in Japan)


“This film was shot between June and September 2016, after the Kumamoto earthquake.

Japan has a long history of Buddhism and religious Mythology, where many have derived from other Asian cultures. One popular belief is that there is a God in everything. Until 20th century, Kyushu was seen as Japan’s gate to the world and a centre for trade. It has historically been the first stop for foreign traders and travelers in Japan and a place from which the outside influences would spread to the rest of the country. Time has moved on, but the landscapes and legends remain to this day.


The Kumamoto earthquake has caused serious damage to the region. Many people have suffered physical and mental injuries and tourism has fallen drastically. The aim of this film is to disseminate the new appeal of the Kyushu region from a different perspective and to lift those affected by the earthquake.

With this, we invite you to come on a journey with us to discover the real Kyushu where Gods, myths, and legends were created.”

“The Crown Of The Robey Chicago”: A Cinematic Poem Time-Lapse Short Film By Max Wilson (2016)

“The Crown Of The Robey Chicago” is a Cinematic Poem Time-Lapse Promotional Short Film Featuring Alan Watts Directed By Max Wilson.

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:  Max Wilson


“The Robey Hotel in Chicago sits high above the famous six corners in Wicker Park/Buck Town neighborhoods. The Robey Hotel was recently renovated for the past few years and transformed from the old Northwest Tower into an amazing place to visit and stay. This was a focused piece upon the top of The Robey and the spectacular views.”


Excerpt from “What Is Reality?” by Alan Watts:

“It is that our attention is captured by the figure rather then the background and by the relatively enclosed area rather than the diffuse area and by something that’s moving rather than something that is still. To all the phenomena that attract our attention in this way, we attribute a higher degree of reality than we do the things we don’t notice.”
