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 World Before Me is a modern-day round the world trip, set to the words of a 19th century poet.

‘Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road, healthy, free, the world before me.’ 160 years have passed since Walt Whitman penned this text, but feelings about travel remain the same. We’re still inspired by the open road and still excited by discovering the unknown.

In the fall of 2015, while preparing for a trip that would take me literally around the world, I couldn’t shake the desire to share the experience of travel, which for me is a very personal one. This film is the culmination of that desire. I carried my camera for 5 months through 15 countries. The endless metropolis of Tokyo, tiny islands of The Philippines, busy streets of India, the Swiss Alps and the Scottish Highlands. They’re all right here, for you, in 6 minutes.”

Excerpts from “Song of the Open Road” by Walt Whitman
1
Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road,
Healthy, free, the world before me,
The long brown path before me leading wherever I choose.
Henceforth I ask not good-fortune, I myself am good-fortune,
Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing,
Done with indoor complaints, libraries, querulous criticisms,
Strong and content I travel the open road.
The earth, that is sufficient,
I do not want the constellations any nearer,
I know they are very well where they are,
I know they suffice for those who belong to them.
(Still here I carry my old delicious burdens,
I carry them, men and women, I carry them with me wherever I go,
I swear it is impossible for me to get rid of them,
I am fill’d with them, and I will fill them in return.)
2
You road I enter upon and look around, I believe you are not all that is here,
I believe that much unseen is also here.
Here the profound lesson of reception, nor preference nor denial,
The black with his woolly head, the felon, the diseas’d, the illiterate person, are not denied;
The birth, the hasting after the physician, the beggar’s tramp, the drunkard’s stagger, the laughing party of mechanics,
The escaped youth, the rich person’s carriage, the fop, the eloping couple,
The early market-man, the hearse, the moving of furniture into the town, the return back from the town,
They pass, I also pass, any thing passes, none can be interdicted,
None but are accepted, none but shall be dear to me.

TEMPUS FUGIT 2 , the sequel of my first time-lapse movie „Tempus Fugit“, took me three years to shoot. I was visiting a lot of popular and well known places around the world but quite remote and deserted spots, too, in the last three years. Sometimes I had to hike for hours with heavy equipment to come to the spots. You will find locations in Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and USA (California, Utah, Washington, Oregon).

“Ode To Valser”: A Cinematic Poem Short Film Promo By Marcel Langenegger (2016)

 

“Ode to Valser” is a Cinematic Poem Short Film Promo Directed by Marcel Langenegger.

Directed by:  Marcel Langenegger

Music by:  Anders Trentemøller (“Miss You”)

Produced by:  Chocolate Films

Written by: Peter Schulz

Ode To Valser Cinematic Poem Short Film Promo Directed by Marcel Langenegger.JPG

“The captivating origin of the water and the years of refinement through the mountains gave communicative fuel to the new Valser brand film – “Ode to Valser”. Derived from the brand concept “Foundation” and the communication strategy “Made by Mountains” (“Vo Berga gmacht”) the film tells the story of how the water is “made” – from the product’s own perspective. Mountains are not only the origin and source of the Valser water, but stand for naturalness, stability, peace and Swiss values. The new brand film dramatizes the waters own story through authentic elements and subtle poetry along with the desire for originality, authenticity, deceleration, and simplicity.

In addition to the enigmatic scenes in the film, shot on location in Vals, comes the musical piece “Miss you” with high emotional impact composed by the famous Danish electronic music producer Trentemøller.”
