Summer is moving along and soon it will be Autumn, my favorite time of year. This week’s film transports us ahead a few weeks and takes us on visit to Maine’s Rockport Harbor on a blustery October day. This short features another original piece of music by the talented John Mehrmann, this one created specifically for this film.
and it was good
The project’s inaugural film is an abstract piece resulting from video I’ve been collecting for the past year or two. I’ve been shooting light in motion whenever it happens to present itself to me and I’ve finally compiled some of these shots into this short. It’s scored with a piece of choral music from my talented friend, the musician and composer John Mehrmann, who’s work you’ll be hearing more of as the project unfolds over the next year. While living through the global pandemic, I’ve been trying to be more present and connected to the world around me. To notice more and be more appreciative of even the simplest things. That was one of the origins of this project, to reflect on things that often go unnoticed, or at least unacknowledged. Another is to keep myself challenged and engaged creatively when so much of the work I had planned for the past year has been put on hold or canceled outright. These films will vary in length from a minute or so to several minutes. Some will tell stories. Others will be purely experiential. So there you have it. Look for a new film posted here sometime on Sunday each week. I hope you'll find them interesting enough to keep you coming back for more. I’ll keep them all posted below so if someone wants to join in and catchup on the previous weeks they’ll always be available. Thanks for looking in and I hope you’ll be back. Dale
