Cinepoem: Emily Dickinson's After Great Pain (video)


Update 1/3: The video is finally up!!

After a very long delay I have finally found the time to assemble my newest Cinepoem video, joining Emily Dickinson's "After great pain, a formal feeling comes..." with mostly empty shots from Yasujiro Ozu's Late Spring. The first minute of the video is taken up by a free-form montage/collage whose frenetic pace offsets the contemplative mood of the second half. It's also partly inspired by a dream I had about six weeks ago. The Vimeo upload follows, and the YouTube embed appears after the jump.






Update 12/1: The Side-by-Side video is now up.

original message:

Due in large part to a weeklong out-of-town Thanksgiving vacation, I've fallen way behind on my videos. The Side-by-Side analysis of two weeks ago remains a work-in-progress (which really should be ready within a day, I swear!) and as a result I haven't even begun work yet on what was to be today's video - my second Cinepoem, cutting images to Julie Harris' reading of "After Great Pain." I'm very excited about the project, and already have a lot of ideas for it, but it will have to wait for a later date, probably this week.

Meanwhile, watch this space - I will update both for the Side by Side video when it appears, and also this Cinepoem. Hope your Thanksgiving was as enjoyable as mine!
