This video was created for the final of a class at RISD called Fiction Into Film. It was shot and edited with principles of movie-making and story telling in mind with help from a textbook called Film Art.
The soundtrack was and still is a source of confusion. This version is mainly ambient sounds with no narration or explanation. I like the idea, but for a 7 minute video it ends up moving kind of slowly.
I am in the processing of making a track in which the printed poem is read to test if that makes any difference.
The poem itself is one I picked for it’s relevance to what I am doing everyday, making. It is also written by my namesake, Kahlil (or khalil) Gibran, a poet and writer. The printed section is the first paragraph of a section called Work in a part of a book called The Prophet.
