A series of videos part of a multimedia portfolio done for my first year at the MFA of Performing Arts at Den Danske Scenekunst Skole here in Denmark. The purpose of them, along with a publication, is to narrate the process of acquiring information and transforming it into new creative material, adding forth to the narrative.
Gettin’ On With It:
This short film was created during the fall of 2020 in celebration of the release of The Ways of the Firefly, a poetry book in German and English released by Moloko Print during the pandemic. It is filmed in Marielyst, Nykøbing, in the south of Denmark, and the music is composed by Jevgeniy Turovskiy, who corresponded with me digitally from Berlin for the creation of this project.
The process? For the camera, I used my smartphone, and then animated on Procreate and edited on DaVinci & After Effects.
The film has been screened in the following film festivals around the world:
-Mobile Got Talent, Pakistan October 2020
-International Art Film Festival, London, October 2020
-Helios Sun Poetry Festival, Mexico, November 2020
(with whom I also did a virtual conference about interdisciplinary creations and the making of this piece).
-Runoviikko / Poetry Week Festival, Finland, November 2020
