Description

With the affordability of digital alternatives, the physical book is coming to an end. They are the structure of our culture who helped us defining the roots and the foundations of our culture by being an important tool that have been preserving, archiving and retaining the history of our existence. While some of us still consider books as the most important thing on earth, considering they bring amusement, company, increase knowledge and help in shaping our lives, however, what was once the biggest synonym of culture and knowledge, is now becoming a piece of decorative art stored on shelves. I believe we can advance technologically and still maintain some old good habits, like reading a book in the garden during a sunny day. In this project, I wish to raise the spectator’s awareness to the fact that books are getting forgotten in big libraries, their habits are having a huge impact on culture. At the same time, I intend to inspire people, with my movie, to get back in love with having a book on their hands, feeling, smelling, reading and sharing it because “Knowledge is only useful when it’s shared”. As a manifest I will make books, or their content, come out of the dusty shelves and travel across the city in order to make the information reach all of us, but that obviously can not be possible in the real world, the message would be “be the missing element in the video” so this channel of cultural transmission can continue to exist. Human Poetry is the final project from my Masters in Visual Effects at Ravensbourne. It was my first experience with post production where I had the opportunity to learn a lot about some VFX techniques. It is far from being perfect but puts an end on this journey. Thanks to everyone who helped me somehow. CAMERAS Canon 60D Panasonic GH2 SOFTWARES Premiere Pro After Effects Cinema 4D PFTrack
