Haven’t made a film in a while, but had the chance recently. As part of a campaign to help kids recognize and celebrate their gifts, we put out a call for spoken-word poems. This one was written by James Midgley, to the prompt of sudden beauty, the idea that sometimes what is most beautiful and powerful in us is not the most obvious to see, but profound when discovered. Filmmaking is fun.
This is an image I made thinking of a piece I had seen in the market. The one I’d seen in the market was not for sale, and I couldn’t find out who the artist was, but I loved the idea of it and started playing around with what I thought might have been done in it. This is the result.
The photos were taken on a Long-Boat tour off the Chao Phraya river and in Jatujak market. Each section of the image was treated through Poladroid imagining software (it’s free!).
Hope you like it.
