HEEBOK LEE – Tread Softly


He wishes for the Cloths of Heaven

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread upon my dreams.

(W. B. Yeats)


Here’s a new installment in cross blogging. You’ll find another short by the same author on Ticklebooth.

“In 1889, William Butler Yeats met Maud Gonne, an actress and revolutionary, who became his great love for the next 20 years. She was the inspiration of his life and his imagination. However, he never received her love in return.”

Based on the short piece you can read above, this short movie perfectly blends Yeats’ western poetic and oriental sensibility, astounding motion graphics with a beautiful anime soundtrack.

The short has been made by Heebok Lee and showcased all around the world, from One Dot Zero to Siggraph. And it’s great.

The music comes from Escaflowne original sound track by Hajime Mizoguchi and Yoko Kanno. Voice by David Winters.

And now, you can jump on Ticklebooth for Voices of Whale while this one downloads.

Eccovi una nuova puntata del cross blogging. Trovate un altro corto dello stesso autore su Ticklebooth.

“Nel 1889, William Butler Yeats incontra Maud Gonne, attrice e rivoluzionaria, che sarà il suo grande amore per i successivi venti anni. Fu l’ispirazione della sua vita e dalla sua immaginazione, anche se il suo amore non è mai stato ricambiato.”

Basato sulla breve poesia che potete leggere sopra, il corto miscela alla perfezione la poetica occidentale di Yeats e la sensibilità orientale, motion graphics strepitosa ed una bella colonna sonora.

Il film è stato realizzato da Heebok Lee ed ha girato i festival per mezzo mondo, da One Dot Zero al Siggraph. Ed è grandioso!

La musica viene dalla colonna sonora di Escaflowne, di Hajime Mizoguchi e Yoko Kanno. Voce di David Winters.

Ed ora, mentre questo si scarica, passate pure su Ticklebooth per Voices of Whale.
