This is the second film I made based on a text written and recited by Carol Novack (1948-2011).
The first one, "Civil War," is here vimeo.com/26869484.
The text of "Destination" (and "Civil War") can be found in the book "Giraffes in Hiding: The Mythical Memoirs of Carol Novack." (tinyurl.com/d93v9lv)
Music by Don Meyer.
The images dialog with the narrative while following their own logic.
The images were made from a series of photos taken by my son Georges (he's 15) during a recent trip to Belgium, photos he then assembled in beautiful panoramas (used here as well).
Here's an example: tinyurl.com/9q5l7j2
Other films made with his help are here: vimeo.com/tag:georgesdetheux
I processed his images in a variety of applications (Still Life, Studio Artist and especially, Final Cut Pro).
Carol Novack died of cancer on December 29, 2011. She had so much left to live, to share, to write!
May she have found her town!
A third movie done with/for/to Carol's writing and the music of Donald Meyer is now on line, "Refuge," here: vimeo.com/82828679
"Destination" is festival ready (digital file, .mov, h.264)
