Fresh Meet International Film Festival 2017 - Accepted.
“His conviction of having no purpose in life other than to act as a distillation of poison was part of the ego of an eighteen-year-old. He had resolved that his beautiful white hands would never be soiled or calloused. He wanted to be like a pennant, dependent on each gusting wind. The only thing that seemed valid to him was to live for the emotions--gratuitous and unstable, dying only to quicken again, dwindling and flaring without direction or purpose.” - Yukio Mishima, Spring Snow

A note from videographer Bill Stratford:
Last year I was contacted by New York based singer/song writer Martin Del Carpio.
He had been looking at my Instagram and was intrigued by my style, as I was his.
Within days I was asked if I would like to make a music video for him, without hesitation it was a YES.
I was given a few tracks to listen too, and one caught my attention. Spring Snow.
For some of you who know me, and I mean really know me, they will tell you that this track was made for me.
Sometimes a gem comes out of the dark and this is my gem.
So I give you Spring Snow by Martin Del Carpio & directed by Bill Stratford.

don't let it slip from your hands
don't let it fall to the ground
catch it with your tongue
grab it before it's gone
