        Words / Mat Lloyd www.matlloyd.com Animation / Matt Frodsham www.mattfrodsham.com Follow up to the award winning 'Blokes'. A mixture of hand rotoscoped and 3D elements created in Photoshop, Cinema 4D, After Effects & the odd scrap of paper. A bit about the poem from Mat Lloyd: "I wrote the poem on a canvas with a marker pen the morning after I was attacked. The night before I was in my local park on the opening day of the skate park I'd helped get built, it was nearly midnight. We'd organised a DJ to play the day out in a marquee and I just popped out to take a leak. In my drunken state I was stumbling to find a bush when I heard, and felt, a sort of 'boink' sound. I knew I'd been hit on the back of the head, and I knew it wasn't with a fist. I don't remember much else other than being back at the marquee with a bleeding head. I was very lucky as a number of my friends and other revelers had spotted me being kicked on the floor and ran over to drag me out. For that I am very grateful. Living near London, the poem has never been retired and still appears in my performance sets. With youth violence seemingly growing year on year, the poem is as relevant now as it was when I wrote it. People blame hip hop culture, movies, video games, parents, the education system, unemployment, the list goes on. I don't have the answer. The saddest thing about "2 Inches to the Right" is all to often, someone from the crowd comes to speak to me after I leave the stage and tells me of their friend who died in a similar situation. The poem gives them hope that some may listen, and think twice." - Mat Lloyd If anyone has any additional platforms this could be broadcast from to reach more people and hopefully make them think twice get in touch mattfrodsham@gmail.com Check out the project blog for in depth production notes and screens: http://mattfrodshamfmp.blogspot.com/ View Blokes here: http://www.vimeo.com/4802223

          Garry made this music piece of a poem by Pablo Neruda, performed by Hektor Thillet. The video is made at the Costa Brava. Beaches: Castell, Sa Fosca (near Palamos), Cala Giverola, Tossa de Mar and Blanes. If you want to hear more of Garry's music, please visit http://soundcloud.com/garry-b Me Gusta Cuando Callas - I Like For You To Be Still 
Written by Pablo Neruda /Performed by Hektor Thillet ( Hektor Thillet / CC BY-NC 3.0) Words in english: 

I like for you to be still 
It is as though you are absent And you hear me from far away 
And my voice does not touch you
 It seems as though your eyes had flown away 
And it seems that a kiss had sealed your mouth 
As all things are filled with my soul
 You emerge from the things 
Filled with my soul
 You are like my soul
 A butterfly of dream
 And you are like the word: Melancholy 

I like for you to be still
 And you seem far away
 It sounds as though you are lamenting
 A butterfly cooing like a dove
 And you hear me from far away 
And my voice does not reach you 
Let me come to be still in your silence
 And let me talk to you with your silence 
That is bright as a lamp
 Simple, as a ring
 You are like the night
 With its stillness and constellations
 Your silence is that of a star 
As remote and candid 

I like for you to be still
 It is as though you are absent
 Distant and full of sorrow
 So you would have died
 One word then, One smile is enough
 And I am happy; 
Happy that it’s not true
