Walking

There are many songs about walking.  Here are three of my favorites.  In all three cases, the person is thinking about a loved one.


For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her - Simon and Garfunkel

In this song, the person is walking in the night, and finds his lover.  It's a dream, and he wakes up, close to her.



Kentucky Rain - Elvis Presley

In this song, his lover has left him.  He is searching for her, to find out why.  I wonder if he ever found her, or gave up his search.  Maybe he is still out there, walking in the rain.



Rainy Night in Georgia - Brook Benton

He is away from his lover, walking on a rainy night.  Where is she?  Why is he apart from her?

Through the Storm

Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.

The film tells the story of a young woman trying to bring her drowned husband back from the dead. For that, she'll face a Banshee and will go on a harrowing journey into the Otherworld.  It's a nice video for Halloween.



Fred Burdy wrote and directed the film, and led the 3D team in Windmill Lane. Irish actress Katie McGrath (Merlin, Dracula) voiced both characters. Sean McGrath produced the short film.

Bogeyman

Here's a good video for Halloween.  Beware of the Bogeyman!



From Flipbook Studio.  Aimed at showing our clients our creativity and production capabilities, this short and incredibly dark, animated, fairy tale centres on a modern re-imagining of the mythical bogeyman creature, that has in many cultures been used by adults to frighten children into obedience.

Mouse X

Here's another short science fiction movie.  "You are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike."  A man wakes up in a strange room.  As he explores, he finds all of the rooms are the same.  What is going on?

As I watched this short film, I thought, this could be what Hell is like.  I liked it.  (The film, not Hell.)
