On closing-up

click for video: Quicktime / .m4v for Iphone/ipod/ipad / flash / Direct streaming for PC

" The close-up has no equivalent in a narrative fashioned of words. Literature is totally lacking in any working method to enable it to isolate a single vastly enlarged detail in which one face comes forward to underline a state of mind or stress the importance of a single detail in comparison with the rest. As a narrative device, the ability to vary the distance between the camera and the object may be a small thing indeed, but it makes for a notable difference between cinema and oral or written narrative, in which the distance between language and image is always the same."

Season Greetings with a quote from Calvino: with everybody apparently busy on facebook or elsewhere, Sam Renseiw (still) keeps on voodling short voodles to be posted on his antiquated blog. Thank you for watching to those of you still hanging around: very much obliged and grateful: click here on the image or the links above.

slight misunderstanding:
kres5jik (?) left a link to some fine soundtracks.

unfortunately, i deleted the comment, thinking that it was some sort of spam, before checking the link.

the soundtracks on the link are now gone.

Sorry, Sam, for any confusion. Here's the link again: hopefully you can access the audio ok. If you have any problems email

Please don't feel obliged to use any of the audio, but do help yourself if it can be of use to you.

All the best
