Glissement (2012)

Glissement (2012) from Daniel H. Dugas on Vimeo.

My uncle Camille was a gifted organist, photographer and a very private man. When he died, his photographs and slides were distributed to family members, but there was little context for the material. I received images of Madrid, Rome and Paris. While most of them had a touristic quality, others were more personal. I noticed that some of the colors were starting to fade away. His past, that no one could explain, was slowly disappearing. Soon there would be nothing left.
I started to superimpose the images. Doubling them up gave hope that memories embedded there would gather new strength.
Camille Melanson (1917-2003) – My uncle, a priest, was granted permission to pursue doctoral studies in Paris by his church, in the early 1960’s. After 4 years, when it was time to finalize his thesis, his congregation decided that they could no longer pay his way. Faced with a demand to return to his small parish in Canada, Camille decided to leave the priesthood and moved to Montréal to rebuild his life. After a few years he bought a small house. He had the chance to purchase the massive organ from the Parc Jarry and installed it in his basement. This organ had been played during the Montréal Expos home games and it became one of the many keyboards that he owned. At the time of his death, the organ was sold with the house, as it was impossible to remove.

Évanescence (2012)

Évanescence (2012) from Daniel H. Dugas on Vimeo.

Evanescencia (2012) version espagnol from Daniel H. Dugas on Vimeo.

Quelle est cette épouvante, cette épouvantable époque d’évanescence dans laquelle nous vivons ? Tout s’efface rapidement, brusquement. Ce qui s’était posé devant le regard avec tant d’effervescence s’est enfui presque instantanément, a disparu en nous touchant.

Insomnia (2012)

insomnia – Italian subtitles (2012) from Daniel H. Dugas on Vimeo.

Insomnie – English subtitles (2012) from Daniel H. Dugas on Vimeo.

A television show on the Big Bang theory adds to the anguish of not being able to sleep. What would happen to dreaming if time itself disappeared?

Une émission de télévision sur la théorie du Big Bang vient ajouter à l’angoisse de ne pas pouvoir dormir. Qu’arriverait-il au sommeil si le temps lui-même disparaissait ?

Liberated Words Festival (2014)

liberated-words-pics

I am happy be in such good company as was shown at this year’s Liberated Words Festival!

————————————————————————————–

CONGRATULATIONS! To everyone who took part in Liberated Words festival and our competition finalists. The winners were:

Best Music/Sound – judges Rich Ferguson and Mark Wilkinson
1st Proem: to Brooklyn Bridge by Suzie Hanna and Tom Simmons
2nd In droplets by Lorenzo Scacchia
3rd If grief were briefly to disappear by Marc Neys, Stevie Ronnie and Nic Sebastian

‘We made our assessment based on the effectiveness and aesthetic quality of the piece as a whole. Some factors we considered were:
Was the spoken word moving intellectually or emotionally?
Did the visuals enhance or elucidate the meaning of poem?
Did the images evolve over time, thereby increasing the ideas communicated?

Were the images thoughtfully produced and carefully considered?
Did the sound design enhance or distract from the spoken word?
Regarding the winning piece: We found the visual treatment in Proem to be arresting and original; clear in its intentions and unified in its design as it evolved visually throughout the piece. A balanced and elegant pairing of spoken words and moving pictures.’
————————————————————————————–

Best Editing: Judges poet Helen Moore and filmmaker Howard Vause
1st On A Prophet, Kathleen Roberts and Dave Richardson
2nd Proem: to Brooklyn Bridge, Suzie Hanna and Tom Simmons
3rd Standard of Truth, Daniel H. Dugas

‘Helen and I agreed that the editing of On a Prophet had both simplicity and emotional complexity, was truly compelling and that all it’s elements formed a stunningly integrated whole. Proem is an animation tour de force – in a class of it’s own really – and we both loved Standard of Truth for it’s quirkiness and narrative restraint.’

Standard de vérité (2014)

Standard de vérité / Standard of Truth has been included in this year’s Liberated Words Festival.
It will be screened on September 13th at the BRISTOL 2014 FESTIVAL.
http://liberatedwords.com

STANDARD-TRUTH-wp

Excerpt: Children do not have any archives, they are born free. They do not have to worry about all of those boxes of paper stating this or that truth, they do not have to pay storage fees, or check the levels of relative humidity in the vaults. The past has not yet arrived. They have nothing else than life ahead of them. The meaning that flows in their veins is not saturated with antibodies; they are made of oxygen. Maybe that is why they have big smiles.

 

Here are the people who will be having their films on the theme of ‘Memory’ screened in Liberated Words on 13th September as part of the Bristol Poetry Festival. It’s a great line up. Patrice Etienne, Hala Georges, David Richardson, Tamsin Taylor, Sheila Packa , Edward Kulemin, Chaucer Cameron, Susanne Wiegner, Keith Sargent, Robert Peake, John Scott, Marc NeysMatt MullinsDaniel Dugas, Suzie Hanna, Don Carey, Rhianna Edwards, Trama Afona, Kate Sweeney, Diana Taylor, Meriel Lland, Irina Nedelcu, Antonio Alvarado, Helen Dewbery. for ticket information please follow the link below.

Si l’argent est le symbole… (2014)

If money is the symbol of trust, poverty is the state of distrust

This series of two videos: Fire and Daylight, looks at the world through the transparent windows on banknotes. Transparency has become democracy’s latest value, a panacea for every malaise. But what is this openness all about? Is this a window that we look through, or is it a screen where we project our dreams? Is transparency the state preceding invisibility

ifmoney-daylight1-wp

Si l’argent est le symbole de la confiance, la pauvreté est l’état de la méfiance, est une série de deux vidéos : Feu et Lumière du jour. La vidéo utilise les fenêtres dans les billets de banque comme des périscopes pour observer le monde.

La transparence est devenue une des caractéristiques fondamentales des sociétés modernes. Elle semble être la panacée à tous les malaises. Mais quelle est la nature de cette limpidité ? Est-ce que c’est une fenêtre qui nous permet de voir l’avenir, ou est-ce un écran où nous projetons nos rêves ? Est que cette transparence est l’état qui précède l’invisibilité ?
