Watch Music Video: Nineveh’s Burning from ‘Gilgamesh’- Michael Guinn

Directed by Lukasz Pytlik

This is a music video. The story is about how the tablets to the Epic of Gilgamesh were preserved by an act of war in 612 BCE in Nineveh. Nineveh is modern Mosul in Iraq, much in the news recently. The video shows the atrocity of war and at the same time hope in the form of culture– the preservation of humanity’s oldest story ‘The Epic of Gilgamesh’.

Watch Music Video: A Song of Pilot Whale Fog

Music video created, produced and filmed by Bonnie Carini of Hawaii Island Melody and Lyrics written by Bonnie Carini Melody sung by Sierra Spruce of Hawaii Island

Macrorhynchus4This is a music video that I created and produced for my movie project PILOT WHALE FOG, a story of two broken families, one from Hawaii and the other from the Faroe Islands where most of the story takes place, who are brought together by tragedy and music, but their cultural beliefs keep them in conflict until they are unified by a pilot whale.
I wrote the lyrics and melody and the footage I shot in Hawaii and the Faroe Islands. I used footage that would visually aid in the telling of the story in A SONG OF PILOT WHALE FOG. It is a piece, which celebrates Faroese and Hawaiian culture, the beauty of both archipelagos, and the pilot whales.

Saxophone tracks: Villu Veski of Estonia
Vocals: Sierra Spruce of Hawaii Island sings the melody and Eivor Pallsdottir of the Faroe Islands vocalizes with sax and pilot whale sounds in the prelude.
Hawaiian chant of the refrain: Mahina Saunders
Hula: Melody Reyes

Director Biography

Bonnie

I am a published writer/photographer with a background in marine ecology and have focused mostly on pelagic animals, from plankton to sharks, dolphins and whales. My articles and photographs have appeared in magazines and books around the world. I am also a produced cinematographer and have sold footage to Animal Planet, National Geographic, BBC and Nature, to list a few. I directed and shot the underwater segment for the original NBC documentary, The Road to Ironman. I have had one of my screenplays optioned, Pilot Whale Fog, which was chosen as an official finalist in; The International Family Film Festival 2014, The Cannes Screenplay Contest 2015 and The New York Screenplay Contest 2016. My music video, A Song of Pilot Whale Fog, won the Silver Lei Award at the 2017 Honolulu Film Awards.

Director Statement

The allure of whales and dolphins is strong and for decades battles have ensued globally against their slaughter and captivity. I first became aware of the grindadrap (pilot whale slaughter) in the Faroe Islands over 3 decades ago and it remained in the back of my mind up until about a decade ago when I read an article by the Canadian activist, Paul Watson, entitled; The Ferocious Faroe Islands. I’ve spent much of my life in and around sea observing and filming marine life and am especially fond of the pilot whales. I found the article though, derogatory to the point of being ineffective to ending the grindadrap. In fact, the Faroese are incensed at Paul Watson’s audacity and continue to whale as they have been doing for over a thousand years. My Faroese experience has, so far, evolved into a short documentary, a music video and an award-winning screenplay where the grindadrap is at the heart of the main conflict in the story, but is portrayed and dealt with fairly and considerately through multiple perspectives. My
PILOT WHALE FOG film/music project is a celebration of the Faroese and Hawaiian culture, the natural beauty of both archipelagos, and the pilot whales.
