• My Introduction

    211 views 2 years ago
    Welcome to my world. Well, you can see more about me on two sites: http://about.me/stephen_jac... and http://stephenjacks58.wix.c.... Bbut meanwhile, I hope you'll explore and enjoy my channel here, whose original content went a little into decline after a long-term injury to my shooting and editing arm. Now that it's recovered, fragrant new plans are being mooted as we speak...

    To see my own stuff, click on the section marked "Steve's Films". This includes my poetry and occasional broadcasts or essays. I want to reshoot these in a much more creative exciting way, although the words will remains roughly the same.

    To enjoy gorgeous music in world-class performances, click on "Steve's Serious Playlist". To be inspired by extraordinary short films by other people, have a gander at "Cream of You Tube."

    New subscribers to this Channel are ALWAYS welcome. Nothing's expected of you: you'll never be nagged or harassed or spammed: there's not a penny to pay. So, why not? Show less

  • Cream of YouTube: Steve's favourite creative short films Play all

    There are so many fine videos that aren't on You Tube at all (think of Vimeo, for instance). But here are a few that are to hand, and that have inspired me or given me joy - not excerpts, not documentaries or cute kittens or hideous kiddies falling off their bikes, but creative videos in their own right.

    The creative short film is just as much a specialism, a discipline and an art form as the short story. Just as Katherine Mansfield's "Bliss" is not "War and Peace" after a thousand Reader's Digest edits, so a short film is not "Gone with the Wind" on a bargain budget or on film stock that will run out after two minutes. Short film needs to be a way of making a beguiling or moving or trenchant point that could not be made so well, any other way.

    Look, browse, have fun and learn - as I have done. I won't even try to single out favourites; but if you watch SEBASTIAN'S VOODOO, you'll see what I mean.
