Round n Round

Movie number 27 for Randt & Hoisan is our holiday offering for all our little group of friends and fans who enjoy our machinimas. If this one makes you happy (that is our hope) please feel free to share it. This is a Steampunk mother-daughter feel good movie inspired and powered by the most amazing kalimba piece, SaReGaMa’s Kalimba Solo para Lotus. It takes place in a lushly decorated Steampunk set, beautifully furnished an refurbished (The elevator was made from scratch) by Nat and her excellent set design. She also is my sweet-bratty little daughter “Natskies” who besides being adorable is a formidable bossy Director as always hehe)
I wrote the poem, inspired by the hypnotic music and almost a year later, we are finally witnessing its’ birth. I have to confess I do love this baby a lot..It is such a different project for us, and yet I hope you will agree, we did pull it off..
Full screen is best and HD or Natskies might thumb her nose at you:) Comments and Likes on YouTube always welcome..
Happy Holidays!!

    Loved it! The music, lyrics everything is so different and somehow addictive. It just keeps you in a trance.
    Congratulations! 😊

    • Thank you so much Nahid.. Yes! When I first heard this music, I felt like I was hypnotized and the poem flowed out of me, like a crazy speeded -up, channeled automatic writing moment. We both had so much fun making this movie and are very thrilled that people are enjoying it because that is why we make them:) Thanks again for visiting my blog!

    Love this one! Story and voice, words and set and camerawork and all

    This feels like the introduction to a Steampunk feature film. Is she raising the child to be a superhero, a supervillain? Has she made a time-machine to go back, and now we see her raising herself?

    Round and round!

    Karima and Nat…
    You’ve done it again and your collaboration only gets better. This is brilliant! I love the poem, music and set. I’m amazed with you ability to collect all those different scenes, and fuse in the characters, words and music to create a symbiotic masterpiece. Great work!

    Loved this one sis – everything about it is wonderful, and I was left with a feeling that in the end, no matter where we are on our journey through life, there is that insistent bouncy little rhythm reminding us of the wonder all around us.

    Thank you xx

    • Aww thanks Sis! It was a fun one to make too, and so glad it uplifted you. Yes it’s amazing how many things go round and round from the microcosm to the macrocosm….and everything in between. That wonderful kalimba piece made me think about it all:):) HUGS
