European and Belarusian premiere of The Songs of Old Europe – Ancient Belarusian Folk Songs documentary November 5, 2016
Huge thanks to our audience at the Belarusian and European Premiere of our film that was held at the off-competition Belarusian Showcase during 23-rd International Film Festival LISTAPAD featuring ethno-folk group GUDA performing ancient songs life! We create films for you, and if there is no one to watch them, they become meaningless. Thank you!
Also huge thanks to the committee of the festival for including us in the showcase, Mikalai Laureniuk for organization, our brave Belarusian field producers, Viktoriya Mikhno and Siarhei Douhushau for presenting the film, and to each and every person who helped creating our film.
Congratulations to the talented Clare McKay! Here are some author's portraits we did for her book "Laramie Moon" that will be published this fall, couldn't be happier for her.

Each one of these images of gorgeous Olga could be on "Goldberry" single's cover, but lab didn't process film in time. On other hand, Polaroids that we used have chic of their own.

I almost forgot that quite a few years ago I participated in "Man With a Movie Camera: The Global Remake" Perry Bard's project. "Человек с киноаппаратом" (Man With a Movie Camera) originally was shot by soviet director Dziga Vertov in 1929. I submitted footage of the disappearing bottles (around 00:57:10) to dziga.perrybard.net and... completely forgot about it! Here is great reminder of what and why I do what I do:
Песня пра Амерыку ў выкананні Яскевіч Алены Дзянісаўны.
Song about America by Yaskevich Alena.
...as well as 5 other pieces of "Lyrics" chapter. Five more to go, and color-correction, sound-design, folly to apply. Little by little :)
Завершаны кавалак пра русалак у чарнавым варыянце, а з ім i пять кавалкаў вялікага раздзела "Тэксты".
Meet our lovely mermaids / Пазнаёмцеся з нашымі русалкамі
It is not clear how there was no accidents by the time we reached the location: all people (drivers and passengers regardless of gender) were paying much more attention to four blonds in small Cherry car passing by than to the road.
Выратаванне русалкі. Дагэтуль незразумела, як на кальцавой не адбылося ніводнага ДТЗ - ніводны ж чалавек за дарогай не сачыў! А і хто ж дурны на дарогу глядзець, калі побач чатыры бландынкі едуць?
