Hydra 2015 - Videos

Postby Goldin » Wed Jun 24, 2015 11:41 am

I wasn't supposed to film the concert in Hydra Port: just most of the Forum members' performances (all of them, if I'm lucky - which is, by the way, a lot) - but I didn't think about that at all; that was a time when you don't think much.
I wanted to sit somewhere, as closer to the sea as possible. Rather soon I realized that I'm standing and I'm going to stand during the whole concert.
As I can't stand patiently without doing anything, I started filming.

That's almost the complete concert: several poems recitated by Matina Douskou in Greek are missed.

Thank you for watching these shaky and blurry videos.

Greg's recitation of You Are Right, Sahara in Maori starts a bit later, so a few lines are missed... Luckily, the complete recording has appeared at his own channel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AC22sKkoA-Q

Today I've started uploading videos from the improvisational concert at Melina Mercouri Gallery (June 15).

Later I'll try to select something that is not too noisy from the numerous dark Roloi recordings: guess, I'll find several songs...

Thank you so much, Roman - you're a star! Your photos and videos are beautiful, and very atmospheric.

It was very inspiring (not just because of a beautiful surrounding)!

After the concerts - to Roloi!

This video is hidden from search engines. And several latest uploads (including famous Henning's "it's four in the morning" at four in the morning) will be facebook-exclusives.
Consider this a promotion of my facebook account ;-)

I hope, this will help to preserve the mystery and intimacy of that moments, at least, a little bit.

Roman,
I love all your 'shaky and blurry' videos! Thank you for taking them and bringing them to us.

Warmest regards,
Mary

Roman, I've just watched the 27 concert videos plus "to the Roloi!" one and as I couldn't be there as I had planned, I want to say thank you for giving me the flavour of the night! There were a lot of people there and they seemed very attentive to the show.

I just have to say I love your "roving eye" camera work. That grey cat was in quite a few videos and seemed to totally enjoy the night and wasn't at all about to run away. I see he/she brought a few friends to enjoy the show in one of the videos! I loved the shots of the harbour, sea and nearby boat - the words of the song at the time of the latter two were serendipitous or just good timing on your behalf ;-) In another one I really liked the image of that young boy sitting against the lamppost listening to a song.

I hope you found time to enjoy yourself without your video camera :) Thank you for all your time and effort!

Thank you, Mary! Thank you, Bev!

Yes! I did enjoy my time on Hydra! It was certainly one of the happiest weeks in my life. By its intensive flow of feelings and emotions it makes me remember happy summer months I've spent in a village being a child, or even that time you're mutually falling in love. Almost like that. Surely, not because of the place itself (which is great), but thanks to the fellowship.

Meanwhile, this morning I've finished uploading selected Roloi videos to my facebook profile (they are shared with my friends there, so feel free to find me, if you're interested).

If you don't like facebook at all, the same recordings are on youtube - but they are strictly private, so ask me for a direct link (please use e-mail button instead of private messages).

Thanks again for these videos, Roman! You also put a lot of fantastic photos on facebook - are you going to post them on the forum so that people not on facebook can see them?

Thanks so much,
Joy

Not being a 'facebooker', I would also love the opportunity to see them please.

Thanks, Joy - I wouldn't argue with you, because I believe that probably any photo taken on Hydra is fantastic :razz:
Yes, I have a plan how to make a selection of them available to everyone. Thanks for asking!

Of course they are all fantastic, but your photos are so atmospheric, Roman! Thank you!

So many thanks to Wybe for making the recording of all the Forum members' performances!
It's posted there: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=36049#p354539, but I'm trying to collect all the links in this thread, so:
http://www.icantforget.nl/Hydra2015tribute2.html (a 25-minute video compilation)

Finally we got proper quality recordings - from Joe Way's speech to the celebration of Jarkko.
