A Requiem

Here's a short film (still pics.) I made, dedicated to soldiers all over the world. It's based on my poem Requiem. The background score is pretty awesome. So I recommend watching it with headphones / a good sound system. And ofcourse, watch it on 'fullscreen' mode.

    1. I have given the credits at the end of the video. Those lines you were reading were from my poem.

    1. The background score is composed by Clint Mansell . Its quite popular by the name "requiem for a dream" soundtrack. I've used two versions of the composition, one being the original and the other being the "Electric Violin" version by an awesome violinist named Kate Chruscicka.

      Watch I made something recently @ http://anupampatracontemplates.blogspot.in/2012/08/poetry-in-motion.html . It's called "In Lord's Light" based on my poem "In Lord's Light".

      Thanks again Jayadev
