5 reasons to support Versogramas

5 reasons to support Versogramas. You won’t believe the fifth.

5 reasons to support Versogramas

1- Brag about supporting a type of culture that almost no one knows. (Hipsterize yourself).
When Versogramas succeeds in turning videopoetry mainstream, you will be able to disnow it, which will place you in a superior cultural status.

2.-Be part of a select team
Únete a un elenco de lujo donde se codean cineastas, poetas, músicos y creadores de todo pelaje. En el preestreno no dudaremos en hacerte sentir parte del equipo, para envidia de tus amigos culturetas. Join a select team which brings together poets, musicians, and artists of all kinds. We will make you feel part of the team at the preview. That will have your friends green with envy.

3.-Make history
Versogramas is the world’s first documentary on videopoetry. We will include you in the credtis of a pioneer, unique documentary. Show off as much as you wish.

4- Invite your friends to watch a DVD/bluray that they surely won’t have in their collection.
Meet your friends to watch our exclusive DVD/bluray. We garantee you that it would be impossible that any of your friends have it, so they won’t bother you with the typical “We’ve already seen that one!”. Besides, if you bring the numbered edition with you, you can boast about it, as no more copies will be edited ever.

5.-Avoid spending your money on worse stuff
Spending money in culture is much better than doing it on drinks, cigarettes, clothes you won’t wear, a gym you won’t attend, tatoos that you will probably hate in the future… Invest on something safe that won’t be a cause of remorse.

Join Versogramas!

HAPPY “GALICIAN LITERATURE DAY”!

What do Yolanda Castaño, Antón Reixa, Miriam Reyes, Cristina Ferreiro, Eduardo Estévez, Branca Novoneyra, Xabier Xardón or Esther Carrodeguas have in common? Did they wrote with pens from the same brand? Do they have a similar hair colour?

No! All of them are Galician poets whose videopoems will be included in Versogramas! We can’t think of a better way to celebrate the Galician Literature Day, as well as honoring Carlos Casares (this years’ honoree). Let’s celebrate also great living poets who mix word, image and sound.

So today we celebrate literature and we also celebrate that we already have more than 4.000€! Remember some rewards are running out, such as participating in a collective videopoem and getting a discount ticket to the preview.

Also, don’t miss the opportunity of receiving an online multimedia recital to enjoy wherever you want. And be sure you get one of the copies from the numbered edition of Juan Lesta and Belén Montero’s videopoems.

There are few days left until the campaign is over, and it’s crucial that you help us spread the word. For two reasons: so that we can make Versogramas a reality, and so that you can receive the reward you ordered! 😉

By the way: in the 2nd day of shooting we interviewed Eduardo Yagüe, Dionisio Cañas and Miriam Reyes. Eduardo said these beautiful words about us and brought Swedish candies to the team. Conversations with them were as delicious as the candies. Such beautiful moments Veresogramas is giving us!!

Day 1 – We’re shooting!

Day one of shooting is over. Versogramas, the first documentary on the international videopoetry scene has already started shooting.

We interviewed Kònic, Rosa Sánchez and Alain Baumann, artists specialized in interactive creations where word, image and sound play a key role .

From Belgium came Marc Neys, such a referent in the international videopoetry scene, with almost 300 videopoems created an a huge passion for his work. He collaborates with plenty of videopoets, teaches videopoetry workshops, he’s a jury at some festivals and has received lots of prizes himself.

Hernán Talavera came from Albacete with handful of references and reflections upon his creative process when elaborating a videopoem. He has a long and award-winning experience in the genre, which he faces from a painter point of view.

The last interviewd of the day was Eugeni Bonet, the father of Spanish videoart, a living piece of history. He explained us how he works with poetry in his pieces.
