first objective reached

We want to reach 8.500€ to make Versogramas amazing. With that extra money, we can fill the set with amazing attrezzo so that the transition scenes look even better: dried leaves, stones, books, leds, boxes, crazy stuff… Besides, we can hire more people to help us with the logistics. We really need more helping hands! Could you please help us achieve that?

Also, we want to add a new reward: a picnic+informal outdoors screening of the documentary. Have dinner with the team while you watch the documentary, for 50€! Don’t miss it!

As a way to say thanks to all the patrons that have already supported, we will give you an extra reward! Online access to exclusive material from the documentary: making off, cut scenes, full interviews…

Let’s keep moving forward! Please share vkm.is/versogramas and collaborate in this fantastic project!

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.

An early trial – Víctor M Mozo & DSK

Today the videopoem of the week is special. After its journey through festivals, today we are happy to present the online premiere of “An early trial”, a documentary-videopoem directed by DSK(Belén Montero and Juan Lesta) about the poet Víctor M Mozo.

“An early trial” was screened at Mostra de Cinema Periférico S8 (A Coruña, 2015) and was finalist for best experimental film at CREA awards (Proffesional Association of Directors from Galicia, Santiago de Compostela 2016). It had its international premiere at ACRE TV (Illinois, Chicago 2016), a TV channel exclusively devoted to video art, created thanks to the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

A man, a place, one decision, the story. One poet and his poetry. A Víctor M Mozo autobiography’s reflection coded as a videopoetry, through the four seasons. The film shows flora and fauna of lands linked with his family and his past.” 

So starts the introduction to this early trial shot by Juan Lesta and Belén Montero. The sensitivity of both directors, along with the music of David Rivas Domínguez, plunge us in a dance of sensations, where reflections about time, image, writing, memory, dreams, landscape and childhood flow in sync with the poems of Víctor M Mozo. The poet appears on stage embodying the effect that his own words cause into him, reciting and pondering over his texts. The carefully designed aesthetics of images and the inspiring soundtrack give the poem a delicate and sensorial atmosphere.

This isn’t Belén Montero and Juan Lesta’s first incursion into videopoetry. Together they have created videopoems for other poets, commissions for museums and collaborative projects. Their last works on videopoetry can be seen here. They are currently in charge of Versogramas, what will be the world’s first documentary on the international videopoetry scene.

Remember that, if you can’t assist but want to support the project anyway, there are two things you can do:

  1. Contribute with your pledge, if you haven’t done it already, to get one of the original rewards we offer.
  2. Share the link vkm.is/versogramas among your friends. The more we share the project, the easiest we will reach the goal.

After the first week of campaign we reached more than 30% of our objective, but we still need your collaboration to make Versogramas a reality.

Thanks a lot!
