Dead Poet Series: Spring is Like a Perhaps Hand

Food Stylings Photography Work

We’re really excited to introduce “Spring is like a Perhaps Hand,” the first installment of a new project called the Dead Poets Series – short films about drinks and food inspired by poetry.

Brace yourself: This isn’t your goat-boy-galloping-down-the-lane-piping-a-piccolo-and-waking-the-daffodils video. Following the rhythm of E.E. Cummings’ “Spring is like a perhaps hand,” this short piece is a dark, creepy cocktail creation with allusions to a leather-booked study setting. The project is marked with interesting camera angles, fixed rigs, and sharp sound design. Put on your Vincent Price lenses and enjoy.
