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.
We’re completely open to suggestions for the series – if you have a favorite short poem, or you have a particular drink or dish you’d like to see broken down to a poem, hit us up on Facebook and share.
