Demian’s Video Samples

“Araya’s Place” - documentary
“Araya’s Place” - Documentary
This video is a 21-minute documentary which I produced from clips I made periodically from September 2011-to-June 2013. The movie features Araya Pudpard, the creator of a successful Seattle, Thai restaurant — which opened in 1987 — and her reasons for changing it to vegan food in 1991. In the movie, Araya demonstrates two recipes, revealing the culinary secrets which helped make her food famous.

“Timeless Wisdom: Being the Knowing” - Educational, Excerpt

Ven. Thubten Chodron and Ven. Ajahn Amaro discuss Buddhist meditation and philosophy. They also relate how they, as westerners, found their way to Buddhism and monastic life. Both Ven. Chodron and Ven. Amaro are heads of their own monasteries, have lectured and taught around the world, and have published many books. The full version of this 10-minute excerpt is available on a DVD entitled “Timeless Wisdom: Being the Knowing.”

“T’ai Chi Chuan with Master T.T. Liang” - Educational, Excerpt

This documentary contains an interview with Master Liang and his performance of 5 T’ai Chi dances. The first is his 150 posture form. Then there are two sword dances, and two are two-person dances with his assistant, Alice Crooks.

Master Liang lived and taught in the U.S. about 30 years. Demian was a student of his in the early 70s. For more information, please see: “T’ai Chi Chuan with Master T.T. Liang”

“Director’s Commentary” - Comedy, Excerpt

“Water Main Leak” - Documentary

An actual “water feature” bubbled up in front of my house. The Seattle Water Department crew did a great job locating and fixing the leak, and my basement is all the drier for it. This documentary was shot on December 3, 2011, edited on January 5, 2012, and runs 4:20 (a good deal less time than to actually dig, fix a water main, and fill a 6-foot deep trench).

“Jake Lockett - boxing” - Promo for Actor

Jake Lockett performs some shadow boxing and high kicks against a Thai jungle background. O.K., a photo of a Thai jungle, keyed over a green screen. I shot and edited the video. This 17-second video was shot in Seattle on August 8, 2010.

“Orphée” - Documentary of a Play

Jean Cocteau’s short stage play, “Orphée,” was directed by me in 1965. This 3-minute video was created in 2009 from stills I shot during rehearsal. More information on this production may be seen here: “Orphée”

“Floating Camera” - Movie Technique Demo

Here is a 5-minute demo reel of my shots, from various projects, that were made to move the camera in the style of a truck, pan, tilt, dolly, or combination that would complete other complex movements. In these clips, the camera was fastened to a pole, teeter-totter, boat, gimbal-based devices, wheel chair, tripod (used like a gimbal), and a crane. The primary purpose of these shots was to change the perspective and the relationship of subject-to-surroundings, in order to create visual surprise and greater audience involvement.

“The Silent One” - Movie Promo

A sword and sorcery, horror video scripted and directed by Ray Woodall. I shot the nature clips. I edited four promo versions — varying in length from 1.5-to-20 minutes — in 2000.
