Reap the land

Reap the land is a two minute experimental, poetic film which focuses on the land of the island, the woods and elements of water all on the Island of Raasay. From the calm and peaceful island, it felt so relaxing, that I wanted to capture this sharp mood. Indeed you could see beautiful landscapes, however I wanted to show how there was more to the layers through different angles and perspectives. Through the woods I wanted to capture the essence of how the whole land will the reaped – all the trees will soon disappear and be washed away. Hence, this is where the water came in, symbolising this idea of coming and going just like waves. It’s always there but never fixed in one place like a trees roots. Absorb it while it lasts.
