This is a test short. I was working with a few different ideas separately that came together, seemingly on its own accord. Shot on an iPhone, and using some innovations in technology and editing software. At the heart is the soul of the human. The concept is of a man who appears to be in a dream, going deep into the realm of the unconscious mind, a deep reservoir of symbols and metaphors, a journey not for the faint of heart. The man moves towards the eye, perhaps the window to the soul. This is a portal that he must go through. Once crossed the plot takes a twist and the man is chased by a wooden mouse, who represents the irrational, and unknown. The mind plays all sorts of tricks. Soundscape is an ongoing experiment, using sound recordings, including an accordion, and using GarageBand to bring it all together. There is no intro titles, or credits. It is produced. directed and shot by hälts. Please leave any comments, questions, revelations, dreams or concerns, and hälts will reply when possible. Thank you for watching
In kind regards hälts

First off just want to honour the women of Earth and Mother Earth, thank you💚🌿 (hälts mural ‘creator’ there’s a paradise in my mind and the cosmos in my hand)
The road less travelled opens one to possiblilities that can be fruitful. However there is also a chance for chaos, uncertainty and doubt. Knowing this be mindful that there have been ones before, mavericks, rogues, lone wolves…learn about them, read about them, watch documentaries if that’s useful to you. Keep in mind though that no one’s path is the same path, it is a complex weave and you are one strand in that weave. This metaphor is useful to visualize, how do you want to weave your thread, how do want to add to the pattern, or what pattern are you going to follow, there is no right question, no right answer, there is only you on that path. Trust you can do it, be discerning of advice, that’s wisdom, you’ll get it, educate yourself, and remember life’s problems are not so much problems as they are experience, they teach us things that we can learn from, sometimes they repeat themselves, and can be unpleasant, you’ll get through it, and hopefully so will this weirdo, hälts💚🌿📿☕️

Welcome to another hälts minimotion picture show, after a bit of a hiatus hälts has returned to do his signing ritual, completing another mural project, full circle. To all the lovelies that made it such a wonderful experience hälts thanks you from the depths of his being. The mural is called ‘creator’ and is located at Calgary New Age in Kensington, this video is just a preview of what’s to come, so please stay tuned. Peace be with us all.
‘hälts signs his mural’ (featuring the signing of the hälts ‘creator’ mural, song title ‘paid in full’ courtesy the artist)
Thats right folks hälts has been at it agan, following a disastrous couple weeks of computer crashes and some plain old life stuff hälts has against all odds managed to persevere and create a wonderful little gem of a minimotion picture show featuring his latest mural called ‘Creator’. Over the course of the mural prodction hälts gathered document after document and created this timelapse/animated motion picture beauty that takes you on a journey, offering an inside look at hälts the artist in flow. The music was made by gathering samples via his trusty iPad and Garageband which is without a doubt the sound of hälts and a track called ‘the Galaxy’. Albeit hälts works on a real shoestring budget his hope is to further this concept and eventually make a high quality movie with all the bells and whistles, until than enjoy my friends and carry on. Anyone interesed in helping fulfill hälts dream please email him at email@example.com. First a word from Kurt.
and now the hältsART feature presentation,’the Creator mural’ minimotion picture show with sound, enjoy!
Thank you. Mahalo. Gracias. Merci.
This is a friendly reminder to be resourceful and let the imagination run wild.
Brand new miniMOTION picture show featuring the art & sounds of hälts
✒️🎥🎼🌀Mahaloness and halts teamed up to produce this experimental super short called ‘mind travel’ it is the second in an ongoing project where halts combines his 2D art with modern technology and sound, analog to digital, or something along those lines. The images were first drawn in a tiny book and than photographed for stop animation with some post editing. The music is a collection of sounds formed into a soundtrack, these sounds are from the halts archives and produced using Garageband. This is a resourceful imaginative operation at this stage in the game, I am working on new material, more to come, enjoy!
I found an opportunity to make you a little mini motion picture show, I hope you enjoy.
