Cinematic Haikus

Dark Elf Films is in the process of filming its first Cinematic Haiku, which is a creative approach to capturing various genres on film. In literature, a Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry made of three lines, in which the first line contains five syllables, the second contains seven and the third line contains five again.

In the Dark Elf Cinematic Haiku, there are are three main genres: Hard Romance, Serial Malice and Legends Retold; representing the three stanzas in a Haiku. Each genre has an allotted amount of short films in their category: Hard Romance has five shorts, Serial Malice has seven shorts and Legends Retold has five shorts.

The writer for this series is Frank Tobin, who is also the writer of Viva Humanity, Dark Elf's web series that will be launched by the end of this year.

Here is the Dark Elf Cinematic Haiku format:


Syllable 1: Uncomfortable Positions
Syllable 2: Uncomfortable Preferences
Syllable 3: Uncomfortable Practice
Syllable 4: Uncomfortable Propositions
Syllable 5: Uncomfortable Principles


Syllable 1: Degradation
Syllable 2: Geek
Syllable 3: Bond
Syllable 4: Manifestation
