LIFE will premiere on May 5th at 7:00 pm at Whitsell Auditorium, in the Portland Art Museum.  The fourth installment of the Poetry In Pictures Series, based on Edith Wharton’s 1894 poem “Life,” delves into the idea that the choices we make ultimately shape our lives.

Juxtaposing Wharton’s poetic musings, an improvisational score and an array of fantastical images including a ceaselessly transforming sculpture as well as photographs, paintings, charcoal drawings and live footage, the short film celebrates art’s power and presents a vivid reminder of the need to make the most of our years and days.

Dig Recording is a fabulous recording studio in downtown Portland.  On Monday, September 13th, the Rodwan Productions team met up with actress Cheri Stuller at the studio to record the voice over for Life.  The atmosphere is relaxing, with dim lighting and comfortable furnishing. The owner, Mark Kaeder, was welcoming with his professional manner and sly sense of humor.   In an hour we recorded 17 takes of the poem.  The big task ahead of me now is choosing which one to use.  Cheri worked hard on this project and really dove into the poem.   There are so many good takes from our session at Dig Recording.  Each one with its subtle differences but all fitting for the visuals.  Cheri’s dedication and talent are a true asset to the film.
