Short teasers for the Video-Book format of
The Imagination Thief by Rohan Quine

Here below are links to a buffet of short-’n’-snackable video teasers, some of them less than a minute long, excerpted from The Imagination Thief’s video-book format.

 

The Imagination Thief by Rohan Quine is about a web of secrets, triggered by the stealing and copying of people’s imaginations and memories. It’s about the magic that can be conjured up by images of people, in imagination or on film; the split between beauty and happiness in the world; and the allure of various kinds of power. It celebrates some of the most extreme possibilities of human imagination, personality and language, exploring the darkest and brightest flavours of beauty living in our minds.
