1. To see this talented calligrapher draw his poem’s letters along the undulating edge of the sea was quite moving and mesmerizing! The poem’s fleeting existence is part of what draws out intimate attention!

  2. The gorgeous photography combined with Rick’s beautiful calligraphy makes my heart feel full. So stunning!

  3. Wow! Just beautiful, Rick! Masterful!

  4. The depth and meaning of the words come to life as the waves smooth over the words on the sand. Such a lovely expression. So beautifully done.

  5. Beautiful and artistic. A reminder that all of life is but a whisper in time.

  6. So beautiful to watch the power of the sea married with the elegance of calligraphy on such a scale. As I was willing the water to miss the letters written in the sand, they were even more beautiful after the tide passed over and through them. Poetry in words, in letters and in the sea…Magic.

  7. This is an amazing short film. Beautifully done. LOVED IT!

  8. Full of grace – woven of words and nature.

  9. Rick Paulus is an extremely talented and gifted world class calligrapher and in his short film The Full Sea Rolls and Thunders shares his talent with the world.

  10. Who would not want to be buried at sea after watching this exquisite short!! I was so impressed!!

  11. Captivating, beautiful. Great adaptation, taking a text to a new medium so absolutely perfect. Poetry of the sea, by the sea, by the hand of one of our nation’s best calligraphers…who, opens himself up to us. To share that which resides in his heart, walking in harmony with, and sharing a love and passion, for the ocean.

  12. We like the way the use of the transient nature of the waves mimics that aspect of life and how it relates to the subject of the poem.

  13. Very beautiful. The film and music meld in such a way as to allow one to serenely float along in its wake.
    Well done Rick.
