Creative Soulmates

Creative Soulmates
For Natascha

Someone once asked me,
to tell them all about you.
They said, “Who she is?
What makes her so important to you?”
There really was no easy answer
as that reply would take time,
was more complicated, then I think
they even wanted to know.

How can we explain the synergy
that runs through us…?
the synergy that Is us?
That makes your visuals and my sounds
like a formula we can count on religiously,
as it has been known to work every single time
we start out on a new project together

Something is always born at the end
that parallel is never lost.
We are the creative lovers who combine
our minds, our ideas, and the gestation
can be smooth or hard or uncertain.
The labor can be drawn out,
fast and painless,
or so difficult we even start to worry,
if this birth will ever be here

But when we send out our announcement,
when we give it a little push
and send it to the world,
we are the glowing parents,
the proud mothers, the proud fathers,
beaming with satisfaction, we hold up our newborn
for the world to see,
“So proud to say we had another baby born today
You can view it on YouTube in HD”

One time we made a film about that..
How our minds couple and expand into one.
It was a meta look into our very own process
We are something rare and I cherish us,
because partners like us, are so hard to find:
Two people living no closer than across the sea,
never meeting, never speaking, talking in type,
sitting down in pixelated worlds in avatar bodies, virtually.

and for the last 8 years, making movie magic together.

My film partner, my creative soulmate, my perfect date…
Not sure I would ever make anything again..without you
Get well soon!

“The Connection” by Natascha Randt & Karima Hoisan

Alguien una vez me preguntó
para contarle todo sobre ti.
Dijeron: “¿Quién es ella?
¿Qué la hace tan importante para ti? “
Realmente no hubo una respuesta fácil
como esa respuesta tomaría tiempo,
fue más complicado, entonces creo que
incluso que quería saber.

¿Cómo podemos explicar la sinergia
que corre a través de nosotros…?
la sinergia que somos nosotros?
Eso hace que tus imágenes y mis sonidos
como una fórmula con la que podemos contar religiosamente,
como se sabe que funciona cada vez
comenzamos juntos en un nuevo proyecto.

Algo siempre nace al final
ese paralelo nunca se pierde.
Somos los amantes creativos que combinamos
nuestras mentes, nuestras ideas y la gestación
puede ser suave, duro o incierto.
El trabajo se puede alargar,
rápido e indoloro,
o tan difícil que incluso nos empezamos a preocupar,
si este nacimiento alguna vez estará aquí.

Pero cuando enviamos nuestro anuncio,
cuando le damos un empujoncito
y envíalo al mundo,
somos los padres brillantes,
las madres orgullosas, los padres orgullosos,
radiante de satisfacción, sostenemos a nuestro recién nacido
para que el mundo lo vea
“Estoy muy orgulloso de decir que hoy hemos nacido otro bebé
Puedes verlo en YouTube en HD ”

Una vez hicimos una película sobre eso …
Cómo nuestras mentes se acoplan y se expanden en una.
Fue un meta análisis de nuestro propio proceso
Somos algo raro y yo nos aprecio,
porque los socios como nosotros son muy difíciles de encontrar:
Dos personas que viven no más cerca que al otro lado del mar,
nunca reunirse, nunca hablar, hablar en tipo,
sentados en mundos pixelados en cuerpos avatar, virtualmente.
y durante los últimos 8 años, haciendo juntos la magia del cine.

Mi compañera de cine, mi alma gemela creativa, mi cita perfecta …
No estoy seguro de si volvería a hacer algo … sin ti
¡Mejorate pronto!

    👏🏽Loved it. The voices and the music and the pacing were fantastic. Watching it on my phone but I’m going to be plugging it into my laptop soon. “Daddy I’m scared” : am I reading a sarcastic tone? It’s going to be my mood of the day.

    Just so beautiful! I know how much this magical connection means to you both…. we get to see so many amazing creations, the results of two brilliant minds working together! We all send Nat the best of wishes for her health and vitality to return ready to fly again across the cyber highway… to delight and inspire us!


  7. Thanks so much Jan..You have been a great supporter of our videos, since we teamed up in 2012.
    Thank you so much for your loving thoughts and wishes for Natascha’s health.. You, know how important she is for me, how unique our relationship, who someone once said, could only come about in this time of virtuality and the internet, I know when she can, she will reply inshallah. You have given us inspiration over the years and have loyally stood by us through our successes and failures:) This really means so much to both of us..

  10. Karima, it’s wonderful when you’ve found a soulmate. That doesn’t happen that often in life and that’s why it’s something very, very special. You feel it immediately when you stand face to face with such a person, look at each other and understand each other immediately in just a few words. often this friendship lasts for a long time and sometimes for a lifetime.

    • Rosie,I extra especially love this comment, because, you are in Germany, as is also my creative partner, Natascha and you describe so well what that sometimes overused word, soulmates, can really do when you encounter him or her in front of you. Nat and I have this weird connection from the beginning where we almost think alike and at the same time. very rarely have we had a disagreement on how to work together and this is so amazing as she is German and I am Costa Rican! As we say in the video(if you saw it) that we are not romantic soulmates, but creative ones… She is very sick in the hospital at this moment so prayers and good thoughts are very appreciated. Thank you for this lovely comment.
