Klara by Dale Innis & Karima Hoisan


Very excited to share with you all, this off-beat, pretty long (almost 10 minutes) surreal video collaboration with Dale Innis
Those of you who read me regularly, know that Dale Innis is a scripter friend who has collaborated with me and also with Natascha & I for the last 10 years and lately has been dabbling in all sorts of AI Art, especially MidJourney, which is a veritable game-changer in this blossoming field.
He showed me a pdf file of slides and a story-line, that he had made and I fell in love…fell obsessed, is a better word, to try to bring this to a way more people could see it.
This is how the project was born. I found, what we both agree, is the perfect music ย  Meditative Music and I made a voice-over and edited the slides into what you’ll see below.
This is a very slow- moving, haunting, visually beautiful, relaxing, meditative, bizarre almost alien feeling story.
Please get comfy, take out 10 minutes and enjoy it with a good headset and on Fullscreen HD.
I promise you won’t regret watching…this is something very unique & new…..
We present to you…Klara

    • Thank you so much Joey for this beautiful comment…Knowing that you yourself have written many stories and whole books in science fiction, makes your observations even better, Yes Part One leaves much up in the air, and as this is not a totally normal, sequential story, it will be so interesting to see what Klara will do or where she will go next. I too love not knowing, but Dale is already working on it…and he does know!! Yes, somehow this beautiful world, with its many moons can at times, feel familiar…like from a dream.

    Hurrah! Thank you so much for doing this; I have the feeling it will do much more in the world this way than it would have as a silent 327 MB pdf file. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Seriously, the music and your voice and your editing really give the odd little story whole new levels. I will have to start thinking about Part Two!

    • Thank you Dale for trusting me to take your tucked away story…to the big YouTube screen:) It deserves to be seen by many..You have found something new..not just the AI Art (which is no longer new) but a way of story telling which is very new, fresh and mysterious..We humans on this planet, love a well done mystery and you have one going now as well as an interesting lead character and some amazing panoramic scenery!! 5***** from me!

    Well, this is just too much fun. ๐Ÿ™‚ Very good Second Life friend and collaborator liked the little Klara piece so much that she voiced it and set it to the perfect music and made it into a rather wonderful YouTube! Definitely more accessible ๐Ÿ™‚ and more of an experience this way than the 327MB pdf file. Wooot!

  7. This is stunningly gorgeous, but I must admit that the story was over my head – I didn’t feel that I understood what the eggs were, or the gift, or the bushes, the wide road, etc….

    • Then perfect David:) You are not supposed to know and they were not explained in the first chapter and plus..this storytelling is not sequential or linear, but somewhat like David Lynch brings into his movies… some revealed or talked about that has no place in the present but might come together in further chapters:) It’s as spacey as the images//more an experience than a lesson or story to decipher..Stay tuned for Chapter Two when Dale has finished it:) Thank you so much for watching and commenting!

    Such a surreal fantasy, out of this world but raising so many questions we all raise … I am keen to see where this leads. And you are so right it is serene whilst being provocative, a fascinating combination ๐Ÿ™‚

    I feel like it will unfold for you and Dale as it will for us. All in it’s own time and way ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you Kate for your beautiful comment..I am so glad it captivated you. Oh yes, I think you are right, this story continues and very organically..it feels very much like Klara herself is writing scenes to come…We are both just trying to keep up and provide her what will be needed in the 2nd part. Thank you for your generous, thoughtful comment! ๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ™

    This beautiful production feels soooooooooo innovative! The shared imagination first generated by the visuals created by the AI Engineer (Dale, lol) and almost whispered to us in that awesome sing-song narration by Karima, it kinda feels other worldly!! A phenominal expose’ of the AI art journey unfolding and urging us to be open to interpretation. The experience feels so good and I am ultra impressed with your duet. Two powerful senses merged, like ya’ll created a baby (laughssssss) and the baby is ADORABLE (smiles).

    • Scuse me for doing this (Copy’paste) fromYouTube but,…it’s still how I feel..
      Big Hugs Sis…You see it all:)
      Haha and thank you Diz:) Natascha and I always compared our collaborations to a gestating baby,,smiles and when it was born, we sent out our baby announcements on YouTube!! haha. In both cases, it was an immaculate creative conception, hehe, but the metaphor is very valid. I felt it like you did,..something new, so went for some very meditative music , slow transitions and a slow downed “See Spot Run” form of English. It captivated me from the start. Dale Innis is now a very adept AI artist…I am proud he let me take his slides and put them on Youtube so more people can enjoy them….Loved your comment Sis!!โค

    Hi Karima! What an interesting share. I love your delivery too, and artistic format. Philosophically the plot is esoteric but can have many meanings to some. In contrast to sci-fi, in the expectancy of evil or disasters, I always felt that peace was lurking. Thanks so much for your entertain share.

    • Oh my dear friend, how your comments always resonate with me..Your words have lifted me as high as the moons on Klara’s world.. This is a new experience for me, for Dale, and I know for my readers. At first I personally was hesitant, how it would be received because of its length…but that didn’t seem to be a problem in the end, for anyone. Navin that you feel it spiritual is so interesting, because from the very beginning, I too felt it spiritual and emotional…as well..It touched many strings and I think that is the beauty of this surreal tale…many can find something to relate to..just by experiencing it, without totally understanding it….Thank you Navin..I cherish this knowing and generous comment,๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒน
