Editorial Reviews

"Two by Demian" contains a comedy and a documentary, which have absolutely nothing to do with each other. Except, perhaps, the fact that Demian produced, wrote and directed both of them.

=== "Director's Commentary" ===
       (2004) - 21 min.

A house party host attempts to play matchmaker. While mutually attracted, the two guests she hopes to match have very different fantasies about each other. Ultimately, we learn the dark secrets that lie behind their social masks. Throughout the entire video we hear the director's commentary - just like on some fancy DVD videos - only you cannot shut the egotistical narrative off.

The sound track utilizes Demian's arrangement of a tango. The story runs 15 minutes, with another 6 minutes of bloopers and out-takes (including more of Chelsea's spectacular fire dance in her underwear). Shot on DV-cam in Seattle, and released in December 2004.

=== "T'ai Chi Chuan with Master T.T. Liang" ===
       (1971) ... 28 min.

This documentary contains an interview with Master Liang and his performance of five T'ai Chi dances. Two of these are sword dances and two are two-person dances with his assistant, Alice Crooks. Master Liang (Jan. 23, 1900-Aug. 19, 2002) lived and taught in the U.S. about 30 years. Demian was a student of his in the early 70s.

Use your remote's Subtitle button to access English subtitles of the interview, and the names of each posture for the first dance of the series. This movie was supported by a grant from Smith College, Northampton, Mass., where it was filmed. Shot on 16mm b/w (with a magnetic sound track) on August 28, 1971, and re-edited in March 2010.

Verified Purchase
The only reason I purchased this product was for the historical content of the TTLiang footage which was selfishly deleted from Youtube. The rest is a unconvincing attempt at cinematography. Apparently, TTLiang was convinced to record footage for posterity, which he did. But, to combine his art with this crap is unfathomable. None the less, I would still encourage Tai Chi practitioners to purchase this product for the TTLiang historic content. Despite the ill conceived attempt to promote the directors mistakes, the Tai Chi footage is priceless! Too bad Demian was compelled to waste disk space with his science project, probably didn't have enough Tai Chi footage or failed to grasp the gifts he received.

I wish to thank a reviewer for the kind words encouraging others to purchase the DVD containing the interview and movement demonstration by Master T.T. Liang.

I, too, recall some old, poor reproductions of my documentary on YouTube.
They were removed because those who posted them had broken copyright law by publishing my work without permission.

A free excerpt from this movie, may be seen on YouTube, Vimeo and the Sweet Corn Productions video gallery:
