Asterisk (videopoem)

This entry is part 24 of 34 in the series Small World


This may be too literal and/or droll a video for the poem, but I couldn’t resist. Rachel encouraged me to make a shot list this time, so I did. It looked like this:

  1. Location: yard / Shot description: asters / Framing: whatever looks good / Action: whatever happens / Actors: whatever flies past

I used the Extract effect in Adobe Premiere to make it look vaguely like an animation.

  1. I like this a lot. The first line has grown on me since you first posted the poem. I don’t think the video image’s association with the poem is too obvious at all. It’s direct, pleasantly deceptively direct, as the poem itself.

    Really, this is one of my all-time favorites, and the video does it justice.

  2. What an excellent shot list. The exercise in forward planning obviously changed entirely your usual modus operandi. Lovely envideoing too.
