Heartwood was a poem written by my friend Jens Hieber and our latest visual poetry project. This time, I tried to do something different - stop motion! :)

It started with an idea of photos blending into moving pictures, then I wanted it scrunching up in time with the music before it would dance about the ground. It was later that I thought ah! stop motion could do this. Then when I did the music, there was the harp section where the image of scattering dried leaves just came to mind. So Glenn had an idea to use the blue screen for that.

Anyway, the result was... as posted :)

We had a lot of fun making this project - as you can probably see from the pics :) So I hope you enjoy watching it as well!
