This motionpoem was created by Jeff Saunders with Scott Olson, Ben Myrick, Adam Tow, Carly Zuckweiler, and Andre Durand. It was shot in Jeff's studio.
It's a poem about writing poetry. Angella Kassube also created a motionpoem of this poem. It's great to compare them!
Motionpoems is a volunteer organization that is made of just two people—me (Angella Kassube - designer/animator) and Todd Boss (poet). I started animating Todd's poems and it was such a great experience for both of us, we decided to bring more poets together with other animators and filmmakers.
No one is doing this for money. We do it because we love it.
Yours in poetry and motion,
