1. This is animation after all and any kind of motion is possible, but there must be rules. For example, if a character in your story can’t fly and then all of a sudden he can fly for no reason. As soon as something looks wrong or out of place, your audience will think about how weird that looked and you’ve lost them.

  2. This Poetry Animation is a representation of Hart Crane's iconic 'Proem' from his epic work 'The Bridge'. Suzie Hanna animated the film using hand cut stencils imitating some graphic aspects of contemporaneous 1920s New York artists who were in Hart Crane's coterie, such as Joseph Stella and Marsden Hartley. She also referenced Vorticism to capture vertiginous aspects of the verse. The voice of Tennessee Williams, who was an ardent admirer of Crane, is taken from a 1960 recording. Tom Simmons has built this into a resonant dramatic soundscape which interprets the materiality of the bridge, the surrounding land and waterscape and the 'prayerful' qualities of the Proem. He embeds sonic references to Hart Crane's 'shamanic process' in which the poet played records on his Victrola, including Ravel's 'Bolero', loudly and repeatedly , whilst drinking heavily and typing phrases in manic bursts. The film is part of ongoing research into representation of poetic metaphor, between Sally Bayley, Tom Simmons and Suzie Hanna: their recent article 'Thinking Metaphorically and Allegorically: A Conversation between the fields of Poetry, Animation and Sound' was published in Autumn 2013 in the Journal of American Studies. A further installment has been commissioned for publication in Spring 2014.

    The snow in my hometown is very soft and innocently beautiful. This film is calm and clean as much as the snow that I remember. There is no questionable or hidden meaning. All the movements and expressions in the film are simple and universal.

    私の故郷に降る雪はとても柔らかく清らかである。
    その雪が少しも汚れないような、静かなアニメーションを作った。
    そこに怪しげな意味など存在するはずはなく、
    表現されている動きは普遍的でありふれたことだと感じる。(監督コメント)

    „The film takes us into the murky waters of fantasy. With a cool kind of magic, this delicately stylized film draws us into various layers of reality, as we plunge from silent melancholia into the graphic frenzy of competitive sports, where everything is turned upside down. The notion of the flipside of reality is taken literally here, to mesmerizing effect.“ (Jury's statement, Fantoche 2013)
