Adaptation: Poem to Video
More Billy Collins poetry, with video animation and the author’s narration. In this case, the poem’s words appear (sometimes partly so), line by line, variously positioned in successive shots. That effect forges another link between the aural and visual, but the variation in the positioning of the lines and the truncated words disturbs the perceptual processing in a interesting way, I think. Generally, the animator has associated the poetic line break with the traditional horizontal montage cut. You like?
