Writing & Literature



I love the marriage of poetry, film and sound. Taking a poem I have written, and shooting an accompanying film, can give the written word added dimension and depth. Fusion of the verbal, visual and audible can occur in the most magical way. Those who may not read a book of poems may enjoy viewing a poetry film. I like the accessibility of it, where film brings poetry to a broader readership and spreads the beauty of the written word. An example of this is when one of my poetry films, Knitted Knockers, went viral quite quickly because a cohort of people identified with the subject matter. I want my poetry films to be visceral, relatable and easily found. The combination of moving image and spoken word is powerful. Technology can make poetry accessible to more people, which for me is everything.
