You Tube Tuesday: From 35,000 Feet/Praise Aviophobia


(*YouTube Tuesday idea originally came from the Martians Attack blog)


Earlier this year, I had an opportunity to interview both poet, Geffrey Davis, and film-maker, Chad Howitt in regards to the above film (originally presented by Motionpoems).    For the first time ever, I had a credit in a film for assisting with the film-maker on the poem.  A pretty cool experience 🙂


I love the whole premise behind  Motionpoems in their goal to take poetry and bring them to life through film.




To see the original film and interviews, the links are below:




Motionpoems now in the midst of its seventh season, and I hope they have many, many more.


If you’d like to participate in YouTube Tuesday, post something from YouTube that you enjoyed and tell us a bit about it.  Don’t forget to include the link to this post in yours so I can check it out.  Also, if you’re on Twitter, tweet about it using the hashtag #YouTubeTuesday.


Motionpoems: Short Film & Interviews

I’m interrupting my usual posts to bring you a special short film: Creased Map of the Underworld


This film took a poem written by Kim Addonizio which was then put into motion by film-maker Bryan Michurski.  It’s gritty, and it’s dark.   After watching it, you may never look at the world, or death, quite the same again.   Through Motionpoems, I had the honor of interviewing both Kim and Bryan.  You can read it here.
