My First Effort at Making a Poetry Movie: “A Call to Arms”

I just learned about, and then learned how to use, Windows MovieMaker. Below is my first artistic effort at creating a poetry video. It’s me reading my poem “A Call to Arms,” and it’s fully captioned. Let me know what you think!

By the way, this poem also appeared in the Fall 2008 issue of Trillium Literary Journal.

    I think this is really good. I like the way you played some with the texts to reinforce your meaning. I hope you will try more of these.

    Awesome – I like the visual and your words.
