Making a short film poem – step 3

March 4, 2020

Hi all,

Firstly, apologies for the absence of a post last week. I’ve no excuse other than time ran away from me with work and other things. That said, I did spend the Tuesday with six fab actors and Bridget – our equally fantastic sound person – recording my poems and a few additional ones into sound files.  The purpose being to create the accompanying tracks for future short film projects including the one I am doing as part of the film poem challenge that I know a few of you are also engaging with.

Okay, as I have yet to edit the filmed scenes, I cannot place the backing track with it just yet. That said – if you promise not to share it around the Internet you the rough copy of my poem ‘Back Road to Ballingeary’ as read by actress Emma von Schreiber can be found by clicking here (NB I’ve yet to edit the sound engineer data info from it). For full effect, once poem starts try scrolling down the visual images below (from last week’s post) at the same time it plays.

Til next week..all the best!

 

Back Road to Ballingeary

Behind the lake to Brigadoon

A place for sheltered lives

Ancient cottage, rustic farm

Stone slab bridge over simpering stream

And up the track to see the world
