Taking on this project was one of the most gratifying experiences of my life. I experienced so much growth in such a short amount of time. In the fall of 2020, I was approached by a Angie Johnson, an english professor at Bethany, to create content for Bethany’s Barbaric Yawp project. Students of Bethany celebrate national poetry month by creating videos to accompany student-read poems by established authors.
My work was heavily inspired by artists of the avant garde film movement, and because of that, was very experimental in each of the processes I used to accomplish the work. I shot on Super 8 film, etched and manipulated film, created hand drawn animations, and used AI to assist me in animating.
After looking through the pieces, feel free to check out the presentation video below!
