I have had the priveledge of editing three motion poems, all shot and directed by Jeff Saunders and Scott Olson. Motion Peoms is on it's fourth season of partnering poets and some of the most talented animators and filmmakers in the Twin Citeis. Each team receives a curated poem, but beyond that we have complete creative freedom with interpritation and execution.
This means that the editor has to make sense of an especially deep collection of abstract, vivid, and dispereate shots. It's at the editing stage that the poem and imagry find their magical bond.
