A huge fan of yours. But, let me say this with honesty and sincerity as poet to poet....this blew me away! It's the future of OUR craft and you truly are the warrior queen!
Love the song. Loved the imagery. Loved the poem. What more can be said?

HOW DO YOU DO THE EFFECTS? I use "mash-up" videos with my mac....but I cannot find a program that will allow me to do what you do? The expression you put in is perfect!

Welcome to a new, bright, brave age of Poetry! THIS is GREAT! LOVED IT! That's such an awesome Floyd song too....and it fits the theme perfectly. You know - they have an entire art school dedicated to this craft in California - if I can find the link - I'll send it.

Please tell me about the editing - the graphics so maybe I can join you in trying to create masterpieces such as this!

GOOD JOB!

Wow, Jason! Thanks sooo much for the kind words! I'm an artist too, so, from my point of view, creating video poetry is like drawing and painting. We all try to evoke and provoke emotional responses with our art. I try to put touch taste smell sight and sound into my work. I have a touch of "synaesthesia", so, words and sounds and odors sometimes have colors for me... anyway, enough about that...

I use Wavepad Sound Editor for the audio effects. For the graphics, I have a variety of tools... Particle Illusion 3 is a fab program! That's what I used to put the green swirls in the sad girls eyes and the flock of bird shadows and feathers too. From these editors, I took everything to Windows Movie Make and used the different effects and transitions... here's a link that has LOTS of good FREE video stuff.. http://neophyte.windowsmoviemaker.info/videofx.php .. You can get lots of free transitions, effects and free particle illusion effects. I love "Neo's World"!

If there's anything else I can do to help, let me know, OK?

Peace..Voo

Cookie ~ This is awesome.  I have said many times that I think you have an incredible talent in mixing these medias all together.

While I think your choice of female subject is fantastic, what I especially liked is the way that her face went in and out of cohesion.  And of course, Floyd definitely added to the mood.

Allen, thanks so much for your very very kind words! They are much appreciated.  :cheekiss

(seems that Pink Floyd sets the mood for many of my poems!)
