I started by wanting to put together a video of my helicopter trip over the Kaskawulsh Glacier near Vulcan Mountain, the one I took when I was visiting the Yukon. But something wasn’t adding up, and then I realised it needed words. I found a poem from my poem-a-day challenge that fits with what these photos evoke in me, and I had to decide: text or spoken. Well, I was too tired and too impatient to figure out how to line up the spoken words with the right photos and have music too in MovieMaker, so I went with text. I’m familiar with working with text in a video anyway.
And so a poetry video was born.
