About

In this interactive camp, students will be introduced to the genre of video poetry and collaborate in groups to create a video poem of their own. Students will engage with poetry playfully, through poetry games (exquisite corpse), video collage (through found footage), and soundscape. Fun, explorative, and experimental, this camp will help students understand the many ways poetry can be experienced off the page, offering tools and resources to bring creative visions to life. Using NWFF cameras and Adobe Premiere, students will create and edit their own video poems to share with friends, family, and festival audiences at April 17 showcase of the 2020 Cadence: Video Poetry Festival.
