Gemini by Audre Lorde

For my video assignment, I decided to try my hand at making my own. I thought about something that is generally not in video format like a poem and decided to make it into a video. I first found a poem I love which is Gemini by Audre Lorde and recorded myself on Audacity reading it. It took me many tries to not slip up on my words. I then found some relaxing clips from different ghibli movies and put them all together and put my poem over the clips. I feel that these clips really represent the poem and people can choose to engage with this piece in anyway. Close your eyes and listen or mute the video and watch!

  1. Nice. Video and poetry make for a novel combination, with many creative possibilities. I wonder how it would impact the piece to add some background sound, like some minimalist music.
