"Love Story" Video Poem

Love Story from Rachel Van Blankenship on Vimeo.

This is my first attempt at a video poem sans Claire. So hopefully as I do more, I’ll get better and HOPEFULLY I’ll get a real camera someday instead of having to use my phone, but this’ll do. I’m finding myself taking random little videos for no reason at all now. Stockpiling for the future. You can never have too many jams in the cellar.

      Thank you so much. To hear that from you, Ms. King, means a lot. I’m having fun with the video poems – it’s a new avenue.

    I really, really love this.

    I’m slow in catching up to your blogs, but every time I do I enjoy it.

    I have another friend who is a digital poet — you should check her out: http://www.erincostello.org/. She also runs a literary journal and does a lot of video/installation/poetry work.

    Hope you are well!

      Thanks for the link, I’ll check it out! She sounds awesome!
      This was the first one I did fully on my own, so I’m hoping they get better as I do more, but I’m glad you liked it! They’re pretty fun! I’m starting to match my poems with images more – stills that I’ve taken already, so the video stuff is something new for me, but I’m enjoying it so far. It’s a lot to learn – that’s for sure.
      Thanks for stopping by! Phoenix is getting HOT, but I’m hanging in there =)
