Poetry in Motion: Part 1
Lucinda Hitchcock will join us to talk about the Poetry in Motion project begun by Poet Laureate of Rhode Island Tina Cane. You will hear how Lucy came up with the identity for the project and get a chance to ask her questions. Your assignment for next week is to put the logo into motion. Create either a frame by frame animated gif or a movie in After Effects. The animation should be short. The animated gif working in an email, instagram or other looping capacity. The movie version would appear as a loading screen on an app or at the beginning of the poem itself, or on TV, etc. Two seconds is a good maximum. 640x480 is a good size, although if you can keep your artwork vector that is ideal.
Choose a poem to animate. If you don’t know where to start, check out The Poetry Foundation and The Writer’s Almanac. Choose a relatively short poem — one that lends itself to motion. The site of the poem will be on vertical monitors on city busses. The screens hold various types of content. Ride the bus and see the current selection. Although the current platform does not support motion, this assignment asks you to incorporate motion in some capacity. One minute is the maximum amount of time allowable. 720 × 1280 pixels
