Stealing by Carol Ann Duffy

Update: this video is no longer online.

Directed by Gerard Docherty. Aside from the sloppy spelling, this is a fine video and seemed worth sharing. Duffy is, of course, the current Poet Laureate of Great Britain. I assume this video was made without her permission, and thus represents a kind of stealing itself — and/or an homage and act of generosity, depending on your view of intellectual property rights.

I’m going back to posting five videos a week here, at least until I can shrink the current queue of draft posts. So much good stuff coming out these days!

    Music works really well in this one. Don’t recognise it though and it’s not credited at the end (unless I missed it).

      No, there’s no credit — probably because they stole it.

    This wasn’t bad for a cheap student film, judging from “Largs Academy” in the credits i assume that this was a school project or assignment, so it’s not like they made a profit from stealing the music.
