Regarding Gardens by Simon Barraclough

Carolina Melis directed this wondrous animation by Michela Bruno for the U.K. nonprofit Animate Projects. The reading is by the poet. According to the description at Vimeo, poem, animation and music (“Missed,” by cellist Julia Kent) were conceived together:

An animated film inspired by both the historic gardens of National Trust property, Ham House and Garden, and the estates 17th century owner, Elizabeth Dysart, who held the vision for the garden. The film presents a living portrait of the historic garden of Ham House.

The animation is supported by the research of Garden History specialist Michael Ann Mullen and is accompanied by an original poem by Simon Barraclough and music by Julia Kent.
