~ Poet: Allan Davies ~

Year Turning by Allan Davies

British storyteller, artist and musician Allan Davies calls this

a reflection on landscape and the changes wrought by the cycle of the seasons.

Using the poem as a starting point, the film is an experiment in illustration/exploration of written/animated/spoken text.

The simple graphic shapes come were the original illustrations to the poem. All the rest of the images were shot using a small compact digital camera… I’ve been mildy obsessed with collecting sequences of shots for a while now, and this is my first attempt at doing something useful with some of them.
