I think I mentioned before that I wanted to try out videopoetry. The genre as far as I can tell is just what it sounds like, a video of a poem. A poetic video. I dunno. But anyway, I spent probably too much time watching some videopoetry and thinking this looks really cool I want to try. Because as fun as vlogging is, and I'm still gonna do it, I'm just awkward and inconsistently feel like doing it but I still want to use YouTube as a creative and networking resource and so the result, ladies and gentleman, is my videopoem, Soft Pedal:
If there's one thing I learned in high school creative writing, it's that sibling rivalry can most definitely be used as creative fodder. Ok, so I actually learned a ton in high school creative writing, and this poem is one of the things that came out of it.
So what do you all think? I would love your feedback and ideas on this, because I want to keep going with it and do lots more, everything from more straight up poetry vids like this one to vloggy/vignette poetry vids and see what comes of it.
Here's a playlist of some of the videopoems I was watching the other day, some of them are super weird but could maybe inspire some ideas. They all have very different styles, which I kind of want to play around with. I think its worth checking out.
