A poetry ... screening? Motionpoems wants to turn THE BEST AMERICAN POETRY 2011 into short films for new audiences. Read more
This project was successfully funded on June 14, 2011.
In 2011, you backed a Kickstarter campaign that allowed Motionpoems to produce two more seasons of great poetry films, pay filmmakers a stipend for their work, and attract the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis as our official premiere venue. Your support has helped us solidify our reputation as a leading producer of great poetry films.
Now we're exploring a new project, one that will turn a major public building in Saint Paul into a block-wide screen for poetry films in 2014. The building is the historic Union Depot, and the films will turn the Depot into a rail car, moving all who view it. It's a monumental project, and we wanted you to be the first to know. On Friday we started a Facebook page about it, so you can follow its progress. Click here, "like" it, and you won't miss a beat.
There are other big changes afoot at Motionpoems, and we're excited to tell you about those too ... when we can. Meanwhile, we're busy uploading Season 4 this month, and getting ready to release them, as before, in our monthly newsletter and at motionpoems.com. So watch for those. We hope you enjoy them!
It's a privilege to do the work we're doing, and we're honored that you're a part of it. Thanks for your support.
Yours in motion,
Todd and Angella, co-founders
