I believe that the way we receive spoken word visually and digitally can be more than just a stage and a microphone, more than just a live performance. Poetry can be visual. Film can be poetic and lyrical, not just that it can be accompanied by actual poetry but a film can be a non-linear string of images that tells a story just as concrete, understandable, and as beautifully as a narrative film. I am raising money to purchase equipment and start shooting poetry shorts much like my latest “This Gen’”(below). I plan to create a space for poets, a digital space for spoken word artists that is not one-dimensional. To bring forth a combination of the beauty of film and the beauty of spoken word. Also to normalize the idea of “Non-traditional” and “Experimental” film. Learn more and donate at: http://gofundme.com/KearmonieFilms.
