My Visual Poem



In G.T. we recently had a short project to do. It was making a visual poem. We first had to write a poem on a topic of our choice. I wrote my poem on reading and fiction. Then we had to go out and film it. I had help from my friends, Claudia and Sophia. I think that the visuals were a huge part of this. They helped you to see what I'm trying to say or just an idea of it and it creates visual interest.

My teacher let us add whatever effects that we thought would be cool and would go with our poem. In certain shots I added effects to add feeling and to create the overall mood of the visual poem.

I think that I had a pretty good visual poem. I was proud of the poem that I wrote and most of the visuals were applicable and visually pleasing. But I also think that I could have taken more time to film. I waited a while before I actually filmed it so I was rushing to get the visuals I needed. I may have procrastinated a bit too much on this one project. Next time I won't be a procrastinator like usual.

  1. I really liked all the books and props you used. However, some of the background noise could have been turned down or filmed again. Your visuals were interesting and related to the story.

  2. Very Deep and intriguing poem.
    Natural sounds were a bit loud and hard to hear your voice.
    B-role was clear and intertaining

  3. good B-Roll and voice overs
    Better B-Roll quality and the background noise can be lowered
    Good music that was added onto the video

  4. You had good visuals and interesting views.
    The audio got windy and cut off.
    Your poem was well written and relatable.

  5. I thought that the words of the poem were very powerful. However, the background noise was very distracting, and the poem cut off at the end. Despite that, the B-Roll was really great, and you did an awesome job!

  6. I like you b-roll. Something you could of worked would be the background sound of the wind. Another thing you could of worked would be to speak a little slower. Lastly i really like the music because it matches you tone of voice. Great Job Brandi!

  7. Hello Brandi! You dare hide from us! Get the cats! XD Just kidding.
    Nice video! I love your B-Roll. I like the beginning where you had two B-Roll at the same time. One thing I suggest is that either your audio or your B-Roll had a lot of natural sounds. It really overpowered your voice. Besides from that, awesome video and your voice was nice and clear. Great work Brandi!

  8. I really liked the beginning, it really grabbed my attention.
    The voiceover was understable, but the background noise of the wind was a little too loud.
    I also liked how you got a lot of different angles in your footage.

  9. The clips related to what you were talking about very well. There were a lot of clips that were not focused properly. Your voiceover was understandable.

  10. Good Job Brandi.
    I think that if you could lower the background noises it would have been easier to understand the poem.
    Anyways, it was great. Love the story of the poem.

  11. I like how you did a split screen for your opening. One critique would be to find a quieter place to read your poem because there was a lot of background noise. But great sequencing.

  12. Nice Job Brandi!
    For one thing, there was a slight disturbance that affected the poetry for a bit (I couldn't hear the words well), so how about lowering the background noises?
    But overall, Awesome!

  13. I liked your B-Roll and your words matched with it.
    Wind and natural noises were a little loud. Especially toward the ending.
    I enjoyed the subject you chose for your poem, and I could relate to it very easily!

  14. The B-roll shots were filmed really well. The poem was cut off at the end. But overall good job.

  15. the natural sound was a little loud, but it had good visuals. It was interesting and relevent. The end was cut off but it was still okay.

  16. I like how you can relate with the poem.
    The voice over was a bit loud with the wind.
    The B-roll was good.

  17. great concept, And awesome b-roll! you should have gone some where with less wind.. But I love that your story relates to you! Great job keep it up!!

  18. I liked how you matched the visuals to the poem and it made it understandable. I think that you could've re-filmed your voiceover so that there wouldn't be so much wind. I also liked how you filmed most of the visuals out of school.

  19. I liked your poem.
    I think you could've improved your audio, the wind destroys it.
    I liked your relevant B-Roll.

  20. i liked your b-roll. You need to get the volume down.

  21. 1.) I could notice that you really planned out what camera shots and b-roll you would include to accompany your poem.
    2.) I think you could improve the audio because towards the end it was a little difficult to here you.
    3.) I think your Visual Poem was not only planned very well but it was also funny and reached out to everyone... great job!

  22. The different shot types you had is good. The voice over could have been filmed better. The B-roll were filmed really nicely.

  23. I liked how well you matched your visuals to your poem. The wind in the background was a too loud, you could've recorded it in a quieter place. I liked how you chose to do your poem about books and how people get lost in them; it's a relatable topic.

  24. I liked how the b-roll matched the voice-over.
    The voiceover was good at first but then it got really hard to understand.
    I liked how you used a lot of people.
