Week 2 – Elements of Filmmaking Poetry as Film- Stanza 1


Each group will develop a short poetic film based on the Renga style and discipline.


What to do:

This week you film 1 stanza (line)

Imply location and season. Other than that do what you want.


-Stanza must be composed of 1,3, 5, or 7  different shots of any length 

  1. Upload footage to iMovie/Final Cut
  2. Edit down. FINAL movie must be 20 seconds or 40 seconds
  3. Mute and then add a soundtrack
  4. Export and upload to Google Drive
  5. Put in CMA folder

Hint: Film this using visual representation.

How would you film the leaf falling? The tree branches are so bare, autumn has arrived.
