Video description

An interpretation of Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s The Rime of The Ancient Mariner.

Holt made her film in response to a graduate school assignment to animate an assigned audio clip. Although she first felt limited by not choosing the poem or the voice for her film, the process of call-and-response with someone else’s poem opened possibilities in her creative process. “I first thought of creating a partially-underwater collage in a sink, using the imagery of ships and sailors to my advantage. However, I quickly realized that it was impractical to put a paper collage underwater. The next idea was to try using fabrics to create a stop-motion animation in Adobe Photoshop and Premier. I ended up making most of my imagery on an embroidery hoop, stretching transparent fabric samples and adding layers, via Photoshop, from magazines and other found materials. I spray painted my type. I love typography, so I wanted to be in full control of the type. I love the resulting effect—those spray painted words on fabric. I picture them being on tote bags and t-shirts.”
