dog daze wins Best Video Poem at the 2018 Film & Video Poetry Symposium

My video-poem dog daze was an official selection for the 2018 Film and Video Poetry Symposium running in Los Angeles 26-29 April 2018 and ended up winning Best Video Poem!!

The video has also been shown as part of Brave New World: performance-poetry-film in Plymouth, UK, 31st May, 2018.

The video is constructed from sequences and stills taken around the Adelaide CBD. Each scene is animated using a complex series of layers and effects, some of which I made myself. The soundtrack was originally developed as a tribute to David Bowie’s Diamond Dogs for an event organised by Adelaide’s own Paroxysm Press.
