    For this production, I've been asked to act primarily as the role of Director/Producer/Editor/Presenter. My brief is to create a short film (1-2 minutes) on a poem of my choice, as long as it isn't below 180 words. I must choose a poem, which is from an accepted published author. 'Anon' from the internet is not acceptable. Any ideas?

    You should experiment, upload a video on to youtube and use animations to make your point


    Pick a poem that you know and love, mine would probably be some of Edgar A. Poes lesser known love poetry because there's so much to say about it. To Helen would be a good example:

    Helen, thy beauty is to me
    Like those Nicean barks of yore
    That gently, o'er a perfumed sea,
    The weary, way-worn wanderer bore
    To his own native shore.

    On desperate seas long wont to roam,
    Thy hyacinth hair, thy classic face,
    Thy Naiad airs have brought me home
    To the glory that was Greece,
    And the grandeur that was Rome.

    Lo, in yon brilliant window-niche
    How statue-like I see thee stand,
    The agate lamp within thy hand,
    Ah! Psyche, from the regions which
    Are Holy Land!
