I am grateful to Kristin Somborac of Somborac Productions, an independent film and television production company based in Toronto, for commissioning, on behalf of the Bravo specialty network (owned by Bell Media), animated versions of three of my poems. (This happened three years ago when they were initially telecast; I am only now sharing them with friends and fans. Viewing time is about six minutes in all.)
The titles of the three poems (which appear below) are “Recipe for a Canadian Novel,” “Domestic Weaponry,” and “If the Rest of the World.” (Technically, the first two videos are animated short features, whereas third video is an instance of “pixillation,” a term identified with Norman McLaren, one of my idols.) Kristin is very imaginative, as are members of her crew. Thank you, Kristin!
