"Song" by Frank O'Hara E-Poem

I struggled with this video. Originally, I wanted to create an e-poem using the poem "Howl" by Allen Ginsberg. I worked on it for a long time, but I found myself overwhelmed by the length and content of that poem. I decided instead to go with a Frank O'Hara. I hadn't heard of O'Hara until I found a poem of his and used it for my audio essay. His poems are simple, yet meaningful, and they always create specific imagery and tone for me. My e-poem looks a little different from the other people in my class, who used more layering. I never really got the hang of layering in Camtasia, so I went with a more cinematic approach. I divided the poem up stanza by stanza and found videos that I thought represented each stanza well. This is the second video I made for this poem. I was almost done with the first one when Camtasia crashed and I lost all of it. I started again from scratch, and I think it turned out pretty well.
