To complete this project I used the following software programs:
To finish the poem's design, I created the completed puzzles for each of the sections in Adobe Photoshop. Then I cut them up by stanza, so each puzzle piece is a stanza.
When I designed this poem, I created a storyboard, a sketched representation of each frame of the video. Then I drew and traced each of the images in Adobe Illustrator. Next, I recorded my voice saying the poem lines, both the full lines and the single sounds from the lines heard as an echo in the video.
Nolan Ritter, a VCT video student, animated the images I created in Adobe After Effects. He helped compile the animations and audio in Adobe Premiere for the final video.
Once I saw parallax scrolling, I decided to design one of my new poems using it. This effect occurs when elements on a page move at different speeds as the user scrolls, normally with the foreground moving faster than the background. I used ScrollMe jQuery to help images and text animate as a user scrolls through this poem.
Each of the images I drew or traced in Adobe Illustrator. There I added the poem's text onto the images.
I designed each image using Adobe Illustrator and/or Photoshop.
