THE TREES—THEY WERE ONCE GOOD MEN a poem by Todd Boss from Motionpoems on Vimeo.

This motionpoem was created by Emma Burghardt. Music composed and performed by Debra Barsha and Daisy.

Motionpoems is a volunteer organization that is made of just two people—me (Angella Kassube – designer/animator) and Todd Boss (poet). I started animating Todd’s poems and it was such a great experience for both of us, we decided to bring more poets together with other animators and filmmakers.
