«Movie poetry is a passion of mine, and this was a very interesting approach. I haven't read the original poem and don't know if it was written with the idea of two characters, but I really enjoyed that approach. »

Description: This Machinima short was created by a team of 6 film-makers in the North West of England as part of the innovative DMEX (Digital Media Exchange) programme. It is an animated interpretation of a poem by the recently appointed Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy. The poem caused controversy and was withdrawn from the GCSE curriculum for its alleged glorification of knife crime. The film is produced using Moviestorm, a new piece of software that enables film-makers to produce machinima - computer games technology to make animated films. DMEX up-skills TV freelancers to work in digital media companies - through placements and training events. It is delivered by Manchester consultancy company The White Room and funded by Northwest Vision and Media - with support from NWDA and Skillset.
