I Was A Little Baby Once.
Members of Swallow attend a Poetry Can poetry and
video project that they have named On The Line. It is
based at the Swallow office in Midsomer Norton and
they have been meeting for a year, creating poems,
videos, photographs and artwork. As part of the
project they went to Somervale School to work with
Helen Hewitt and DestinyTV to make an animation of a
poem, which was a wonderful experience.
"First I made
a baby collage, then I wrote a poem. I then drew a storyboard for the
bricks with letters on, teddy bear, dollies, a chair,
a baby, wings and custard out of plasticene. Then we
used a camera and computer to capture each frame and
moved the models. When it all came together I was very
happy, it really made me laugh"
Debbie Metcalf (poet of "I was a little baby once")
