Water, Water


Uniting the diverse voices of poetry

Absolutely beautiful… unmissable viewing
— The Guardian

Forward Arts Foundation commissioned us to produce a short animation celebrating the UK's National Poetry Day. The theme was 'water' to inspire children and adults alike across the UK. It is a film by Leo Crane with sound by Andrew Hayes.

To the sound of poems recommended for schools, as well as several others shortlisted for the Forward Prizes for Poetry, we crafted a visual narrative of exploration and discovery. We also produced posters as downloadable resources for schools.

Leo’s commitment to our mission - making poetry heard - was equalled only by his creativity. He was thoughtful, collaborative and generous with his knowledge and his networks. We cannot recommend him highly enough.

This watery-themed animation is absolutely beautiful and will only take up 90 seconds of your day. Unmissable viewing.
