  • Timber Puts Poetry In Motion For Motionpoems & “A Sonnet After Chopin’s Requiem”

    The creative team at Timber, led by Creative Directors Jonah Hall and Kevin Lau, were called on by Motionpoems (www.motionpoems.org) to create compelling visuals for an original poem by Poet Monique Adelle. Featuring voice-over by Ashley Becerra, the piece merges alluring colors of gold, white, silver and black to create unique and mesmerizing shapes moving in synchronized motion.

    Monique Adelle’s poem “A Sonnet After Chopin’s Requiem” is part of Motionpoems’ powerful seventh season of films, produced in partnership with Cave Canem (www.cavecanem.org) exploring the theme of “How Do You Raise a Black Child?” The series made its debut at the prestigious Walker Art Center in Minneapolis in Fall 2016; and just had its Los Angeles screening at the Playa Studios this month in January 2017.
