Literary Adaption

For this piece, I wanted to adapt the poem “Heart to Heart” by Rita Dove (1952). The imagery evoked in this piece for me is immediate, but at the same time Rita is stating many concepts that are not actually occurring. For my adaptation, I wanted to oppose this sentiment and stay true to the imagery being presented. For the portions of the poem that are less representational as a physical object, I let the natural elements around my filming location vill the void, so to speak and to try to create a more subdued or lost feeling. For the most part, I want to utilize close-ups or extreme close-ups for my camera shots to embody the lines being referenced, keeping the stones in the area visible in some fashion for most of my shots.
