For this remix project, I remixed “Annabel Lee” by Edgar Allen Poe. I initially made an erasure poem all about love, then made a video representation of the erasure poem, then added music and a voice over of the original poem to the video.
I originally chose this text because I had always liked poetry while in high school, and when I read this poem, I knew I could make something with it (unlike other poems that I wasn’t as inspired by).
The audience for this remix would be people who like poetry/English/Creative Writing, and want to share it with a wider audience.
The purpose of this remix is to share poetry with a wider, social-media-savvy audience.
This remix might circulate by people sharing the YouTube video on blogs or social media sites, like Tumblr or VSCO.
