Walt Whitman Birthday Celebration, 2009 Video

Walt Whitman 2009 Collage Title blogI’m guessing, but the 2009 Walt Whitman Birthday Celebration is the 16th in Montgomery County, Texas. Over twenty poets reading their favorite Whitman poem and one of their own, plus four Whitman scholars sharing the research and writings and soprano, Marion Russell Dickson, made this year’s event the best yet – even without our leader, Dave Parsons, who was in Georgia attending the funeral of his uncle. With so many participating, trying to capture photos and video of the event was fun, but the real challenge came in trying to create a less than ten-minute video. To do real justice to everyone who participated, an audio script with a storyboard using photos and video clips would have been the best approach. However, not having the time to write the script, it has still taken two months since the event to post this entry. Even so, I hope this video gives the viewer a good summary of our annual celebration.

If there are those who might be interested in working with me to plan a visual and audio production of next year’s event, please contact me.
