Project Main Details

The Cruel Moon Poem Visualization 
The project is a filmed visualization and interpretation of the poem "The Cruel Moon" by Robert Graves. Its core concept is of someone hiding in their residence from the moon, interspersed with shots of the moon and a city. It is quirky, whimsical, and not quite serious: the last shot is of a person giving the moon the finger.

Voiceover should be authoritative but reassuring, almost as if talking to a child. This video ( ) shows roughly what I would like the timing to be like; please feel free to use it as a guideline. The final line presently has no timing consideration on it, and the delivery of it is up to you.

Please also take note that I am a poor college student and cannot pay much.

Script Details

The Cruel Moon hangs out of reach
Up above the shadowy beech.
Her face is stupid, but her eye
Is small and sharp and very sly.
Nurse says the Moon can drive you mad? (5)
No, that’s a silly story, lad!
Though she be angry, though she would
Destroy all England if she could,
Yet think, what damage can she do
Hanging there so far from you? (10)
Don’t heed what frightened nurses say:
Moons hang much too far away.
