The Raven

The Raven from Michael Dibblee on Vimeo.

The challenge of animating a popular poem such as Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” is to effectively represent the mood, style and most importantly the voice of the poem. Inspired by the haunting literary imagery within the poem itself as well as illustrations by Edward Gorey, I created a dark, ominous visual that compliments and reinforces the poem.
