Shakespeare’s Sonnet 12 - A short film

I was looking back through some of my old YouTube videos and noticed this short film my wife and I made a few years ago when we lived on our houseboat downstream from Stratford-upon-Avon. I though it was pretty nice despite the awful video quality so I dug out the original iMovie file and exported a slightly better quality version. It's still not exactly HD but good enough to get the idea (view on YouTube).
The video was inspired by Shakespeare's Sonnet 12 and took advantage of a day when the River Avon had frozen over. We managed to finish filming just in time before the ice completely melted and the letters started to sink. The soundtrack is by a really talented musician named Alessandro Gwis.
