Your new book 15 Poems - in a few words, what is it about?

 

Hi, Michael. It's a simple 15 page (approx.) book about poems I wrote in lockdown and during these cold autumn months.

 

Being a filmmaker and YouTuber first and foremost, what inspired you to release a book of poetry?

 

Several subjects and experiences during the last 18 months or so, made me write the 15 Poems e-book. Being from Nottingham, England, and being in town one day as the world was re-opening (spring 2021). made me go sightseeing.

 

Also, it felt good to do something with the writing I had put together and it'd been just sitting there.

 

What were your sources of inspiration when writing your poems?

 

I'd say locations and moods and experiences inspired the writing as a whole. A mix of feelings towards feeling productive during the evenings and wanting to express something creatively.

 

How would you describe your writing style?

 

I'd say my writing style was a little bit urban, a bit traditional, sometimes raw and honest as it can be in the moment. It can also be creative and flow into other creative media like asking others to record the poems for video form.

 

What's a typical writing session like when you're working on a poem?

 

It goes with a mood-set or it can go like that. The rest should flow. I also know that writing isn't the easiest thing in the world to pull out of thin air. I guess again, it depends on the mood. I write and if I'm happy, I'll ask a friend or a good voice-over artist to record the writing or poem, then set it to visuals on YouTube.

 

Poets and writers who inspire you?

 

The great, late Johnny Cash (songwriter & writer). As a child, storybooks from Roald Dahl, comicbooks, and fantasy adventure books. As to add, the most inspiring people are those that do writing for a living, Ann Massey (who writes for Spooky Isles online) and other friends that are independent, hard-working writers in different fields.

 

As mentioned above, you're better known as a filmmaker - so how does making a movie compare to creating poetry, and does either inform the other?

 

The strange thing is, I've always kind of used poetry in some fashion as a narrative to try and tell a visual short film or video on YouTube. I have to mention writers like Ann Massey again, who have helped me with YouTube videos. A shout out to actor Rod Glenn [Rod Glenn interview - click here], who has narrated my work, along with Massey and dark poet Andrea Van Scoyoc [Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc interview - click here].

 

The $64-question of course, where will 15 Poems be released?

 

Amazon Kindle as it stands at the moment.

 

Any intentions to write more poems, maybe one day release another collection even?

 

That would be a great idea. The creative journey is always ongoing. It gives goals for future outlets.

 

A Mr. Shelton Christmas Special

... and since this is a film website, any movies planned for the foreseeable future?

 

Michael, I appreciate your time. My YouTube channel has all sorts of short film creations and creative videos. The last proper thing I filmed was The Curse of The Crimson Creeper (2021), a short film featuring my friend Bayden Redshaw (aka Baydzone on YouTube) [Bayden Ray Redshaw interview - click here].

 

While we're at it, also talk about your YouTube channel for a bit?

 

It's been a different direction. I've managed to find older video footage and re-edit newer, better videos these days. I feel much happier in my abilities and editing. That's not to say that I don't get lost for ideas, sometimes. With video platforms, you have to keep things flowing and relevant or targeted at your friends and peers to get noticed.
