Survey says . . . THF Video Archive

Every September the Board of Directors and Associates of The Haiku Foundation are sent a survey. Their responses help to guide our growth and direction. We’d like to broaden our input, and so we’ll be asking you to respond to a series of questions, one per week, over the next half-year. Your replies will be weighed in our assessment of our performance.

Today’s question: THF Video Archive

The Video Archive has released offerings in several categories: interviews, readings, lectures, “master clips,” video haiga and reports. Offerings will continue to be added regularly. Additional footage will be shot as opportunity presents itself, particularly at conferences and other gatherings of poets. The THF Video Archive is available on the website.

Please assess how well The Haiku Foundation is delivering on this topic. Indicate your assessment of our performance to date by choosing one of the options:

Excellent

Good

Fair

Poor

Abandon

Please feel free to add additional comments. Thank you in advance for your consideration, and for helping us make The Haiku Foundation a better resource.

  1. Good. I think that videos of so many poets reading their work or doing presentations is invaluable for the historical memory of the international haiku movement. I’ll always remember visiting Jerry Kilbride when I got stuck in Sacramento during the first days of 9/11. I sat and listened to him read his haibun, then asked him if he ever taped his readings for posterity. He hadn’t, but perhaps, it was possible during the last few years of his life.

    This is a great thing THF is doing and continues to do. With that said, I’ve seen THF videos which fade in and out again and again because they have been cut so many times in one reading. This affects the over all quality. Therefore, I look forward to seeing the increase in both the quality and quantity of the videos.

  2. Excellent. Through the Video Archive I’ve “met” many new poets and gained a better understanding of haiku and haiku history. Sometimes I take a break from writing, and watch a video again. We link to this Feature and others from The Education Wall (and will continue).

    Also, the number of videos on YouTube now must be helping new people find haiku and The Haiku Foundation. Thanks to all, Ellen
