Decampment is an animated short film based on the poem of the same title written by Travis Mossotti. The poem first appeared in the winter 2010 issue of Southern Humanities Review and is forthcoming in his first manuscript About the Dead. The film tells the story of a man still grappling to understand a series of events from his early life that are both tinged with regret and rich in emotional complexity. This short film bridges the mediums of poetry and film while maintaining the structure and power of the written word. Rather than merely importing the poem into a different medium, the author and director have collaborated closely to ensure that the adaptation is an independent work of art, successful on its own terms. Decampment offers a unique method of animation, blending traditional and computer generated techniques through an impressionistic lens in order to deliver visuals that are exclusive to this film.
