"Billy Collins, Action Poet" is a series of short animated films JWT created for The Sundance Channel. Billy Collins, former poet laureate for the United States, provided the poetry and the voice-over for these award-winning films.

Hear Billy read this on NPR a while back and thought the video was very suiting. I liked it a lot.

Loved the Billy Collins, Jet Blue, King Kong and Levis. Really inventive and impressive. Scruffs was a real throw-back/nothing new in that one AT ALL.

-J. Dancoff 06.18.06

Profound, beautifully written, and scary for those who recognize their own (or their parents') "senior moments" in this poem.

-postmodern 06.19.06

Powerful!!!! Seeing first hand what age and disease can take away from someone makes this piece scary and lonely, yet so poetic and peaceful.

-Marcia 06.19.06

Beautiful and poignant piece.

-passepartout 06.19.06

Best piece, is poetic, yes insightful and touching. Extremely powerful, and beautifully illustrated.

Change of pace from the rest. Good for the Sundance audience, but it will never make it on Monday Night Football (as if that matters).

-Joe 06.20.06

Billy Collin's gem is absolutely the best among the lot - funny, poignant and scary all at once. Poetry at its most luminous.
