"Visual Words" to screen at Maine Int'l Film Fest

Dave Puls acted as animator on Bob Barancik's latest video project,
"Visual Words." The piece will play in July at the Maine International
Film Festival.

"Visual Words" is an experimental piece inspired by world events. It
combines motion graphics by Puls with poetry and art by Barancik to
present a daring emotional experience.
