This article discusses the use of a filmed conversation as a medium of reflection on creative practice, in particular the practice of making filmpoems. We consider in what sense the filmed conversation might be a rigorous and productive mode of reflection, and describe the process of producing the film, as well as analyzing the mode’s effectiveness as a way of reflecting on practice. This analysis is presented as a case study of a non-conventional medium of reflection and of its relation to the more conventional scholarly article. We argue that the reflection recorded in the film is distorted by production and editorial processes, but that nevertheless it provides a useful and distinctive form of reflection to augment conventional accounts. By exploring how reflection on practice is shaped by the medium of publication, this article contributes to advancing the discipline of Creative Writing and making its reflective element more productive.
