The Project.

Music videos are moving images that bring songs to life. This project aims to bring members favourite songs to life through static images.

I've invited 13 members to send me their favourite song off all time. I've put all the member names and songs into a hat draw. Each member was drawn another members song. The challenge is to take that song, interpret it, concept an image of what that song means, then shoot it.

JPG Members also have the opportunity to contact the submitter and research why they choose it as their favourite. This will engage members to get to know each other.
