Inspired by a Song - To all the Lyrics
By Nick Blair
18 Nov 2009
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.
Everyone sent me their favourite song for the 14 submitted. Members then get to show the one they want.
Tricia gets Desafinado - Antonio Jobim words by Newton Mendon
Chris gets Keep Hangin' On - Husker Du
