So it took me all summer but I finally wrapped up editing Project #8 – the Choir Of Young Believers music video! Footage came in all shapes and sizes and it was definitely tricky dealing with it all but it all worked out. It looks like everyone had a blast!!!

Choir of Young Believers!

I am proud to finally announce Booooooom Project #8 and it is a big one. I had been dropping little hints on Facebook and Twitter and now I can tell you what it is!

choir of young believers music video action reaction

We are officially producing a music video for Denmark’s Choir of Young Believers!!! If you are up on music blogs then you already know, but in case you don’t Choir of Young Believers is orchestral pop music at its best! The group is essentially one guy, Jannis Noya Makrigiannis, although you may see as many as eight people on stage at a show. I think if you take one listen to the song Action/Reaction and you’ll see why I am so excited.

The main sources of inspiration for this project are Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Cheated Hearts video and Michel Gondry’s book, You’ll Like This Film Because You’re In It.

All of the content will be supplied by you! Performing the song! Playing instruments (real or fake)! Singing! Dancing! Jumping! Lip-syncing! Whatever the song inspires you to do! Try to capture the emotion of the song!

1. Get the song here: Action/Reaction.mp3 (no longer available). Turn your stereo up to 11 and become one with the music.

2. Get a video camera and some friends together and go wild! We are looking for raw footage, so don’t worry about editing what you shoot. Just concentrate on getting the shots!

3. All of the submitted content will be edited into one video, so be creative! Feel free to film multiple versions!

4. Upload your footage to Youtube or Vimeo and email the link!

5. If you are shooting NTSC (North Americans) you may also submit your footage on miniDV, data CD, or data DVD by mailing it to:

6. Understand that by submitting your footage you are giving us permission to use your images in the video.

7. Submissions are due by July 7th 2009.

action/reaction

im spending my time/ walking spirals in line/ did i ever honestly believe/ a change of mind/ and then a change of position/ only action no reaction no/ this time is mine together we cant spend it anyway/ nothing is gonna change nothing is ever gonna change

and im a trigger/ your my gun/dont you wanna come/ dont you taste the times that come/ back and forth in one/ dont you wanna come/ if I could take you to a better place

she is a monument/ and everyone is talking/ like a vision its all crystal clear/ a change of mind and then a change of position did we ever honestly believe/ watching dead bodies and bombs falling from the sky/ nothing´s gonna change nothing is ever gonna change

and im a trigger/ your my gun/dont you wanna come/ dont you taste the times that come/ back and forth in one/
