Songwriting and video to tell a story
I was asked by Allee Willis, a Grammy winning songwriter, to post a link to her newest video, Hey Jerry. What’s so interesting about the video is how it captures the life’s work of 91 year old, drummer, Jerry Thrill. In 3 minutes and 41 seconds you get numerous clues about Jerry’s life and the music she played and still is playing. I was tempted to fly out for their video release party just to meet this interesting character and hear more about her life story.
This video is a great example of how different media; song, film, and art can combine to create a fuller picture of what you are trying to portray. Check it out at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYZkFOZoP-o
