This is an open-to-all idea to create a video for one song involving as many musicians and singers as we can find… before sunday 22nd march. Maybe we’ll do another one afterwards.
interested? read on….
The idea is everyone to film themselves playing their part of the Radiohead song Glass Eyes, send it to our team of editors and we’ll make a song out of it… and a dance if you move around a bit.
Please send by the end of the weekend sunday 22nd march
What you’ll need
– something to film yourself which connects to the internet and can send a (possibly fairly large) video file; Easiest is a phone or a computer
– something else to listen to a special version of the track i’ve prepared to play along to
For us to synchronize the video we’ll all need to play at the same tempo so i’ve prepared the following:
– piano with lead vocal – probably easiest for most people to use this one
– bass with lead vocal – mostly of use to pianists or harp players
– piano without lead vocal, mostly of use to lead singers. do feel free to sing the lead it doesn’t need to be just one person. probably nicer if its a small group.
Here it is:
This is an open-to-all folder with no password so feel free to share with anyone alt all. it also contains all the music and MP3s.
Things to bear in mind
– you’ll need to do the whole thing in one take
– you’ll need to wear headphones, we don’t want to hear the click
– if you come in near end of song no need to film from beginning, we’ll figure it out
– try and be fairly well lit
– it would be good if we can see a bit of your confinement area in the shot
– dress up as much as you like (in pyjamas if you’ve got covid19)
– if you’re mouth is available near the end of the song, please sing along with the last couple of lines for maximum emotional impact and healing vibes
sending the video (again, please send by this coming sunday 22march)
when you’ve made the clip please send by wetransfer.com to firstname.lastname@example.org
– please just send one clip. hopefully there’ll be too many clips for us to edit more than one clip per person
– let me know if there’s anything i’ve forgotten
-please include your name and instrument in the file eg jesse-violin.mov
Do feel free to pass this on to anyone who might be interested, young or old. But be quick, i’d like all the clips in by sunday. we’ll do another soon!
