This music video series (and album, and pre-election November concert with video projection) is aiming to be twelve issue-themed songs, covers or originals, each by a different group of diverse musicians with cover art by varying artists for their single releases. I hope to include as many citizens' (written) voices as possible by way of overlaying footage.
Then if you or those in your circles or reach have reason or motivation / inspiration to similarly partake with a stationary / static 10-second horizontal-frame video of you/them standing while holding a screen-legible handwritten sign for any of the following proposed more-specific issues listed as brainstorm below (or any others you suggest!), I'd be grateful for and reverent of the share.
Whether you/they choose to include your/their face onscreen with the story, urge, quip or factoid is of course personal, with some of these subjects being more sensitive and historically shame-centric than others.
As well, they'll be included in the music video montages in slo-mo, but I can certainly take care of that "in post," as I know it makes video clips much larger to send to Annie@AnnieMcCainCasting.com.
