HEART REMAINS OPEN > w/ Joelistics & Word Travels > OPEN SOURCE VIDEO PROJECT
In collaboration with Word Travels, Elefant Traks, and YOU – hip hop artist Joelistics is working with Verb Studios is calling out to all fans, artists and filmmakers – or anyone with an HD camera or videophone to contribute their vision of Australia for a national video portrait by uploading their own footage over the months of April 2012.
The HEART REMAINS OPEN PROJECT is an open source video project which invites anyone in Australia to contribute their own vision of the country.‘HEART REMAINS’ is one of the standout tracks from his recently released album VOYAGER. It’s an insightful reflection of the Australian landscape, culture and psyche. Written while on the road, Joelistics has channeled his feelings about his homeland into this epic ode to what he calls “my version of ‘I Love A Sunburnt Country’”. From the ghost to the cities to the stars in the red center it paints a portrait of a thousand faces of Australia. The project will use the track HEART REMAINS from the album VOYAGER as the inspiration for an experiment in social media art collaboration to create a video self-portrait of Australia.
The deadline is the 1st of May - after which all videos will be cut together by Joelistics and Verb Studios into a final edit that captures a thousand perspectives of Australia. The final video will be launched at a special SLAM TV screening at Wordstorm 2012 – The Festival of Autralasian Literature in Darwin on the 11th of May.
All contributions will be uploaded to a dedicated channel at vimeo.com/groups/heartremainsopen by the 1st of May.
