Proposal Title: "Mourning Innocence", 10/14/2008, Mixed media
Proposal Synopsis: In December of 2007 I recorded a short piece called "Mourning Innocence" which was a reflection of my thoughts and feelings on the loss of life, love, and hope in all wars waged by uncaring and unthinking people... but particularly those caught in the milieu of the US occupation of Iraq - a tragedy that defies description in my mind - but is a timeless burden on humanity at large.
My goal is to create a compelling short video set to my music using my own and others' static and moving images of political protests in the United States against the occupation of Iraq. As a US citizen, war protester and artist, this issue is very close to my heart - and I can think of no better way for me to keep alive the memory of their suffering. I have found one photographer's work I'd like to use, but may also incorporate others' as I continue researching and obtaining permissions.
The audio portion of this proposal will be attached via your sites upload feature.
I appreciate your consideration, and look forward to hearing from you.
