A couple of Pacifica song writers, Rich Jasso and Lee Parvin, crafted a song to bring our attention to the border wall and what it means for the children. They asked me to set their photos to the music, so I submit it to you here. Credits appear at the end. And boy can Lee sing a song.
Over the years I’ve done dozens and dozens of Photo Montages, Photo-Video-Keepsakes, or what ever you’d like to call setting photos to music. It still brings me joy to see kid’s character pop when subtle photo movement and complementary music join forces.
One of my clients is Linda Bulgo’s Musical Productions. Linda has a rich theater history and provides children with an opportunity to put on a theatrical performance, with live music, in professional venues with a variety of props. It’s remarkable what she’s able to accomplish.
Her students performed “Getting to Know the Sound of Music,” at the Scottish Rites Temple in San Francisco. Here is a photo montage, set to Sound of Music tunes, from the Musical Notes cast.
