We are working on a new music video for Come Alive and you guys are going to star in it!
Here’s how its going to work:
1. Make a video of you or your friends being awesome while Come Alive is playing. It could be your tribe, friends, family, co-workers… anyone! No time limit set so you could film the entire song or a 10 second clip. Newer iphones and mobile devices are ok. Androids, GoPro’s, or digital cameras all work. Just make sure to shoot wide landscape (longer left to right), DO NOT SHOOT PORTRAIT ASPECT.
2. Be doing something that makes you happy. You could be jumping off a cliff in costa rica or taking a walk in the local park with little ole Grandma. Whatever! As long as its you being you.
3. Submit all videos to us via dropbox or Google drive by July 31st. Upload specs: 1080p / .mov or .mp4 files. Send dropbox/google link to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
4. Recommendations: Recommend not wearing logo’d clothing or gear. Underwater or near the water videos recommended also.
Please deliver videos in minimum of 1920x1080p pixel dimensions.
Preferred frame rates are 24 FPS and 60 FPS. We will accept any frame rates.
Only shoot in landscape wide aspect ratio. We will not accept any video shot in up-and-down portrait ratio.
Avoid white clothing and any clothing with logos.
Avoid all logos in general.
PLEASE NOTE: We may not be able to fit all submissions in the video.
Thats it!! Good luck.
The meaning: Come Alive is about the interpretation of dreams. In my case, one recurring dream led to understanding and how to cope with anxiety…. Eventually becoming free. Here’s the long version of how the idea came about:
LYRICS FOR COME ALIVE –
What’s it mean to be a dreamer
in the morning light
will it all end soon
will we get out alive
what’s it mean to see the future
in the darkess of night
does it mean something more
should i open my eyes
they all come from the mountains
they all come from the sea
my spirits and dreams are always following me
We are the wolves at play
we are the ones who sing
that youre gonna be okay
and the vibe we bring will feed the light of day
none of the dreams you have can take the world away
whats it mean receiver
should we close up the door should we open the rest
whats it mean believer
of wolves at play
should you follow your heart or just lie awake
March 8th we’re headed to Echo Mountain Recording Studios in Asheville, NC to do a live in-studio Echo Sessions performance at 6PM ET that you’ll be able to stream online for free at http://iamavl.com. RSVP to our Facebook event to get a reminder on that Tuesday to tune-in!
