Hi,

I have been a member here at Travellerspoint since 2007 and have a particular interest in travel photography. I also happen to be a musician. My band 'Miracle Tree' is currently putting together the video for the song 'Release' and are looking for those of you who would be interested in contributing and 'getting your head on'.

The song was born as a result of selling up and taking the great travel leap. It has helped me escape the shackles of relatively meaningless routines, obligations and baggage. Travelling to new places and encountering new cultures has enabled me to focus on the journey of life. Accordingly, I really want to get a global image of a simple philosophy: 'Free yourself, everything is in your mind'.
All I need for the video is either a photo of you, or anyone else who is interested and happy to participate, holding a sign with either of the following words/phrases written on it:

FREE YOURSELF or FREE or YOURSELF
EVERYTHING IS IN YOUR MIND or EVERYTHING or IS or IN or YOUR or MIND

Ideally I would like to include photos from every corner of the world, highlighting diversity.

You are also welcome to submit a short video grab of you holding or raising the sign. Just make sure there is some kind of movement. You can stick it on your backpack as you walk past if you like. Whatever!

Signs can be on anything - old piece of cardboard box, written on a wall, anything. Think variation!

If you are happy to contribute, please message me and I will provide a submission address.

You can hear the song at

my sincere thanks. Enjoy YOUR journey!

Stephen.

I think it could be pretty cool too Sapphyre, I don't have anything from anyone in Singapore as yet, so I hope you will participate!

Hey Stephen - very cool song!! Though, it took a bit to finally hear it. I ended up having to embed a widget into iGoogle. (Not a bad thing, mind you.)

I like the idea for the video. It reminds me of a segment they have on Good Morning America (Saturday program only) frequently - "Your 3 Words". People send in video clips expressing what's important to them in just 3 words written on whatever. It's a completely visual format.

Good luck with the project. Oh, and I really like "Sanity" too.

Hi Isadora

Thanks for your feedback. I am really hopeful that I can convince people to participate. I have already had responses fgrm Australia, Sweden, Canada, parts of the US and Europe. I would REALLY appreciate it if you would participate, also. If you are feeling a bit apprehensive or embarrassed, you could just frame a shot of a landmark in your town and stick your arm holding the sign into the frame... and even write the name of your town into the corner of your sign.... Feel free to pass on information/link to friends and family you think may be interested in participating.

I will email you a link to the video when its complete

Kind Regards

Stephen

No prob, Stephen! Sent you a PM making sure I have the request straight in my head. Can probably only offer stills. (Poor Fuji is on it's last little legs...)

Sapphyre,

Jen and I are off travelling around Spain for August, so I will be starting the edit at the beginning of September.
