Passover Sunrise - Art by Jason Jaspersen

We're excited to be working again with artist Jason Jaspersen on a lyric video for a new original song, Passover Sunrise. Here's a little information from the artist on the creation of this video.

It's an honor to once again provide visuals for a lovely Koiné song.  You may have seen my sand animations for "A Son Emmanuel" or various other Koiné songs.  This time I approached the sequence with acrylic paint and a motion capture camera.  When my hands entered the frame, the camera began recording.  This resulted in a large collection of short video clips.  I edited them together in episodes according to the lyrics.  Then each episode was sped up to match the time required for a set of lyrics.

This song asks us to empathize with Mary as it masterfully weaves Old Testament practices with Jesus' life, death and resurrection.  Did Mary hear the echos of her childhood Passovers as she watched Jesus' ministry unfold?  This is a song of pain and healing, of debt and hope. As with other original Koiné pieces, you can expect to learn more every time you visit.

Jason created this project from January 19, 2016 to Feb 28, 2016.  It is comprised of 608 video clips ranging from 2 seconds to nearly 1 minute each.  By his estimations, this all came to 4+ hours of footage compressed into the 3-minute song. Check out the full blog post on Jason's site for a deeper look into the creation of this video.
