Video Lyrics for Peace Part 1

September- December 2014 Class worked really hard on creating video lyrics with songs to promote world peace. These are the works of the different groups:

Name of the song: Same Love. by: Macklemore x Ryan Lewis feat. Mary Lambert
Video lyric by:
Jesus Agreda
Alessandra Briceño:
Fernando Gonzalez:

Alessandra Briceño's insight:
As a group we had the idea of creating this Video Lyrics with a Stop Motion of Sticky Notes. In the process, the three of us took a lot of pictures, probably more than a hundred, one of us took pictures meanwhile the other two put and took all the sticky notes. After having all the photos we took turns to edit the video putting all the pictures together changing according with the lyrics of the song. Each one of us gave his opinion to write the descriptive report of the video which the link will be at the end of thins insight. After all, we worked together to bring out the best of each other to make this beautiful meaningful video.

Some photographs taken are blurred or out of focus and this is because we tried to connote the vision or thinking of some people. There are people that it’s so closed minded that wouldn’t take the time to analyze and reflect what the real problem here is. The problem is not whether people are gay or lesbian but the rejection of other people reacting to this. We should respect each other beyond our taste for women or men, our skin color, religion and economic status.

We shouldn’t discriminate people just because they want to marry or love someone of their same sex, they should be free to love without any restrictions or being afraid. We need peace in this world, we need love, we need to understand that to build a better place every little thing starts with ourselves. We need to change from inside out to lead other people to change for a better world where the newest generations will follow the example.

In my opinion, some Americans think that being obese is a disease but being homosexual it’s a choice which is completely absurd. Because people not being healthy or eating well it’s a choice, to not take care of their own body but being homosexual to love someone without thinking of their sex its absolutely not a choice. Homosexuals do not chose to be this way and of course they do not chose this to be bullied, discriminated and so on.

We shouldn’t be afraid of being different because that what makes us unique and beautiful. To everyone that is reading this, I am telling you its ok to be different there will always be people there to support you, in the meantime if there are people that don’t just don’t worry try to make a statement and share your stories don’t be afraid and keep your heads up. Smile :D

Jesus Agreda's insight:

In my particular opinion I think this was an amazing experience, working with this lyrics was so great. This song is so inspiring for all the people that listen to it, It makes the people think for a minute and start changing about how to make the world better, acepting to all the people who thinks different, and first of all respect them, without   looking at their sexual orientation.

Fernando González's insight:

To be honest, I have really enjoyed the experience working on this Lyric Video because it is a creative idea of writing a small phrase or word from the lyrics of the song in different type styles. Plus, it's also a great strategy to encourage young people to spread love, peace, kindness and acceptance.

We shouldn't discriminate against others just because they way they are. We have to support and respect other people's rights. So let's not let a few people who stand in our way wreck that. Its ok to be different because that's what makes you special. Just be yourself, that's it. :-)

Name of the song: Happy.  By: Pharrell Williams
Video lyric by:
Yenile Baptista:

The final workshop it’s about making a video lyrics of a song, the concept is “peace”

You can’t make a video about peace if you don’t know the meaning, so I searched it. I understood “peace is be ok with you, without problems, be in calm”.So, the song what I chose is Happy by Pharrell Williams

About the song and peace

This song represents  inner peace because when you’re happy with you, you are in peace. That’s why the song says “It might seem crazy what I’m about to say because when you’re happy you can make things that people doesn’t like or they think that’s wrong, but for you  it’s the correct.
The other part about this song “Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do“
When you find what you really want to do with your life, that’s the real inner peace.

About Graphic Design

The graphic concept of this video its simplicity and clarity, it’s only text but with a wallpaper yellow, because this color it’s a vibrant color and it represents the happiness.

I really enjoyed make this video, it’s was a good final project. Thanks for all prof ;)

Name of the song: Zombie.  By: Cranberries
Video lyric by: Kelly Castro:

Kelly Johanna C's insight:
This is the report about the Video lyric:

It is always good to think "life is beautiful" and "you have to see the good part of things" because it's true, there are many things that make our life wonderful but, I think, we have to be able to see farther than that. We must be aware of what's happening out there. We can't live in a bubble and don't pay attention to bad things, It has to be in balance. That's why I chose this song.

There are many "zombies", people without souls, that kill other people in order to "make peace". They have a strange concept of life, they think killing few persons they are going to succeed in life. That's not correct. They are taken from their moms and they grow up only watching the bad things of life and following orders. They think war is the only way.
Back to the point that i was talking before, in this lyric, they show us how people have been affected with the passing of the years thanks to the zombies that are controlling and damaging innocent people.

I chose to do a simple video lyric, black background with white letters in order to emphasize the strong words.

The letter of the song is simple but direct. the message is there. We have to stop living in a bubble and do something to stop this nightmare, this war. If we have to see the darker side of life to be aware of what's really happening and start helping each other to find another way to make peace, then, we have take off the eye bandage.

Name of the song: We Believe.  By: Good Charlotte
Video lyric by:
Sorybeth Contreras
Leonardo Rivero
Gabriel Timaure

Determinants: select a song, with a specific topic like; love, hope, peace or reference to this topics.

When we thought about the song that we will choose, we listened to “we believe” of Good Charlotte, and we thought that it will be a great choice because it’s about somebody that lost someone and other problems in life that probably happened to us. But the song it´s about hope and that its the true meaning of life, there will always  be problems but we have to think that there’s always somebody for you, right by your side, somebody to love, somebody to fight for. And also we have to think that love can do anything and can be the solution to our problems. The song is for all of us and it makes us think that no matter the problems because always we have to believe.

We listened to the song and immediately thought about that how life turns upside down and that's what we wanted to put in the video. The lyrics are put in differents parts of the video because that is what happen in real life, anything can happen and that's what we can represent.

The next step was picking colors and typography, we think about blue, sky blue and white. First we try to put blue that is a strong color to represent what happened in the video the more expressive parts, then we use sky blue because we wanted to have a contrast between all the colors, that's why the rest of the lyrics are sky blue, and the chorus the lyrics are white because is the most important part of the song and we can remember it because of the contrast and the important thing that the song wants to say to us. The typography is simple in some parts is San Seriff and other with Seriff we play with the sizes of this and make it look great.
