Video Lyrics for Peace Part 2

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:

 “Be the Light” by  One Ok Rock
Video Lyrics by:
Carlos Delgado:

Carlos Delgado's insight:
The song I used for my Video Lyric is “Be the Light” of One Ok Rock. The song is about the hardships that Japan had overcome to rise again from the horrible earthquake and tsunami that shook the region of Tohoku in 2011. It shows how strong the Japanese people are, and how they could endure an earthquake that left all the region devastated.
Even though it was such a hard trial for Japan, they rose up faster than any other nation would have. The key to their success? Cooperation. They stood together, with the help of many countries that helped them, and they were able to rebuild everything in only 6 months.
With cooperation, it is much easier to achieve peace because with it, everybody works for that one who will help them in the future, giving us all the opportunity to live in a happy and harmoniously way.

Graphic Description: The Typography used in at the start of the video is all sober and sad because of the depression of the singer, unable to find a reason or who to blame for the disaster. In short scenes we can see pictures of the affected areas and persons, in grey scale because of the sadness of them. Then as the singer realizes that all it takes to rebuild their home and achieve peace is to stand up and cooperate with every helping hand, the typography becomes more firm and taller. In the last scenes we can see a rise of colors in the pictures shown, encouraging the people to be the light that will help their country or society to achieve peace and prosperity.

What a wonderful World by Louis Armstrong
Video Lyrics by:
Rafael Hernández

This song was chosen for its emotional message, which demonstrates peace and coexistence of human beings. How beautiful the world and nature. The love and affection of the people together. We illustrate and create a video based on these messages, we create an animated video for their music.

Rafael Ramos's insight:
The song describes some of the beautiful and wonderful things about our world and only focuses on the good things about it, in a means to encourage people to love and enjoy all the special little things about our world, which also implies the idea of getting rid of all violent and destructive behavior and/or state of mind. Plus it uses alliteration on the lead phrase “What a wonderful world” to emphasize the importance of this idea.

In our video, we decided to base our graphic content mostly on what is being narrated throughout the song, given its very detailed and descriptive nature.

Song: Midnight by coldplay
Video Lyrics by:
Andy Rodriguez:

Andy Rodriguez's insight:
The typeface used was Seriff. It was used to preserve the minimalism of the song and video, a video
cover of the video was recorded and used to give impetus to this video, besides that makes it different.

The song "midnight coldplay" talks about following your path until light; it's a different way of saying that we have to stay calm during the troubles because after PEACE arrives.
Animations were simple for the lyrics because I think it looks cleaner this way and more aesthetic, I filmed this video with my sister, we worked hard in the video, We went to Falcon on a trip to record it and the result was very good.
The black and white colors were used for the background and the lyrics to preserve the tranquility, peace and relaxation that produces the video.

Song: Scare away the dark - Passenger
Video Lyrics by:
Mariangela Velasquez:

Peace can bee seen differently for every other person, in my opinion peace is kind of an utopic idea, and not because it is impossible to reach but because it is so simple and easy that we think it is too good to be true. There has always been said that the only way to solve a problem it is to look for the cause of it. And this song talks a little about it. It talks about the way we behave, of how sometimes we let the routine of the daily life pull us apart from our families, how we pay too much attention to things that aren't worth it just so that we don't see that selfishness of human kind is taking over the world and it is leaving nothing meaningful for other generations. And it demonstrates it through the most simple examples so that any person who hears it can understand it in their own way.

Descriptive memory:
For this video, I used two types of fonts both of san serif type. One is in bold form and the other one in it's thin font, this way a balance is created between the use of them. For the background I created an image of a city landscape, in wich the most noticed aspect is the sky and the free birds flying around it, and the colors that can be seen there are mostly blue, black and white . With this what I am trying to create is the idea of stormy "normal" city with its regular chaos but with a very big quiet a relaxing sky above it that no many people seems to notice nowadays. And in between them there is the lyrics of the song playing.
