Help create a video with Rachelle’s music

We need your help to create a video out of one of GCPC music director Rachelle Risling’s musical pieces, “Sophisticate”, the musical meditation for the June 21 worship service. We have the audio, and we would like to turn it into a video by adding a montage of images of animals, plants, nature or landscapes. Here’s how you can help: 

  1. Listen to Rachelle’s piece “Sophisticate” at the worship service link above or directly on SoundCloud (or listen to the piece on this page; it’s embedded just below this numbered list)
  2. What kind of plant, animal, nature or landscape image(s) does it conjure up for you?
  3. All images must be in the public domain, be Creative Commons licensed (CC), or ones that you have taken yourself.
  4. Go find an image. There are many resources on the web, but one of the best is the Wikimedia Commons (everything there is public domain, or CC licensed).
  5. Submit your photos or photo links to us at [email protected] by Friday, July 24.
  6. We’ll pick the most suited to the project with Rachelle’s input and create the video for release by August 14.
