Conscious Connections is a filmed, documentary-style interview series. In each episode, we allow our subject to lead the conversation in whatever direction they wish, with the freedom and security to get real. At the end of each interview, our subject suggests the next person for us to interview, creating a path of connections that we trace throughout the episodes. At the end of the journey, a local songwriter and a local artist will create a song and specialty art piece unique to each season.
Each edition of the Connections book focuses on the people of a different region. We interview 10 individuals from the area, allowing them to lead the conversation in whatever direction they wish, with the freedom and security to get real. Each one chooses the next person for us to meet, and we follow these chains of connections. The end result is a coffee table book filled with portraits and quotes of 50-100 individuals in the region.
Songwriters Connected consists of: a series of filmed performances as well as a music live event in each region.
Songwriters Connected offers a wide scope of a city’s music scene through short daily videos.
We film regional songwriters as they perform a song live, and we post the lyrics along with the video.
We are proud to present, in conjunction with This is Noteworthy, pro-bono mentoring workshops teaching students interview, film, and conscious living techniques. Students will learn how to interact and interview with intentionality and presence and how to use film equipment. Connecting will allow students to celebrate themselves and each other through the arts. Through film and interviews, participants will highlight the importance of human interactions and conscious living.
*This is an experiment. An expose. A journey. A one-on-one conversation/listening session takes place between a person and us. There are no talking points + no agenda. It is recorded. From whatever happens in this conversation, and based solely on this conversation, the person then has 24 hours to pick the next person to have their own conversation with us. After 5 people have created a chain, a theme emerges. What do you resonate with? What did you need to hear? Who do you need to listen to? Follow the process here.
