The Johnny Cash Project

Chris Milk, the director behind the beautiful Arcade Fire viral video ‘Wilderness Downtown’ has another stunning project in development. This comes in the form of a video for Johnny Cash’s last song before his death ‘Ain’t no grave’ created through a new technique called ‘crowdsourcing’. The fittingly titled “The Johnny Cash Project” has a website that allows visitors to contribute to the video. The site selects at random 3 frames in which you choose one you would like to recreate. Then with a range of brush tools you are able to trace over your selected frame. Each frame looks very different to the next portraying the unique personal hand strokes of each individual. The result is simple and very unique. A truly fitting tribute to the ‘Man in Black’.
