After School Sessions: ASCAP Foundation and America Scores








ASCAP and America Scores teamed up for the fourth year to present its national songwriting mentorship program, ASCAP Songwriter Residency @ America Scores.

I was honored when ASCAP asked me to document the three days kids from Palms Middle School worked with animator Roger Blonder and composer Shawn Clement. The students teamed up with the educators from America Scores and wrote a group poem on the meaning of "Love." Blonder worked with the students to envision, animate and record the digital imagery that was assembled into a poetry-based experimental film.

I created a slideshow with highlights from the three days I was there. You can view it below or click here.



The completed experimental film was put on youTube and there was three versions of the film (same footage, different music written by Shawn). I liked Version 2 best. Click below or here to view.
