This is how I spent St. Patrick’s Day 2 years ago.
And here’s the finished product.
The Just Plain Folks (JPF) organization was founded by Brian Austin Whitney and currently represents over 50,000 musicians from 163 countries, making the JPF Awards the largest award show in independent music.
Whitney felt the music made by the “other 98%” of the music world often ignored by the mainstream televised music awards shows deserved its own recognition. After all, “We’re all in this together” states the organization’s motto.
“I’m very honored that Impossible Love was chosen as Best Video. This seems to be a very fitting award for the nature of this project,” says Benton. “Just about all of the materials and talent that went into making this video were donated. We pulled this together on a budget of roughly $400 and a group of very talented and generous people. This is a success for everyone involved.”
Heading the video’s creative team was director Brandon Nicholas, who at only 24-years-old operates Aurora Features in Los Angeles, CA, which just finished shooting the feature film Desert Son.
“Impossible Love” is one of the five original songs featured on Benton’s latest EP, Once, which was released in Spring 2009. Once is available at www.digstation.com/katelynbenton.
