Over the holiday weekend I received a phone call at about 11:21 pm Saturday night. In todays society I was surprised just to receive a phone call, and assumed it would be a pocket dial with loud music and screams coming on the other end taking in to account that the person had the next day off. Quite the contrary, it was a client of mine who I did some video work for in the past calling for hail marry in the fourth quarter with six seconds left on the clock. His request? He wanted to do something for the Fourth of July on Monday and had a very creative concept that I couldn't turn down.
Reginald Ellison a try-county saxophonist couldn't help but become overwhelmed with recent news stories and felt it ironic that for a weekend society can forget its issues and celebrate as a whole rather then divided. With that he made a musical decision to play the National Anthem, except this time in a minor key. So after he spent Sunday afternoon in the studio recording his rendition, we met in West Palm and let me take creative control.
I have to say it was an honor to be apart of this project, and it truly humbles me to receive the responsibility to bring his ideas to fruition.
