This would be relativly short, about 5 minutes, the length of the song The Ballad of Frankie Lee and Judas Priest by Bob Dylan. I don’t want to call it a music video (though it is), this was a project I wanted to film back when I was taking a film making class in Tennessee. But I neither had the talent, the number of friends required for this, the infinite amount of time or the resources. The song will be playing in the foreground the whole time, there will be no other spoken dialogue besides what is said in the song, there will be no extra sound effects of any kind. I’ll just be describing the shots along with dictating the lyrics to the song for this. If Bob Dylan sings a line of dialogue, the character would mouth the words at the same time. The “talking” scenes will resemble an old silent film. It will all take place in Nashville, circa 2002.
