Darrell Cole – BOATS.
A life in 3 minutes music video
How can you show a lifetime in 3 minutes ? This is the question we had to tackle for Darrell Cole’s BOATS. (Based On A True Story). Inspired by a sequence out of The Simpsons where we see Homers life flash by a picture a day, we decided to do the same. Using this “a picture a day” format we showed a young version of Darrell living his life in front of the camera. Living in Sierra Leone during the Civil War there were a lot of hardships Darrell and his family had to face. This became an important part of the video.
Hearing the story of the artist and researching on the terrible war in Sierra Leone this video was very difficult to make, but it had to be made!
