American Recordings/Lost Highway: The Johnny Cash Project

Johnny Cash lives through you.

Published on

Editor's Pick

The video you see here is just a fleeting taste of what you'll find on The Johnny Cash Project, a "Living Portrait" of the Man in Black conceived by director Chris Milk and developer Aaron Koblin. The site invites visitors to contribute their one-of-a-kind renderings of a scene from the video, which will then be added to the project as part of an ongoing, always changing music video for "Ain't No Grave," Cash's final studio recording.

The creation of the online video adopts a similar approach to Aaron Koblin's Mechanical Turks Ten Thousand Cents project (also check out Koblin's CAT presentation) and also takes a crowd-sourced strategy to video-making similar to C-Mon & Kypski's More Is Less.
