Sweet Lullaby – 'Pájaro'

in music •  9 months ago  (edited)


For Nonna Jean

Every now and then, I encounter moments that invite a bit more careful attention and presence than simply pressing the shutter. This was one of those...

Nothing too complex – just a gorgeous woman in a stunning setting playing the sweetest lullaby for her beloved grandmother (who passed away just days after we filmed this.)

Hope you enjoy!


My lovely friend, Gabriella – filmed at the NW Songwriter's Retreat in Tumwater, WA in October 2019.
I kept the editing reasonably simple, yet ensured I'd properly recorded the audio using an H4N Zoom. I also had her run through it a few times to be sure I had enough material to splice out unwanted camera-shake (this was entirely hand-held) and add just a bit of dynamic movement to draw the viewer in.

Simple, effective, beautiful and captivating; that goes for the song as well as, judging by your description, the video. My condolences to Gabriella, who is a gorgeous woman indeed, captured beautifully by another gorgeous woman; thanks again for sharing the beauty Zippy 💖🙏🏼
