Memorial for CHESTER BENNINGTON
This project started with a digital message from over the big pond in the UK. “Lainey Rey” had been a huge supporter of the Implicit Team that I was involved with at that time. The beauty of digital is that the connections can be from very far away. We have stayed in touch over these past few years.
When an opportunity to pitch a video tribute to the family of the late Chester Bennington for an upcoming event, Elaine thought of us here in Canada. She was the instigator, and I took on the challenge, or I should say, WE at C!RCLE took on the challenge as a group.
I could not have done this project without the bravery and cooperation of a handful of people, who came forward in that moment to create something out of nothing. SuperDave really stepped up in the moment, with very little rehearsal knowing this was going to be captured in one evening, with the hopes of catching some decent footage, and a vision of a memorial tribute, that would show what we can do in this room, and also I think, to support my belief that we could actually make this project come to fruition from start to finish.
Then it was time to edit, and Jeff stepped up huge, to help get the film started, and try to accomplish what I felt would be a great representation for the event that would be aired for Chester’s birthday in March, I could not have completed the editing tasks without Jeff, and then also the help from Chris Taylor, getting the short film uploaded in time.
For me, this was the first time trying to record something for someone other than myself. A chance to assist on another project with another group of creative individuals, under my own steam, and the hope of some magic happening…
And it did.
