The SLAM TV 'HEART REMAINS OPEN Video Project
SLAM TV is teaming up with Australian hip hop artist JOELISTICS (Elefant Traks) Verb Studios and YOU to make an 'open source' video for his song 'Heart Remains'. We are inviting everyone to be involved in the making of the video by contributing your vision of Australia through this group.
HEART REMAINS is one of the standout tracks from Joelistics 2011 album 'VOYAGER'. Written while on the road, Joelistics has channeled his feelings about his homeland into this epic ode to what he calls "my version of 'I Love A Sunburnt Country'". From the ghosts of history to the cities of the present to the stars in the red center it paints a portrait of a thousand faces of Australia.

To create a truly diverse portrait of our country, SLAM TV is inviting the Australian community to contribute to this 'Open Source' video portrait. It's an open callout to all fans, artists and filmmakers or anyone with a camera or videophone to contribute their unique vision of Australia by uploading their own footage.
The final product will be a tapestry of video from across Australia, visualising the complex cultural landscape evoked by Joelistics portrait of the Australian psyche, edited by Tim Parish from Verb Studios (verbstudios.com.au)
