  1. The River Directed by Marcus Beirowski, 2017 Winner 2017 Southsure Emerging artist of the year.

    Song written and performed by Janna Buchanan.

    This project was a course requirement for first year film (Bachelor of Screen Arts, Southern Institute of Technology).The brief was to create a music video with high production values which complemented or enhanced the artist’s image and style. The song, written and performed by music student Joanna Buchanan, spoke of forgiveness, redemption and a new life. Joanna referenced the film “The Shawshank Redemption” as a visual and tonal style, which appealed to her.
    My approach to creating a narrative for the song was to explore the two sides of the forgiveness: One from the person who committed ta wrong against another, and from the perspective of one who was wronged.

    The scenario involves a young man, Brian, who is imprisoned after killing a friend in a reckless driving incident. Having ruined his own life, and the lives of his friend’s family, Brian seeks forgiveness from Frank, his friend’s father. Frank is painfully bitter over his son’s death, and times has not healed his wounds. So, when Brian unexpectedly enters his world again being released from prison, Frank’s bitterness boils over into rage
