The Rose is a FEATURED MUSIC VIDEO at Mamapalooza!

 First: what is Mamapalooza? I call it the “Rocker Moms” site, but it’s much more than that. It is musician moms, author moms, filmmaker moms – creative moms of all kinds – coming together (often in collaborative ways) to highlight the challenges of motherhood and artistic endeavors. Obviously, this is a movement near to my heart, since I am mother to two young children (4 and 9). I’ve been affiliated with Mamapalooza for about three years; I guess you could say we’ve grown together (though I’d wager Joy and her peers have done a better job than I have).
 
The Making of a Music Video
 
I had finished my novel, True Surrender, and had recorded my first song in sixteen years…and when I first thought about doing a music video, I was curious: how would my passion for singing, writing and the power of the visual come together?
 
The short answer: with a lot of help!
 
A co-director/editor. Actors to enact scenes from True Surrender. Camera folks. Props. Makeup. So many details! The photo shoot itself. And then: sleepless nights as I watched scenes for hours – evaluating the best parts of each, looking for those seconds when the camera caught something special.
 
I could not have had a better experience creating my first music video. I was blessed with a great group of people to work with (I really enjoyed the creative interplay). This was truly a collaborative effort and I was both humbled and exhilarated. I love the video – and I hope you do, too. View it here.
