Danni Reviews a Short Film and Music Videos
I am happy to announce that we have another New Guest Blogger, Danielle Hatfield! Danni is from Alabama and is currently a college student studying Marketing. She is also a talented singer! I think I first discovered Danni when she entered Cree Inglees Idol Search competition on YouTube. Check out the excellent singing videos on her YouTube channel! One of my favorites is this video of Danni singing Amy Winehouse's hit "Rehab".
In her first guest blog post for us, Danni reviews three videos. One is an award winning short student film about memories and the other two are videos of cover songs by Rihanna and Bruno Mars.
See what Danni has to say and watch the videos she discusses!
But first, The News!
Now, here is Danni's first Guest Blog post!
Our brain holds the time capsule, in which our memories and stories from our past are held. Some of our stories shortly fade away, or are merely just not visited often enough to remember the details. One of my science teachers once told my class statistics on happiness, and how a new home can only bring someone full joy for only around six months before the person is unsatisfied again. However, pictures…. pictures hold those memories so that they may not be forgotten or lost in time. Photographs are the boost our memory needs to remember fully. He said pictures make people happy forever because of the special memory of something in our life, such as family. The experience your mind takes on the journey of life cannot be replaced with material things. Pictures can also bring happiness to those on a bad day because they can remember a happy moment in time.
This is one of my favorite short films. I often find myself visiting to watch it several times a week. Here is Memories - written, directed and edited by Radoslaw Sienski:
We Found Love
BuskerOneK is a small two person band, that covers every song from the UK's number 1 hit, each week. The also have free original music to download at http://buskerone.bandcamp.com/, and you can see all of their other covers at http://www.youtube.com/BuskerOneK.
They cover "We Found Love" by Rihanna FT. Calvin Harris, and it is personally the best cover that I've seen of this song! They both give an amazing performance, and I also find if very intriguing that she plays the violin and sings during the video. Its very obvious that they are very passionate about their music. I can't wait to hear more from them.
Here is BuskerOneK with their cover:
It Will Rain
Kelsey Lynn is a beautiful young girl with an amazing talent for playing the guitar and singing. She puts a soft touch on the song "It Will Rain" by Bruno Mars. She really puts emotion into this song, making it all the more real. She covers many other videos on YouTube as well. You can check out her covers at http://www.youtube.com/KelseyLynnMusic. You can also follow her on twitter at @kelseylynnmusic.
