The Johnny Cash Project

See the full project at The Johnny Cash Project

This is a project by Aaron Koblin, with director Chris Milk, that is, of course, completely amazing. He's the brillant mind behind The Sheep Market, Flight Patterns, Radiohead's House of Cards video, and Arcade Fire's The Wilderness Downtown video, among others.

This latest project again uses the crowdsourcing method of The Sheep Market and Ten Thousand Cents where participants are asked to create small bits of the project, that when put together create something spectacular. The Johnny Cash Project is a collective effort to create the final Johnny Cash music video for his final studio recording - Ain't No Grave. Participants draw their own portrait of Johnny Cash from a still within the video creating an always evolving video and images are always able to be added. Over 250,000 images have been drawn by people from 172 countries - and this number is always growing.
