I started my Pull Up the Covers series a year ago today. In the videos, I play a cover song in front of a green screen and drop it on top of a random bed photograph that I find on the internet. This was a really fun project. “Because Monday mornings can be hard, we will pull up the covers.” Get it? It’s kind of a joke. I play a cover song in an imaginary bed and you pull up your covers. It’s a double use of the word cover and it’s rather clever. Really, it is.
I recorded about a dozen videos in this series and then ran out of interesting beds to use. I was surprised but it’s very difficult to find quality photos of beds that are free to use. I can find beds that don’t look good. I can find lots of beds that include people in their underwear. I can find perfect beds that come with a price tag. I thought about asking for submissions from my community but Mrs Brother Jack pointed out that could get creepy.
I would love to resume a cover song series but I’m not sure that it will include bed photographs. I am thinking maybe I will try something with a couch. I enjoyed learning how to use the green screen. That is probably a story for another time.
Pull up the covers, brothers and sisters.
