CNN A Matter Of Trust

Nov 12, 2020

Following the 2020 US election, Syn worked on a new CNN piece that aims to inspire audiences to rebuild broken bonds and believe in the good in each other. Black and white still images of reported moments and the anchors who convey them are supported with Syn’s original rearrangement of Billy Joel’s 'A Matter of Trust'. Whilst work started in January, as the pandemic spread around the world, everything was put on hold. In July, CNN decided to push forward, shooting the visuals in LA, then Syn recorded a string ensemble remotely in Macedonia, piano in Los Angeles, and then the final mix in Tokyo.

Sound and image are brought together to remind us that trust is the foundation of true achievement.
