THE LYRIC PROJECT is an anthology love letter to music. We have asked people to pick their favorite song, any genre, that means the most to them. Next, make an audio recording of them reading the lyrics and submit that with an explanation of why they picked it. Then we interpreted and shot short films based on their song choice.
