The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus

“This is precisely the kind of project John Lennon would have loved.”- Yoko Ono Lennon

We have talked about it long time ago...The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus is a non-profit state-of-the-art mobile audio and HD video recording and production facility. In its seventeenth year, with the very newest technology and gear, the Bus continues to be dedicated to providing young people with tours of the studios and participation in free songwriting and multimedia production workshops. With the assistance of three on-board engineers, students learn how to write, perform, record, and produce original songs, produce and shoot music videos and documentaries and complete a broadcast quality music video – all in one day! (from website)
We will feature a few very nice older videos and some newest ones in the next post - all uploaded by the johnlennonbus

"A Love So Deep" by The Lovelight Messengers
"Georgia will forever be on our minds, and one of the first things we'll think about will be this session. Not only did we have an incredible group of students to work with, but notorious piano pro Chuck Leavell was around to contribute to the song and make it EXTRA special" (johnlennonbus)

"I'm In Luv Witchu" by Fernando Pullum School of Performing Arts (Los Angeles, CA)
On October 12th 2010, the bus stopped at the Fernando Pullum School of Performing Arts. We worked with an incredibly talented group of students and shot a video for their track entitled "I'm in Luv Witchu". Check it out. It's pretty cool. Wooty. (johnlennonbus)

"We Are One" Toronto International Film Festival
"The Toronto International Film Festival has struck gold yet once again but this time it didnt come via red carpets or silver screens. Instead the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus made the trip across the border to collaborate with students from Remix and Shoot With This to produce a simple request: Equality. After putting the finishing touches on the track the students hit the rooftop of CTV to proclaim their message to the world."(johnlennonbus)
