Behind the Lens and Beyond: My Journey with The Cry Babies’ Musical Tribute

In the realm of creativity, where passion meets purpose, I found myself on a project that was more than just an artistic endeavor; it was a heartfelt tribute that intertwined my love for music, storytelling, and a cause close to my heart – feline welfare. This journey began with a song written by Robert Smith, brought to life in a new light by the Cry Babies, and through my lens, it transformed into a visual and auditory narrative that spoke volumes.

It was a personal mission, a story I needed to tell through my eyes, my camera, and my direction. I took on the roles of screenwriter, director, and cameraman, not just out of necessity, but out of a deep-seated desire to ensure that every frame, every note, and every movement captured the essence of the message we aimed to convey.

Collaborating with Igor Ferderber, we tried to capture the bond between humans and cats through the lens, creating a tapestry of visuals that complemented the soul-stirring melody of the song. Bernard Mihalic’s expertise in audio recording and production at studio “Podmornica” brought the musical piece to life, ensuring that every chord struck a chord in the hearts of the listeners.

The inclusion of the Walde Dancers added a layer of expressive beauty to the project, translating the music into a visual dance that narrated the song’s story without words.

It was not just about showcasing my work; it was about creating a platform that echoed my commitment to art, creativity, and making a difference in the world, especially for those who cannot speak for themselves – the cats we aimed to help through this project.

Working with SOS Cat, a Croatian Cat Rescue organization, added a layer of purpose to our creative journey. It was a reminder that art has the power to inspire change, to mobilize communities, and to make a tangible difference in the lives of others, including our feline friends. This project was a call to action, an invitation to the audience to join us in our mission to provide love, care, and a better future for stray and abandoned cats.

Reflecting on this journey, I am reminded of the power of collaboration, passion, and creativity. It was a testament to what can be achieved when we come together for a cause that transcends the art itself. This project was not just a musical cover; it was a message of hope, a narrative of compassion, and a testament to the impact we can make when we channel our talents towards making the world a better place.

As I look forward to my next project, I carry with me the lessons learned, the friendships forged, and the satisfaction of knowing that through our collective efforts, I hope that we made a difference. It’s a journey I am proud to have led, a story I was honored to tell, and a cause I will continue to support, one frame, one note, and one cat at a time.
