    VIDEO PORTRAIT! As a lover of music and the study of consciousness, director Elisa Da Prato is of course a lover of faces. As an ongoing project she creates hyper-real video portraiture: one face + one song. See Silvia with Schubert (http://vimeo.com/23228388), or Jason with Edith Piaf (http://vimeo.com/17814194). Each piece is a joyful and tender examination of the nuance of gesture, and the mind-map of face. They are of course photographed by the phenomenal James Fideler and if you select this reward, Elisa & James will take your portrait. They are incredibly personal, odd, and beautiful; just like you. You will get to keep it forever and so will your grand kids. Plus credit in the film as "major brain donor", membership to ISSUE Project Room, BRAIN MOVIE & BRAIN CD as listed above.
