I Lived by One Republic featuring Cathey Armillas and Portland OR Bridges

“I swear I did it all, I swear I lived”

Cathey Armillas (http://catheyarmillas.com) is a speaking and marketing expert from Portland, OR.

John Chen (http://geoteaming.com) is a team building expert from Seattle, WA.

John and Cathey have been friends since 2009 and have collaborated on multiple projects including speaking engagements, conferences and consulting.  They started working on lip-sync videos for their love of music.

They chose “I Lived” because the two share a special friendship that has helped each other’s lives.  They both strongly believe that we need to live life to the fullest every day.

Cathey chose to highlight Portland OR’s bridges as she has a goal to walk as many bridges as possible.  She has an open invitation for anyone to contact her and walk a Portland bridge with her.

They hope you enjoy this version of “I Lived” and that it inspires you to live life to the fullest every day.

Video Highlights

  • This epic shoot took ~3 days to shoot and another 3+ to edit.
  • In the first shoot on the dock, the JBL Flip 2 speaker fell out of Cathey’s back pocket.  Cathey dove on her knees as the Flip rolled off the dock, she caught it just as the speaker went under water.  Despite advertising as water resistant, the speaker battery will no longer hold a charge.
  • This video was shot with an iPhone 7 Plus with a Lanparte gimbal, GoPro 3 & 4’s and a DJI Phantom 4 drone.
  • John flew 5 Phantom 4 batteries in a single day during the shoot for over 100 minutes of aerial footage.
  • Drone features includ Point of Interest for circling shots and Line Of Sight on the bridge shots so the drone could move and turn in a straight line.
  • Cathey finally picked up on Director John’s hints to over-play the lyrics so they look good on lip sync.
  • Cathey forgot to bring a towel and a change of clothes, so she had to drive home soaking wet after the jump shot.
  • The dragon boat that passed by cheered Cathey on to jump off the dock.
  • Yes, the Willamette River is COLD!

Lyrics

Hope when you take that jump

You don’t feel the fall

Hope when the water rises

You built a wall

 

Hope when the crowd screams out

It’s screaming your name

Hope if everybody runs

You choose to stay

 

Hope that you fall in love

And it hurts so bad

Heeeeyyyyyy

 

The only way you can know

You give it all you have

And I hope that you don’t suffer

But take the pain…

 

Hope when the moment comes

You’ll say

I…I did it all

I…I did it all

 

I owned every second that this world could give

I saw so many places

The things that I did

Yeah, with every broken bone

I swear I lived

 

Hope that you spend your days

But they all add up

And when that sun goes down

Hope you raise your cup

Oh, oh

I wish that I could witness

All your joy and all your pain

But until my moment comes

I’ll say

I…I did it all

I…I did it all

 

I owned every second that this world could give

I saw so many places

The things that I did

Yeah, with every broken bone

I swear I lived

 

Oh whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh

 

With every broken bone

I swear I lived

With every broken bone

I swear I

I…I did it all

I…I did it all

I owned every second that this world could give

I saw so many places

The things that I did

Yeah, with every broken bone

I swear I lived

Oh whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh

I swear I lived

Oh whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh
