Water Take the plunge Images are immersed in the currents of the deep, drenching them in vibrant, fluid animation
Earth A planetary picture proliferation Photos bloom into space, an abstract homage to mother Earth
Fire Some like it hot Spicy heat, flames of passion, infernos of infatuation turn photos up a notch

The technology takes into account every nuance of a song the genre, structure, energy, rhythm, instrumentation, and vocals. Videos are produced in widescreen format and can be emailed, embedded on any Web site, shared via social network and mobile device, or downloaded in DVDquality formats for display on computers, televisions, and even large projection screens.
