When Jared Leto said that he wanted 2,000 different album covers – each featuring a fan portrait – we thought that will be amazing! After leaving the meeting at his highly productive recording-studio-office-webteam-in-a-home, we then thought, “how the hell are we going pull that off?” With the assistance of the savvy web team at Capitol Records a micro site was implemented. It’s unfortunate how many people found it hard to follow directions. After eliminating photos that either had no waiver or could not simply face the camera, we were left with about 1,000. The GIFs here represent about 500 of the covers.
