Our story centers on the theme of intimidation & our collective response. It depicts a troubled woman inspired by a brave, young girl and singer who leads a movement to empower people to stand up for themselves and proclaim “aint gonna break me”!
Andrea Nixon lays twang,croon & quiver atop simple yet profound stories delivering them with enthusiasm, authenticity & a fresh perspective.
"You Didn't Make Me" is an anthem written to empower. The song weaves together the stories of three different characters who face intimidation. The three are united by one strong declaration, "You didn't make me, you ain't gonna break me!"
Passion for what you do is key. I am an experienced film director who loves telling powerful stories through beautiful imagery and passion.
Andrea Nixon writes captivating, story-driven songs. The strong melodies provide the backdrop for important messages and critical questions, like how does one speak their truth in the face of intimidation and criticism? This music video is an opportunity to make a visually stunning & inspiring representation illuminating the story behind this song.
Our video will incorporate many members of Edmonton's phenomenal music community to honor their amazing contributions to our musical landscape.
Beginning in September 2015, I will use the video as a jumping off point in a voluntary lecture series for elementary schools, who would like to host a talk on the the topic of self empowerment and boundary setting.
We are ecstatic to represent a local clothier in our project. Welsh's is independently owned and has been operating locally since 1908 proving to be a vital and resilient member of our community.
There are countless ghost towns in Alberta, each with a story. Once a booming train town, Hairy Hill was largely abandoned after a crippling fire. A few locals clung to the ground they were raised on & stayed put. We are excited to breathe new life into their old stomping ground.
Our film community LOVES what we do! Passionate, professional crews excel on every project! We will employ 25 crew members to bring this project to life. The result will be something well worth watching.
Our crew is very experienced working with top notch gear & know how to use it to tell the story. We will be filming on the Sony FS700 and the Sony F3 and using the Movi for stabilization. We will create the atmosphere using HMI's, grip set ups and proper camera support.
Andrea Nixon’s style is vintage country. We have received the support of local clothier, Welsh’s Western Wear to provide our costuming. This will ensure an authentic & consistent visual testament to classic, country style.
