Power struggles upon a stage. Time lapses. Papers fly. An uneasy crowd moves to the streets to call for climate action.
Fantastic music with a climate outreach agenda = beautiful harmonies and a loving message. Did we mention we’re pro project managers?
The video captures the song's 3 key messages. A theater audience watches a play that shows: how we contribute to climate change; that there is still hope; and that taking action is needed. The audience realizes this and starts to trickle out. Empowered, they take to the streets and march for change.
Having shot and produced hundreds of music videos I'm keen to use what I know, and try some new things, to make something new and unique!
Danton & Heather are genuinely concerned citizens. They rallied last fall in NYC and came home with a goal. Their professionalism, talent, and ability to produce is outstanding. We plan and organize in the same logistical manner, and we have similar outlooks on life and the world. Shared goal: Help raise climate awareness through art... & have fun!
Heather spent 5 years as a climate change outreach professional. She's managed online communities and social media galore. She's a connector and sought after public speaker for the cause. She’s totally got this. In addition to being a sharp-140 character-shooter, she’s got the network to back up the mission: province-wide sustainability practitioners in dire need of musical inspiration. In 2013, her climate action cohort outed her as "British Columbia's Climate Chanteuse" and have been asking her to serenade sustainability conference-goers ever since.
With family and a musical network spread across BC and Alberta, Danton has no shortage of reach. He's played across Canada, in Europe, Japan and NYC. Having spent the last 10 years in Victoria's music scene, Danton can't take a quick trip anywhere without being asked "so where's the music at?" He is also known as a musician in the provincial government's natural resource sector. With exposure to hundreds of colleagues there, his musical adventures regularly spice up cubical land.
What happens when you cross two totally in sync, super organized creatives with a serious mission? No time wasted. With the efficiency of two silent wheels gliding freely past stagnant lines of traffic, Heather and Danton know how to make life and projects happen. In the last 15 months, they've: *organized & promoted a benefit concert; *hosted a team for an international climate action #Hack4good; *run a successful Kickstarter campaign; and *conceptualized, composed & produced a 7 song album. (That's the short list.)
What will 2030 look like? Will we all be wearing plastic monocles to protect our eyes from the wind and bucket hats to protect us from atmospheric rivers? If so, Jack has us prepared... what do you think? Parenting a 10 year old means we get a good dose of reality often. And the reality is: don't take life too seriously! At the same time: take it seriously! Our project has Jack's future in mind. This is a personal story.
