2020 Video Competition, Listening, and Collaboration

CID Video CompetitionPlaying for Change. (2011, May 26). Gimme Shelter. YouTube.

In these days of instructions to “shelter in place,” this video seems a particularly appropriate fit, and a reminder that none of us is facing the COVID-19 pandemic alone.

It is in the shelter of each other that the people live
Irish proverb

Playing for Change has produced many videos, among them The Weight. For that, they also produced a first and second video describing what they did and how they made it work. All of these videos were produced long before Coronavirus, but they seem particularly appropriate today. It’s especially the two “behind the scenes” videos that may be of interest to any students working on a video for the CID Video Competition,  in these times when the simple act of getting together for a group project becomes impossible.

Playing for Change is a movement created to inspire and connect the world through music. The idea for this project came from a common belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people.”
