I think many of us who were born in the 80s dreamed of one day starring in our own music video, playing an instrument or singing our favourite songs. With the invention of YouTube more than a decade ago, that dream became aseasy as turning on your camera and recording.
The vocal group Resonate at Mennonite Collegiate Institute in Gretna has just released two music videos created with the help of Jay Siemens Media Productions.
MCI’s Music Director Rick Heppner-Mueller stopped by the studio to share the story behind the music videos, and the effort it took to put them together.
We also asked Rick about the day the first video was shot “Pavane for a True Musical Prince”. It featured the group standing in a wintery looking field near the corner of Highway 75 and Highway 14, with wind turbines in the background, hoar frost covering the landscape. It is truly a beautiful scene.
The second video, which was released Monday, March 5th, is to the track “People Get Ready” and features a train/railway theme. You can watch both of them below!
