41 cities create 1 videoclip

Today is Universal Children’s Day. To celebrate this important day children across the globe have used their collaborative creativity to share with you the following videoclip.

The song was written by Bas Kennis and Jim Stolze, based on dreams and ideas from children in 41 cities. Those kids were then asked to record their own video contributions. Amsterdam started this “video relay” and soon followed Tokyo, Soweto, New York, Paris, Salzburg, Nasa and many more. The concept of the video and the production were done by Elian Wils from BigShots.

On November 20th the videoclip premiered in 61 cities during TEDxYouthDay.
Music was recored at Grand Street Recording, New York. Vocals by Morley.
