A Higher Mind

Early this year I collaborated in a project with the folks at HigherMind MediaWorks to produce a video supporting Bill McKibben and his work with 350.org.

I am pleased to have had yet another opportunity to compose and produce some more music for HigherMind.  This time it was for a promotional video launching Champlain College’s new $25 million campaign.    The great thing about HigherMind is that they really approach this kind of work with a whole new mindset.  They actually use an ethnographic approach using their clients’ communities to promote their vision and story.  As a result their production style is authentic, creative and personable; helping their clients to reach their target audiences and goals while doing so in a creative and energetic real-human-kind-of-way.  The kind-of-way that makes it feel good to live in Vermont.

Anyway, as always it was an honor and fun.
