FURTHER DETAILS:

We invite all interested parents to have your children take part in our next Empty Hands music video for a song Nimo and Daniel Nahmod have created called “Superhero

We are requesting parents and teachers from around the world to film any child or adult doing small or large acts of kindness in their community, local town or city (Some ideas to the right).

Obviously we hope to get some fun and inspiring footage for the music video, of our little superhero’s making a positive difference in the world, but most importantly, we hope this encourages us as a collective to be more pro-active in doing more small acts of kindness in our daily lives. So really we would want you to do this because it can be a beautiful activity with your children, instead of only to be in a music video.

If you are interested in taking part in this global music video, here are the next steps:

NEXT STEPS

1)      Listen to the very rough version of the song we have created:

https://soundcloud.com/emptyhandsmusicnimo/superhero-nimo-patel-and-daniel-nahmod/s-ek8cO

2)      Decide which acts of kindness you are going to film your child or children doing in your neighborhood, community or city.

3)      Then, take your child to that area and let them have fun being kind, helping others through their acts of kindness.

4)      Have the Videographer take various angles of footage of your child/children doing the acts of kindness (Some wide shots and some close ups of the child/children and the recipients). Only 1 to 2 minutes of footage is required. Thus the activity itself doesn’t have to be too long. But you can do a longer activity and just send the best footage. 

5)      Enjoy the acts of kindness! And continue to do more :)

6)      Have the videographer send us the best footage by September 15th, 2019.
