This Spring, our MAM Family has contributed to some pretty amazing projects working to evolve a brighter world on our big blue marble.
Yessian helped kick things into gear with their work for #ClearThePitch, promoting land mine removal from soccer pitches with DCA Mine Action and Grey for Good.
And both Yessian and Marmoset helped create PSAs for the Metro Detroit area.
Marmoset’s music in the short doc “Home” (narrated by Detroit native J.K. Simmons) intones the front lines of Flint’s breathtakingly resilient community, caring deeply for one another while coping with horrifically callous choices made by their state and local governments.
Meanwhile, Yessian shares the local love for it’s beloved Detroit, helping create PureMichigan’s inspiring new “Story of Detroit” celebrating the Motor City’s can’t-stop-won’t-stop mojo.
Marmoset’s on a role with feel-good promos, actually. Check out this fresh laundry list of light and love:
– “Anna’s Story” (GitHub): How one young grrl coder’s access to creating innovative projects (with platforms like GitHub) could lead to great interplanetary feats as NASA’s brightest computer science star.
– “Finding Aurora” (The Film Artist): Stunning time-lapse images of the burning skies over Iceland after a major solar storm. Before they even say it, you’re thinking, “Damn. Earth is such a crazy beautiful planet. What can we do to save it from ourselves?”
– “The Ride” (Levi’s): Follow London musician and poet James Massiah as he pumps his way from gig to gig via bicycle for the night. “It’s a bit like time travel.” He who bikes rules the night.
– “#KindaAwesome” (Kind): Kind Snacks take their clever name to a new level, with a pay-it-forward campaign that’s positively delicious.
– “Hold Your Horses” (Purina): Horses. Hug them. (Apparently you can do that if you have a horse.) Warm fuzzies for everyone! Gotta love a horse hug. #watchyourfeet
– “Expeditions” (Google): What if school kids could “travel” the world with virtual reality? Watch geography classes suddenly take giant frog leaps around GoogleEarth. Visionary.
– “Dogs” (TD Ameritrade): Remember those hilarious underwater dog photos that came out a couple years back? Meet photographer Susan Hamill and how she dove into her hobby and came out financially independent. Bonus: slo-mo videos of her “subjects” swimming.
– “3rd and Goal” [YETI]: OMG. This April Fools’ profile about a (real) ex-NFL player with his (seriously questionable) small-batch “Melk” creamery had us dying. And where in the world did Jacob Shipley’s acting chops come from? Somebody get him on SNL STAT. Dead pan never looked so good.
