Kiesza is a platinum-selling NY-based singer-songwriter from Canada. Not too long ago, she released a powerful short film for her “Storm” single.
Kiesza – “Storm” music video
“Lights go out, days get longer, and silence shouts. Whispers creep these empty streets that once were loud. But I won’t ever be run over, no. I won’t ever be made silent, no. Confusion everywhere, waiting while the storming is coming.” – lyrics
Award-winning directors—Rocky Romano and Miranda Winters reached out to Kiesza to create a powerful short film to help frontline workers amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The video consists of an aerial view of the world in lockdown, over 100 filmmakers donated footage from 27 countries and drone footage of Kiesza on the empty shores of Toronto. Other countries featured in the music video include Australia, Brazil, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, India, Italy, Mexico, South Africa, United Kingdom, and more.
“I wrote ‘Storm’ late one night, while in lockdown, and posted it on my Instagram account the next day. From there everything snowballed, and I joined forces with Winters Rock Entertainment and Pond5 to create this incredible aerial video of the world during Covid-19. It has been so inspiring to me, to feel the unity that this pandemic has created. Covid-19 knows no borders, and as a result, it has brought us together as a world. And at the very least, everyone who made an effort to slow down the spread of the virus can walk out of this knowing that they saved a life.” – Kiesza
The short film, produced by Winters Rock Entertainment, will serve as a call to action for fans. Encouraging them to donate to Frontline Care, dedicated to providing rest and care units for frontline workers in the fight against COVID-19, via their donation site TeamStorm.org.
Frontline Care is a fiscally sponsored project by 501(c)(3) Paint The World. Kiesza will lead the initiative titled #TeamStorm that will drive fans to TeamStorm.org where they can donate to build JUPE REST units for frontline workers.
“During these challenging times, it is our mission to make a difference, to help our first responders, and to unite the world as a whole, as one.” – Rocky Romano & Miranda Winters, directors of “Storm”
The Frontline Initiative will implement healthcare worker rest units built by Jupe Health. Jupe Health works with hospitals, non-profits, and rural health communities. They provide rest and care units in the fight against COVID-19. Their rest units are created by rocket and electric vehicle engineers. Also, they were designed and furnished by America’s greatest designers. Furthermore, they are wrapped with artwork by some of the worlds’ top graphic artists via Amplifier.org.
