In October of 2012 Hurricane Sandy hit the Northeast causing more than $50 billion in damage. To commemorate Sandy and to raise awareness about the importance of conservation and living sustainably, we created a music video with photos and video of the storm and relief effort, including a timeline of events and powerful quotes. The song was written the day after more than of six feet of water surged into our neighborhood in Red Hook, Brooklyn, knocking out power for three weeks.
Official selection and screened at the Red Hook International Film and Video Festival 2013
