What About Us - The Music Video
Once we decided to make a music video to the song What About Us we started doing more research on the topic of genetically engineered crops.
We quickly realized that GMOs are a topic that is relevant to all of us. So we wanted to involve people at an early point.
Crowdfunding seemed to be a good way to get funding for the video while at the same time raising awareness. We didn’t reach our goal on Indiegogo, not even close. But the fact that we put word out about the project attracted a lot of people and companies that wanted to support us. Location fees were waived. All the equipment and props that would have been very expensive to rent were sponsored as well as most of the catering.
We shot the video on July 26 & 27, 2015 in an area called forest quarter in Lower Austria.
On the first day we shot in and around Weitra, Gu's hometown. The weather was great and we had a lot of people who came to join us and be part of the shoot.
On the second day we shot in the Arche Noah garden. When we arrived in the morning it was gray and rainy - not at all what we had planned. We had to quickly adapt and decided to shoot a part of the video inside the pavilion. In the afternoon the sun came out and we were able to continue in the garden.
