New York Magazine, the definitive publication for New Yorkers is stepping into the world of online video. While they are open to lots of new ideas, they are very much seeking videos about New York City. If you read the magazine, you can see what kinds of stuff the like - interesting, a bit off beat, creative, intelligent. NYVS has a huge army of content creators so I'm inviting you, asking you, to submit or create any videos that you think might fit the bill. The magazine is ready to both publishcreated by michael
Hello & Welcome to my Group.
"A human being is part of a whole, called by us the 'Universe', a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." Albert Einstein
I believe that every individual has an obligation to act to benefit society at large. This responsibility can be passive, by avoiding engaging in socially harmful acts, or active, by performing activities that directly advance social goals; be it little or large.
My small contribution to this endearing task is to try and produce Social Responsibility Video’s for the benefit our society as a whole.
For my first video entitled ‘Spare A Thought For Hunger,’ I decided to use the end credit song from the Constant Gardner; a masterpiece from the Album "En Mana Kuoyo" (1993) sung by Ayub Ogada. This song captivated me from the first instance that I heard it and I couldn’t get it out of my mind. Later I decided that I would like to use it in some way in my work. All the visuals for the video were sourced from the internet. I do not take any credit for their creative licence. I only take credit for their treatment in my conceptualisation of my social responsibility video in trying to convey my message.
In the near future it is hoped that as I progress with my journey of learning with NYVS I will be producing my own shot Social Responsibility videos.
