Stand Tall Music Video

Project 2012-04-25 00:30:49 +1200


The amazing Sam RB has won the Olympic songwriting competition for an anthem to inspire New Zealand and our athletes, with her fantastic song Stand Tall. Unfortunately there's no budget for a decent music vid. A bunch of us are willing to do the work for nix, but we will still have costs in terms of camera and gear hire etc. We don't want Sam using her busking money that's intended for her next album, so want to provide a big busking platform through Pledge Me! You can help make something that will become a part of NZ's history!

You can find a bit of the back story and listen to the song here. Watch TV One piece here. Check out Sam RB here.

At long last, after a great deal of work and the wonderful support of our pledgers - here's the chance to see where your money went... this is the official NZ Olympic anthem music video - the wonderful Sam RB singing her song Stand Tall! Spread the link...

As far as I know this email will only be going to people who have pledged. I hope so because this is all very hush hush - the video hasn't been officially signed off yet. So don't tell anyone or you'll have to shoot yourself and then eat this email! But because of your kindness and goodness, we're letting you have a sneak preview of the music video for Stand Tall - a labour of love and hard graft. Only people who have the link to the youtube version can see it, so please don't spread it around! Otherwise we'll all be in trouble... this is a kind of low res version, but the real thing should be coming to a TV near you soon - enjoy!

We hit the tape!

Absolutely blown away that we've reached our goal with 6 days to go! Thanks so much to all you wonderful pledgers! You rock. We'll keep the campaign going to the end - any money raised above the $2000 will go to Sam RB's second album. Woohoo!

Filming with Sam

Here's what Sam RB had to say about the shoot for the Stand Tall music vid, which has only been made possible by all you wonderful pledgers:

"WOW what an amazing day! Starting with meeting Neil Finn at Roundhead, hanging with some wonderful friends on Queen St busking (congrats to Rawiri and Tamati for nailing the coin toss!), and finishing with an incredible time with Fairburn Schools exceptional kids. It will take me a long time to process what we managed to accomplish today. Thanks to the crew - Anton and Greg on camera; my broJohn Hanna for driving us all around Auckland; Mike Chunnfor being a special part of the day and speaking to the kids at Fairburn; Eddie Rayner for your time and input; Erin Dalton Steel for working with Team 32 in such a way that made this possible (you are an inspiration); Team 32 - i have no words, im speechless ♥; everyone that gave their time to support Stand Tall on Queen St (Tracey Sparksman,Jacob Belcher, Rawiri, Tamati, Vernon, Jun, Philip Patston, Hellie and Anna Caithness.....) AND Mike Riddell - when people believe in something and allow their imagination to decide whether or not its possible, wonderful things happen! Thank you for believing Mike ♥ Thank you to everyone for believing in Stand Tall. We are all in for a treat, i think this music video is going to be something really special..."i cant help but smile inside" (from Arthurs song) d=] ♥"

The Shoot!

02/05/2012 at 10:52 PM

Pleased to let you know that the video shoot will take place tomorrow, Friday 4th May. We'll be traipsing around Auckland with Sam RB shooting her in various locations. One of them is on Queen Street near Aotea Square, where Burger King is. We'll be filming Sam busking there from 11.45am-12.30pm. If you're free come along and be part of the action. All this is being funded by our Pledge Me drive - we just need $410 more before we get any of the money, so keep spreading the word and thanks so much for your tautoko!

Spread the word

30/04/2012 at 7:48 PM

Thanks to all you wonderful pledgers! We're now just on the brink of having reached 75% of our total. The way Pledge Me works is that we need to get to our goal in order to receive anything at all. Can you help by spreading the word about the project with your online contacts? The link is https://www.pledgeme.co.nz/Crowd/Details/175  You're all brilliant, and part of making something special.

Half way!

27/04/2012 at 9:16 PM

Well here we are on day two of the pledge project, and already half way to our goal of $2,000 - fantastic! Thanks so much for your generosity. Just to let you know that any money in excess of the goal will go towards the recording of Sam's second album. Keep spreading the word!

Rock on!

27/04/2012 at 4:37 AM
