Peeps, have a look of this vid if you have the time. This is an effort by our local artistes for unity, entitled "Here In My Home". I first got wind of this effort from my friend Tobiyama. Not long after that, I received some emails from Pete Teo and also an invitation from him on facebook to join the "Malaysian Artiste for Unity Group"
Apparently this initiative was started by Pete Teo. He got together a group of local artiste to collaborate in this effort to make an anti-racism national unity song and video. The contingent is made of tonnes of people and it included filmmakers, dancers, singers, producers, musicians, actors, entrepreneurs, designers, footballers, activists, celebrities, students and apparently a florist too :).
The most wonderful part of it all, these people are taking zero (0) pay for their efforts. Sure or not, you'd ask. Hey...not everything is about money you know :)
Anyway, have a look at the video for yourself here.
or you can click here also.
If you would like to know more about the people involved in the video, both in it and behind it, do pop over at their website Hello and read all about them.
My deepest respect for all those involved in this, especially Pete :)
Mail to all ..from Malaysian Artistes for Unity...
"sorry for the late notice. we did not know this until now. the 'making of here in my home' will screen on astro's hitz tv tonight (friday 23rd) (channel 705) at 8pm. for those who can't be there, the program will be repeated on 25th may (coming sunday 8pm) and 29th may ( coming thursday 5.30pm). there is only so much you can say in a 4 minute pop song and video - so 'the making of' will give you much more depth about the mafu project and the thinking behind it. catch it if you can, and tell all your friends to watch it!!"
