Filming Occupy Rooftops music video. Get involved!

2012 April 16

This Earth Day, you could go for a hike, or participate in a recycling event…. OR you could do something out of the ordinary and totally awesome: film a music video about solar power with a fun group of people! We need your help, your rhymes, your costumes and props, your arms flailing in our new music video for Occupy Rooftops, a theme about crowdsourced funding for community solar energy. Read about it here. The new video will feature rhymes by Sustainable John (see video at bottom) and a community chorus (that’s where you all get involved). Guest rhymes are welcome if you want to contribute some to the project. We’re gonna be climbing up ladders, getting on rooftops (they’re flat and safe), dancing, jamming, and posing with solar panels (you know you want to). We need at least 10-15 volunteers for our video. Will you help? Please sign up in this Google doc!

What: The filming of Occupy Rooftops music video

When: Saturday, April 21, 2012, 2-6pm

Who: anyone who is not camera shy and loves solar energy

Why: because crowd-funded solar is fun and it needs a music video and this is the coolest Earth Day event you’ve ever attended

Where: We will start at St Vincent de Paul at 2pm, 2260 San Pablo Avenue Oakland and then tentatively head next to the Asian Resources Center, 310 8th St for some more filming (both have awesome rooftop PV systems).
