The Pitch

Community Relevancy

Background

#ThankYou  Please use this tag when sharing the music video (after launch) on social media. This hash tag represents sending a positive message of gratitude for different cultures that can come together and collaborate to create something inspiring and beautiful instead of creating conflict.

#TheThankYouProject  This hash tag represents this overall project from development of the concepts through production and everything that we are doing to spread the positive messages that are contained within it.

#MusicIsMedicine  Medicine to heal the body, mind and soul are central to First Nations culture. Through sharing Thank You we hope that the messages, the music and the visual storytelling help with the healing that needs to take place for people in our society.

#Storyhive  and @Storyhive are used to show appreciation for the funding support from Telus Storyhive without which this project would not have been developed and distributed to the same degree. #ThankYou #Storyhive

#VideoWorthWatching  and #VideoWorthSharing are Mastermind Studios’ hash tags for projects that have important messages and stories that need to be told and shared. We believe that everyone has an important story and that it is only through the telling and sharing of these stories that we learn to define people and interpret situations with a better understanding. Fear and hatred often starts from ignorance and a lack of understanding. Love, inspiration and personal growth in ourselves and the communities we live in starts with a deeper understanding of people and the diverse circumstances that have made them who they are.
