HISTORY WILL JUDGE US BY THE DIFFERENCE WE MAKE IN THE EVERYDAY LIVES OF CHILDREN. -NELSON MANDELA
In 2018, 424,066 children were reported missing. This translates to the entire cities of Minneapolis, NN or Oakland, CA. In 1993, Soul Asylum released a ground-breaking music video for their single Runaway Train. Mixed in with images of the band were pictures of missing children. Because of the video, 26 of the 36 children featured were reunited with their families.
Over three days this past April director Jake Scott and artists, Jamie N Commons, Gallant, and Skylar Grey came together to shoot a new version of the video. With newly designed technology by CISCO, the music video now features missing children local to the viewer. It was an honor and privilege to be a part of this project. Below are stills from the video. — Melissa Roldan
