IN THE NEWS: Riverside Community College Marching Band featured in colorful music video!

| February 3, 2010 | 0 Comments

This morning we came across an article in Entertainment Weekly that mentioned the well-known and beloved Riverside Community College Marching Band program from Riverside, California.  For those not familiar with RCC’s program they are the program that includes the world-renowned Fantasia winter guard – a long time favorite of fans and judges alike in the WGI World Class. They’ve also previously had many opportunities to participate in big-screen projects including appearances in Austin Powers, The Other Sister, and American Pie: Band Camp (according to their website).

The article “Michel Gondry on his colorful video for Mia Doi Todd’s ‘Open Your Heart’ and more: The Music Mix interview” was written by Simon Vozick-Levinson and posted on yesterday, February 2, 2010.  The video director discusses having an idea in his mind and finding a way to bring that idea to the screen. The members of the RCC marching band are featured, not with instruments, but with colorful shirts, creating a series of color shifts against the stark background of the concrete of the city.

The article also features the embedded music video so you can see singer Mia Doi Todd and the RCC marching band members in action performing to her song, “Open Your Heart.”
