This was a special project. Nick was enlisted by the talented cinematographer, Mark Klassen, from Revere Films to produce a music video for the DSBN for education week, but it involved so much more. “Sky’s the Limit” was written & performed by DSBN alum Michael Wainwright; A fantastic & uplifting anthem for the kids.The music video begged for current students to showcase their talents & skills, including vocals. Auditions partook to find a suitable replacements for Michael’s powerful & rocky pipes – and in walked grade 11 Laura Secord Student, Billy Sadler. Not only was his voice fantastic, but he embodied the character the DSBN was working to encourage.
Billy, along with a select group of DSBN’s top vocalists entered W Sound Inc to have the student’s authenticity adding to the track. The same students are seen in the music video.
After months of auditions, rerecording & shooting we are proud to present “Sky’s the Limit”.
