Brady Rymer Presents:
“Drop in the Bucket”
By Parents' Choice
Conceived and filmed by young students, the video offers a genuine look inside the school community and the challenges and effort it takes to be a kind and conscientious individual.
“A few of the songs on our latest album, Under the Big Umbrella were inspired by the collaborative work that I had done with HC Johnson Elementary School’s music teacher, Missy O’Keeffe and her students. The students contributed lyrical ideas, song titles and even sang on a few tracks. While working with Missy on the recording, I was introduced to the High School award winning film department and the instructor, Ethan Noble. I asked if his high school kids would like to get involved and produce a music video for one of the songs on the album. We all agreed on “Drop in the Bucket” as a good choice because of the universal message of showing kindness in the schools. The kids took the idea and ran with it – creating different scenarios that explored kindness in the schools and community. The video was shot in two days with 300 elementary school extras and thousands of kindness balls.” – Brady Rymer
