Kaalts’ida Kah, Laughing Crow Productions is proud to announce the release of their newest Animation, a music video for recording artist Kinnie Star called Save Our Waters. Prime Minister Harper sets out on the maiden voyage of the supertanker Bitumen Valdez and is met by opposition out on the waters in the form of a floatilla of canoes, fishing boats and killerwhales!
AP – Masset, BC – The crew of Haida Raid 3 is hard at work on sets and cardboard creation at the Haidawood Studios in Masset, Haida Gwaii. As you can see from the photo here, the characters are starting to get restless. The more they hear about the threat of supertankers posed by the Northern Gateway pipeline, the more they start protesting around.
Thanks to all the volunteers from the community who have been helping make this happen. Looking forward to seeing the whole production up in time to respond to the Harper government’s blessing of another destructive mega-project…
Haida Raid 3 needs your support! This stop motion animation project is a home-grown Haida and non-Haida production — Puppet Activism that takes on Harper and his cronies on the Northern Gateway Pipeline and the expansion of oil tanker traffic on the Northwest Coast. A collaboration between K’alts’idaa K’ah(Laughing Crow) Productions, a storytelling society founded by the Haida carvers Jaalen and Gwaai Edenshaw and Dr. Ken Leslie, an educator and neuroscientist, Haida Raid 3 will feature music from Juno winning musician Alida Kinnie Starr. This year’s theme, “Save Our Waters” is a song from Kinnie that brings into focus what’s at stake in this new round of threats to our ocean from large-scale industrial development.
The collaborators in Haida Raid 3 have launched an Indiegogo campaign to support their work and we invite you to check it out. It has many different levels of rewards for your contributions, including bronze, silver, and gold castings of the characters in the production to Haida prints and stickers. Please help raise funds to make this project a success and send a clear message to the government that we want a healthy coastal economy not an industrial disaster waiting to happen!
