Day 2 at STRONG 2013

By David Ng On May 07, 2013 | 0 Comments

Guest Blogger Mike Jacko  has joined the team from the Circles of Understanding project. HCW Is thrilled to have his help with the conference and to be working with him on the new COU project too. Here's his panorama pic of the tweet team in action! 

LIGHTS! CAMERA! TWITTER!

The Hello Cool World team has been full-on tweeting, and filming the confernce! Many interviews have been done, and many are still to come tomorrow! Saw an iphone on a tripod, went to the Indigitization workshop, learnt about some of the challenges of entering into the digital world, checked out the Online Safety workshop, and also checked out Cross-media Story-telling workshop facilitated by the amazing Cease Wyss. I also missed several other awesome workshops because they all run at the same time :(   The conference has so much information I can barely keep up.  Looking forward to the next few days, can't wait to hear more ideas from First Nations people about Indigitizing their communities! Exciting!! - MJ

Occupy Love: The beginning is here!

Occupy Love banner

Help us reach our goal of 5000 boosts by midnight April 25!

Hello Cool World is excited to be working on the media relations for Occupy Love, an inspiring new documentary from award-winning Canadian filmmaker Velcrow Ripper (Scared Sacred, Fierce Light). Occupy Love explores the cultural uprisings of our time from the Occupy Movement and Arab Spring to the European Summer and environmental protests and asks the question, “How could the crisis we are facing become a love story?”.

Check out the trailer HERE.

Occupy Love is being self-distributed by a talented team led by Velcrow and producers Nova Ami and Ian Mackenzie. Their crowd sourced, social media driven approach to distribution is consistent with the theme of the film, which successfully raised $80,000 through the crowd-funding platforms IndieGoGo and Kickstarter! 

The global response to the film has been amazing with over 200 grassroots screenings being self-organized by individuals and organizations in over 25 countries, and more being added every day. The largest community screening so far took place in Porto Allegre, Brazil on April 11th attracting a whopping 1,500 attendees!

We look forward to watching the momentum grow!

Occupy Love marks the completion of Velcrow's Fierce Love Trilogy, a twelve-year journey which began with Scared Sacred, named one of Canada’s Top 10 movies of 2004, and winner of the 2005 Genie (Canadian Academy Award) for best feature documentary. It continued with 2008′s award winning Fierce Light: When Spirit Meets Action. (We've got a special to buy both these DVDs on our webstore for 40% off.)

We worked on outreach and DVD production for Scared Sacred. As with our work with The Corporation, and The Take, we've been inspired by how films with a social message, can find audiences and inspire those audiences to action. All these films are available on our webstore, and all our profits go to our campaigns, and now also to the distribution platform for social cause media we are developing. Check out our proposal to  CFC's IdeaBOOST program, and please BOOST us, our dream is to better help films like Occupy Love engage with audiences, and to encourage audiences to organize actions as well as screenings.

Occupy Love is a moving, transformative, heartfelt film, featuring Ripper’s signature stunning visuals and rich soundscapes along with interviews from leading visionaries including Naomi KleinBill McKibbenJeremy Rifkinbell hooks and Charles Eisenstein

The Occupy Love US theatrical tour starts Friday, May 3, 2013 in New York City, with screenings and special events to follow in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Santa Cruz and Seattle.

Coming to Canadian theatres starting June 2013! Check out more screenings and opportunities to get involved after the page break...

CDC 2013 recap

By Maria Martin On March 20, 2013 | 0 Comments

The three days at the CDC Conference was a whirlwind of mid-week fun. The team was there to live-tweet CDC conference happenings + their projects around First Nations health and social media promotion. Many attendees recognized and were aware of our projects and campaigns. We did live tweeting & video interviews throughout the conference, so stay tuned for our vlog post highlighting the event. We asked people what community health meant to them & what community health looked like in First Nations communities. We also interviewed Dr. Evan Adams who explained the connection between community health and the new First Nations Health Authority. The wellness model takes a mind, body, spirit approach.

If you see her, say hello!

Hello Cool World Goes to Camp!

By Michelle Reid On March 09, 2012 | 0 Comments

BCPSQC Social Media Camp

Social Media Camp, that is!

On Wednesday, The BC Patient Safety & Quality Council held a Social Media Camp as part of their 2012 Quality Forum. The purpose of the event was to showcase the potential and opportunity for social media in health, including case studies, guidelines and examples of campaigns!

To say that Hello Cool World has a passion for social media and health would be an understatement, so we were delighted to have two opportunities to participate: HCW Creative Director Kat was on a panel discussion entitled The Power of Social Media to Change How We Do Health Care, and I co-presented with BCCDC's Chelsea Haines about I Have Immunity in a workshop on social media campaigns. You can read more about my participation over on the I Have Immunity blog!

Kat's fellow panelists were Canadian Medical Association Editor-in-Chief Pat Rich, David Hume of the Government of BC, and Pamela Fayerman, health reporter for the Vancouver Sun. It was a very esteemed group that Hello Cool World was proud to join!
