To The Town, To The Sky

To The Town, To The Sky

Description: A song and video that depicts the challenges and struggles of living in Oakland, California.

As the editor, I used the superimposed and chaotic imagery to show the stress and confusion that can come with Oakland life, but also shows the grit, determination, and beauty of The Town.

The song was recorded by Beats Rhymes and Life staff members Shawn McGowan and Eugene Stovall. They lyrics paint a harsh reality of Oakland, but also point out ways to change some of the issues that effect the city.
