MAKING OF EARTH HOUR MUSIC VIDEOS

30 hours of round the clock footage is collected each year on the day of Earth Hour to showcase the amazing energy, passion and growth of the world's largest grassroots movement for the planet. To secure Avicii's hit song "The Nights" this year and artists like The Temper Trap, Sigur Ross, Coldplay, One Republic and Bastille in the past, we have massive support from our soundtrack agency, artists and their publishers at a very nominal fee. 

Hours of conceptualization, editing, choosing soundtracks is what powers the Earth Hour music video. It is a source of pride for everyone on the team. Our videos build energy for the campaign year after year and we hope you enjoy them as much as we do making them for you. A big shout-out to all our interns, partners and supporters. Thanks for watching and sharing!
