Recently, we came across a music video directed by Shahana Khan Khalil for We Are The Kids By Walk The Moon, one of the band’s latest tracks. If you don’t already know, Walk The Moon is one of the most popular music group that has recently emerged from the United States of America with hit songs like Shut Up and Dance.
If we had one way to describe the production, direction and the video overall, it would be; powerful. Shot in the streets of the capital, the video and the track itself pays homage to the resilience of kids from places like Pakistan.
What we love is that all the kids in this video are not actors in any shape or form! They are regular kids from the streets of Islamabad. A fun fact that we learned was that these kids also attend a charity school called Mashal Model School in the mornings. How cool is that? Truth be told, we are incredibly impressed by the message the video sends out; it talks about the strength that our next generation needs, the empowerment they yearn for and the courage that they have to take back the future they deserve.
If you haven’t seen the video or heard We Are The Kids By Walk The Moon, we implore you, and we cannot stress enough that you press play and watch the video change the way you perceive our youth and all those kids that walk the streets!
We got talking to Shahana Khan Khalil about this incredible project. Here is what we talked about:
In a nutshell, who is Shahana?
I’m an actor & film kid who likes telling stories.
