With the recent release of Midnight Shine’s third music video Leather Skin, the team would like to say THANK YOU to the partners involved in the video production and launch.
The Canadian Council for the Arts provided funding to produce the music video. Established in 1957, the Canada Council for the Arts funds Canadian artists and encourages the production of all forms of art in Canada.
Air Creebec, a strong supporter of the band, provided flights to Attawapiskat for the video production crew. Air Creebec is an airline under Cree ownership, flying to many parts of Ontario and Quebec. Without their support, it would be much more difficult to bring people up to Attawapiskat, and for members of Midnight Shine to fly out for concerts (you can find a whole post about Air Creebec here).
FACTOR (the Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent on Recordings) is a public/private partnership that supports the production of sound recordings by Canadian musicians and helps Canadian music companies make recordings available to a wider public.
Outdoor Canada Magazine promoted the release of the video in their magazine and featured an article written by Adrian Sutherland about his hunting experiences and life on the land. Read it in their latest issue (or on their website).
Finally, we would like to thank the Yorkton Film Festival for giving us their big screen to debut Leather Skin during the opening night of their festival!
