Two and a Half Billion Ideas

Hi, I'm Alec, a 12 year old 6th grader from the Willow School in Gladstone, New Jersey. I made this film to highlight the creativity and ingenuity of the child's mind. It is through the innovation and positive energy of children that solutions to Global Climate Change can be found. I created the soundtrack to this film to illuminate the complexity of the global crisis, juxtaposed to the ease of which children think. The underlying chords in the song are identical to the ones in "Twinkle, Twinkle," yet the harmonies and accompaniments form complex patterns and groupings quite apart from the simple melody. Two and a half billion children will prevail.
