Poignant One-Minute Film From Orlando

ORLANDO, FL – 6/24/2016 (PRESS RELEASE JET) — Three Orlando residents — a harpist, a photographer, and a magician — came together to make a one-minute film about their city’s response to the horrific attacks last weekend and to support the record-setting fundraising initiative for victims and families. 

Said Orlando magician Nathan Coe Marsh: “My instinctive response when faced with destruction is to create; to make something no matter how small. Our city was hit hard on Saturday night; it has been amazing to see the sense of connection and community that has blossomed here in the past few days. These deepened connections stand in direct defiance of the violent attempt to divide our community.”

One viewer wrote on Facebook: “This is beautiful. And it’s the first time a magic trick has made me cry…a transcendent message of hope during this ugly time in our history. And that truly is the stuff of magic.”

The inspiration for the video came from Marsh’s experience at a vigil for the victim’s held at The Doctor Phillips Performing Arts Center the Monday following the attack: “As I walked towards the plaza, there was a family pulled over next to the sidewalk distributing water to all of us — a simple gesture of kindness in the midst of a blazing Summer afternoon in Florida; and then I saw 10,000 of my neighbors on their feet for hours to show our love for the victims, and I thought back on the images that flooded social media of lines stretching as long as a mile to donate blood. I had to find a way to share that message, and the combination of music, magic, and photography was ideal.”
