Making music for the kids

An MCAST and Vodafone Malta Foundation music video initiative has raised a generous sum of €2,300 for children housed at Piccola Casa di San Giuseppe in Valletta.  The music video produced last December ran in all Vodafone stores across Malta and Gozo and on Vodafone’s Facebook page generated much interest and proved to be a good tool to raise funds for charity.

The sum was presented by Roberta Pace and Daniel Bruno from Vodafone, MCAST lecturer Keith Abela, MCAST Institute of Art and Design director Stephen Vella and deputy director Melanie Mizzi, to the Ursuline Sisters of Piccola Casa.

The music video was produced in its entirety by year two students pursuing an extended diploma in creative media production at MCAST Art and Design.  Most of the filming took place in MCAST’s new state-of-the-art full HD TV studio in Mosta.  Led by media lecturer Keith Abela, a strong team of 20 students joined forces with Vodafone customer care team members for the production of the video.

All those involved were thrilled that the targeted sum was exceeded.  The contribution went towards the refurbishment of the children’s bedrooms which now have fresh and colourful painted walls, new furniture and a welcome, safe and homely ambience that the children can enjoy.
