Watch the powerful short film now:

“I wrote Storm late one night, while in lockdown, and posted it on my Instagram account the next day. From there, everything snowballed, and I joined forces with Winters Rock Entertainment and Pond5 to create this incredible aerial video of the world during COVID-19,” said Kiesza. “It has been so inspiring to me, to feel the unity that this pandemic has created. COVID-19 knows no borders, and as a result, it has brought us together as a world.”

The short film, produced by Winters Rock Entertainment, will serve as a call to action for fans– encouraging them to donate to Frontline Care, dedicated to providing rest and care units for healthcare workers in the fight against COVID-19. Pond5 is proud to support the creative community by donating an abundance of footage for the film while fully compensating the contributing artists for their content used in the final production. The full collection of Pond5 footage used in the film can be viewed in the Kiesza “Storm” Collection. In support of frontline workers, Pond5 will donate our share of all licensing revenue from the sale of these assets through May 31, 2020, to

During these challenging times, it is our mission to make a difference, to help our first responders, and to unite the world as a whole, as one.”
