This is a test of the Emergency Broadcast System

Old Glory on Fire
Originally uploaded by blackcatmedia.

This is a piece I put together to send off to INdTV -- after seeing their choice of topics -- knowing I had the footage already, I just couldn't resist.

The arrangement is by G.W.E. Freiderick (1854) and was located on the 1st Brigade Band website.

The footage was shot on January 20th on the outside edge of Justin Herman Plaza.

INdTV's prompt was as follows:

Star-Spangled Banner
It was an old broadcasting tradition to run the Star-Spangled Banner at the beginning and end of every broadcast day. Create a music video set to your favorite version that reflects your American experience.
