Mike Tompkins – Bully Official Music Video

Friday, March 30th, 2012

I am amazed at the partners that GeekUtils has been able to create over the short time that we’ve been building these apps.  A little over a year ago, we were fortunate enough to gain the attention of Mike Tompkins – an extremely talented a capella artist.  Shortly after, we released an official app for his content.

Today, Mike released the official video for the movie Bully – an inspiring film that is taking on the challenge of raising awareness of bullying, and issuing a call to action to those affected.

In Mike’s words (from the video description) –

I wrote and self-produced this song “Stand Up” to empower young people to overcome challenges tied with bullying. I ultimately would like to raise awareness and encourage young people to “Stand Up” and confront the challenges we are currently or may have in the past experienced as a young teenager.

The original music video is embedded, below.  I encourage each of you to visit iTunes and purchase the song (click here) – all proceeds are going to Bully Bust – a nationwide bully awareness effort launched by NSCC.

We congratulate Mike on this awesome original tune and applaud him for his efforts to help raise awareness of this often overlooked reality.

Amazing – all sounds were created solely with Mike’s voice and mouth – how? Here’s a quick behind the scenes:

Working on some updates :)

Wow – it’s been a while since I have posted….  my apologies.

I can’t divulge too much information at the present time, but we are working one some great updates that will hopefully improve the overall experience on all apps based on our popular Vlogger framework.  I’ll post some screenshots as soon as we’re closer to getting them dropped into the store 🙂
