Good Question Music Video!

Brought to you by ASTTBC

Presenting our newest music video, Good Question!! We had so much fun making this video, filmed on beautiful Gabriola Island, our home. Special thanks to our kid stars, Veronica and the community members who made this video so special. Big kudos to Jules Molloy and Chloe Straw from Close to the Sun Productions and our prop co-creators Clever Trever, Marius and Esther. What a great team!

Good Question is all about wondering about the world that is all around us and having fun with everyday objects. Don’t ask us how we got shrunk… It sure was fun!
