Kamil is at it again. The talented filmmaker whose previous efforts have shot Galway across the globe is about to embark on his latest project. And he wants you all to take part in it.

The Galway Advertiser has teamed up with Kamil for the event that will take place on Saturday June 11 in the heart of the city.

At 1pm on June 11 Galway-based filmmaker Kamil Krolak of Fifty People One Question fame will film the world’s biggest performance of the iconic song Galway Girl. The performance on the day will include the supremely talented Galway-based musician Sharon Shannon who played a big part in the original recording of the song with the legendary Steve Earle.

In addition, the Lackagh Comhaltas one of the biggest trad groups in Galway, the Galway Rose Rosie Burke, widely known folk band Amazing Apples and many many more will also join ‘Galway Girl’ Project. But it needs your help.

This one off event needs your support to make it a global success and this is your chance to be in a video with the spectacular Sharon Shannon. Kamil will be directing and filming the video having created a number of crowd-based videos showing the beauty, cultural diversity, and energy that epitomizes Galway.

His past productions include Fifty People One Question Galway which has received 1.45 million views on YouTube followed closely by Galway Bailando with over a half a million views and the Galway Is Also Happy video having been viewed over 220,000 times.

Kamil and his team would like to invite everyone in Galway to get involved and make this one of the most talked about events of the year. Everyone is welcome to participate. Bands, solo artists, comhaltas groups, performers, sports teams, dancers, actors, schools and colleges, families, local businesses and all members of the community who would like to come along and be part of this exciting project are welcome to join in.

It will be a great opportunity for us to show the world what we have to offer in the City of The Tribes. The filming will take place on Saturday, June 11, at 1PM on Shop Street and the recording will take no longer then 40 minutes. The footage will be turned into another unique viral video promoting the vibrant Galway City and its people - and it sounds like this one is going to be epic.

So come along, tell your family and friends, bring your instruments, smiles, Galway flags and jerseys, dancing skills and a lot of positive energy - because that is all we need.
