Plan Piloto Gold Stars Video Pays Tribute to “Heroes without Capes”:  Frontline COVID-19 Workers

My name is Emmanuel Jesus Campos Coral, and I am from Cozumel.

As a result of the pandemic, I decided to get my “Antifaces y Máscaras de la Luna” troupe students together with those of my “Plan Piloto” dance academy, whom we named “Plan Piloto Gold Stars.”

We started rehearsing on March and finished by the end of June. We practiced for 4 months. It was quite lengthy because we were guided by the pandemic “traffic light” every week and, depending on the call for responsibility and increase in COVID cases, we were always very careful during rehearsals; they rehearsed applying social distancing, masks and anti-bacterial gel.

We did not have a space or venue. We have always rehearsed in parks, schools or outdoor places. As days went by I heard students saying they have relatives and friends who are medical staff and they talked about all the work and sacrifice they have done throughout close to 2 years of the pandemic.

That is how we decided to pay tribute y choreographing two songs: SURVIVOR/ I WILL SURVIVE. Those two songs were dedicated to all of them as we see them as “Heroes without a cape.”  We also ask for their pictures so we could put them in a video thanking, not only them, but all medical personnel in the world, and, most certainly without overlooking our Latin Carnival culture such as merengue and soca, rhythms that are very common here in the southeast which is a carnival tradition.

All members made voluntary contributions to pay for the recording and editing of the video. We had the support of the owner of PRODUCCIONES FOTO MARAVILLA, MARIANO VAZQUES. Mariano and his team shot and edited the video that took over 4 hours shooting parts of Cozumel, such as the “Monument of Two Cultures” and BUCCANOS Beach Club, where we were given permission by the owner, INES FALKENBERG, to shoot. Thanks to them we were able to make this video.

Certainly, without the main talents of Cozumel we would not have been able to do it; all the students of the academy and troupe. Thanks to them for their time, energy and talent as the video was a total success.  

“Plan Piloto Gold Stars” rinde homenaje a los “Heroes Sin Capa”, los trabajadores COVID-19 que se encuentran en la primera linea de atención

Mi nombre es Emmanuel Jesus Campos Coral y soy Cozumeleño.

A raíz de la pandemia decidi unir a los alumnos de mi comparsa “Antifaces y Mascaras de la Luna”  y los de mi academia de baile “Plan Piloto,” a quienes nombramos “Plan Piloto Gold Stars.”

Empezamos a ensayar desde marzo y terminamos a finales de junio  – fueron 4 meses de practicas, fue algo extenso  esto debido a que nos guiábamos por el semáforo cada semana y dependiendo del llamado de responsabilidad y la alza en los números de casos de COVID, durante los ensayos siempre fuimos muy cuidadosos ensayaban con sana distancia, cubrebocas y gel antibacterial.

Nosotros no contamos con un espacio o local, siempre hemos ensayando en parques, escuelas o lugares al aire libre, conforme fueron pasando los días  escuche que los alumnos tienen   familiares y amigos que son personal medico y platicaban de todo el trabajo y el sacrificio que ellos han hecho a lo largo de casi 2 años de pandemia.

Fue asi como decidimos coreografiar dos canciones en tributo a ellos que son  SURVIVOR/ I WILL SURVIVE esas dos canciones las dedicamos a todos ellos que de tal forma los vemos como “Heroes sin capa,”  solicitamos de igual manera sus fotos para poder ponerlas en el video  dándole gracias no solamente a ellos si no a todo el personal medico del mundo, y claro sin olvidar nuestra cultura latina carnavalera  como el merengue y soca que son ritmos que se dan mucho por aquí en el sureste que es  tradición carnavalera.

Todos los integrantes hicimos aportaciones económicas voluntarias para poder solventar la grabación y edición del video, tuvimos el apoyo del dueño de PRODUCCIONES FOTO MARAVILLA QUE ES MARIANO VAZQUES , el y su equipo realizaron la filmación y edición del video durante mas de 4 hrs de rodaje en  partes de Cozumel, como lo fue el monumento a las 2 culturas y el club de playa BUCCANOS que nos otorgo el permiso la dueña INES FALKENBERG gracias a ellos pudimos realizar este video.

Claro que sin principales talentos cozumeleños no lo hubiéramos logrado que fueron todos los alumnos de la academia y comparsa gracias a ellos que pusieron su tiempo su energía y talento fue que se logro con éxito total este video.
